Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, located on the far north side, is a historical and ethnic crossroads. In the 1920s and ’30s it was home to a vibrant entertainment scene, with jazz clubs, dance halls, and silent film production. The Aragon Ballroom, the Riviera Theatre, the Uptown Theatre, and the Green Mill, all still in operation, are a testament to the neighborhood’s thriving nightlife. In the 1950s the area experienced a mass exodus as families moved out to the suburbs. This allowed more diverse families to move in to the historic mansions that had been converted into multi-family units. Today, Uptown still has a dynamic nightlife that includes all kinds of music and a variety of ethnic restaurants. The neighborhood also enjoys excellent Lake Michigan access at Montrose Beach, Montrose Harbor, and the beautiful Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary.
