Chicago's Gold Coast is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city because it is home to some of the most lavish homes and most breathtaking views!

The Gold Coast is bounded by North Avenue on the north, Oak Street on the south, Lake Michigan to the east, and Lasalle Street to the west. What’s special about this neighborhood is that it is within walking distance from the beautiful Lake Michigan’s North Avenue Beach and bike trails! It’s also steps from the magnificent Lincoln Park and attached Zoo, Michigan Avenue shopping, Division Street bars and Rush Street nightclubs!


The Gold Coast is one of the best hot spots for fine dining in Chicago! Step into Gibson’s Bar and Steakhouse for incredible Black Angus steaks, Tavern on Rush, or Hugo’s Frog Bar for some of the finest seafood in the city!

If you’re in the mood for sushi, check out Jellyfish for modern, upscale, Pan-Asian and Ra for fabulous sushi rolls and Japanese fusion dishes!


The entertainment in the magnificent Gold Coast can easily be described as classy! It’s packed with famous clubs like the Pump Room, but also late night pubs like McFadden’s and Butch McGuire’s where the scene is jolly and the service is beyond compare!

The Division Street strip is full of clubs and bars like Primary Nightclub, Detention Nightclub, Bootleggers, Shenanningans and Snuggery. Take a walk down the strip on a Friday or Saturday night and see all the hopping establishments and friendly faces!


Lincoln Park is an oasis in the city for wildlife and people.
