About Roscoe Village
on the North Side of Chicago along the beautiful Chicago River, Roscoe
Village is known as the "Village Within the City". After the Great
Chicago Fire, much of the area had to be rebuilt and what is left from
that period are the classic red brick homes and the charming
storefronts that still exist today. Our award-winning restaurants offer
a refreshing variety of fare (including sushi, Mediterranean, Italian
as well as classic American) creating an enviable culinary landscape.
Nearby watering holes and wine depots are only steps away - this one
specializing in world class tap beers, that one presenting an eclectic
selection of wines and liquors. Roscoe Village boasts an incredible
diversity of boutique stores guaranteed to match your style! The
fashions span from contemporary to funky, for men, women, and toddlers.
After that, the choice is yours as you browse shop after shop featuring
personalized stationery, gifts, bed and bath supplies, women's shoes
and much, much more. Today, Roscoe Village finds itself a fun, safe,
thriving, community oriented niche of the city, and welcomes visitors
with open arms.

Our collection of shops, restaurants and services is a rarity in
today's chain store world. A stroll in Roscoe Village will introduce
you to independent, one of a kind emporiums - in many, the owner is
probably taking care of you! Each store reflects the personality of its
proprietor - in some the atmosphere is sleek and sophisticated, in
others it may be quirky and off-beat. The diversity offers something
for every one
and is a refreshing departure from a shopping mall experience. Visitors
are especially happy to find stores offering the kind of unique
merchandise they cannot find in their hometowns. Most boutiques are
open seven days a week. Our restaurants serve lunch, dinner, weekend
brunch and daily breakfast. We look forward to seeing you in our lovely
