Trendy • Murals • Cultural enclave
Artistic and diverse, Pilsen embraces its immigrant roots. Authentic Italian eateries sit next to some of the best — and most reasonably priced — Mexican restaurants in Chicago. Events like Pilsen Fest celebrate live music and local artists, and a slew of casual bars have an everyone-knows-your-name vibe. It's also an Instagrammer's heaven, thanks to the bright murals that splash across entire buildings. The Pink Line ferries residents downtown.
Vibrant murals: check. Thriving punk scene: check. Mouthwatering Mexican food: check, check, check. Pilsen's home to a lot of things, and great cuisine is one of them. So get in here quick for a taste of the hood.
