Noble Square Neighborhood Spotlight

Neighborhood News

The Noble Square neighborhood is located within the West Town community of Chicago, Wicker Park is located to the north and Ukrainian Village to the west. Noble Square was established by a changing mix of European immigrant populations over several decades. Following the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, German and Scandinavian settlers were the first to live in the community.  Noble Square, whose “square” is believed to have come from the square-shaped Eckhart Park that falls within its boundaries, has seen quite a bit of revitalization in recent years. Chicago Avenue runs through the neighborhood, has become a hot spot that offers a variety of dining, shopping and nightlife options.


Foodie should definitely check out Chicago Avenue because there are a lot of great unique dining options in Noble Square. My favorite Mexican food places in this neighborhood are El Barco, La Pasadita, Flo and Mexique which is Mexican French fusion.

There are also many different types of cuisines that you can find within the Noble Square Neighborhood. Nini’s Deli is a great place for sandwiches and wraps that are Cuban and Mexican influenced. You can even experience an Italian grocery story at Bari which is grocery story, meat market and it has some of the best sub sandwiches in the city! If you are looking for a tasty Cuban sandwich, than you should try out Habana Libra.


Noble Square is ideal for someone who wants to live near public transportation.  The neighborhood is within walking distance to the Chicago Blue Line stop, the 56 Milwaukee bus and the 66 Chicago Avenue Bus.

Noble Square is a neighborhood that you should visit, if you haven’t had the chance because it has a lot of great restaurants, a park and it’s close to public transportation.  If you are thinking about moving to a new neighborhood, this is a great neighborhood to consider.
