The streets remain primarily residential, while the busy avenues of Chicago and Grand offer a variety of dining, shopping and nightlife options. People come from all over the city to experience the unique restaurants in Noble Square that have become all the rage in Chicago. A testament to Noble Square's culinary popularity: Some of these places are booked a month in advance for the weekends, and no matter what night you go out, there is bound to be a throng of hungry Chicagoans enjoying the neighborhood's eclectic menu choices. After dinner, the focus turns toward Noble Square's spirited watering holes. There are a good number of casual sports bars, the kind with pool tables and giant TVs for watching a game.

Noble Square History

This small pocket within West Town (immediately south of Wicker Park) is loosely centered about a one-block square park at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Noble Street, called Eckhart Park. Though little information exists on the history of Noble Square, possibly because of its close proximity to Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village, we can assume the settlement and development of Noble Square was similar to that of its neighbors. Which means the neighborhood basically began to grow after the Chicago Fire of 1871, when a blend of wealthy and working class Polish, Ukrainian, and other European immigrants set up homes in the blocks of the west side.

Noble Square neighborhood developed alongside Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village, and over the years the area has seen an ebb and flow of different demographics. In general, Throughout its history, the Noble Square neighborhood has maintained a similar feel to that of Ukrainian Village with a splash of Wicker Park thrown in—in terms of both the neighborhood and the neighbors. It seems many former Wicker Parkers, disenchanted with the rapid gentrification of their own neighborhood, have migrated a few blocks south to set up shop in Noble Square.

Today, the Noble Square neighborhood is home to a mixed population who enjoy the Mom-and-Pop businesses, neighborhood walk-ability, proximity to the Loop, and diversity of the Noble Square area.
