Welcome to Lakeview
Located along the shores of Belmont Harbor and just north of Lincoln Park, Lakeview East is one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in Chicago. Lakeview East is home to iconic Wrigley Field, Wrigleyville, the Belmont Theater District and historic Boystown which provides an eclectic, lively entertainment community.
The Lakeview East commercial district has a strong purchasing power and a “buy local” philosophy. Our merchants strive to maintain a strong independent retail mix in a unique urban environment. Our business community includes specialty boutiques, award winning restaurants, music venues, coffeehouses and some of the best neighborhood bars in the Midwest.
Lakeview East is the birthplace of many successful businesses that have expanded locally and/or nationally such as Intelligentsia Coffee, Wilde, Reckless Records, DryHop Brewers, Ann Sather’s and Brazilian Bowl.
