Time Out released a list of the 40 coolest neighborhoods in the world and one of Chicago’s own made it into the ranks. Uptown, Chicago is the 24 coolest neighborhood in the WORLD. Needless to say, the happening area is then considered the coolest in Chicago. The neighborhood is historically known for its jazz clubs, restaurants and bars. Al Capone even frequented the area way back when.
Uptown is home to one of my favorites: the The Green Mill, a jazz club with live music and dance that would be tightly packed before the pandemic. It’s definitely one of the places I can’t wait to return to when some sort of normalcy is revived and it does deserve this title as one of the coolest neighborhoods in the world!
