A Small Neighborhood that Packs a Punch
Located directly east of East Village is Chicago’s Noble Square, a tiny neighborhood that just seems to be barely wedged in between Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village. Bordered by the Kennedy Expressway to the east, Ashland to the west, Division to the north, and Grand to the south, Noble Square’s name refers to the square-shaped Eckhart Park. The one-block square park lies on the northeast corner of Chicago and Noble and has been a focal point of the neighborhood since its inception.
In recent years, Noble Square has been seeing it’s boundaries be appropriated into other, more trendy neighborhoods by locals. Noble Square’s northern section is often referred to eastern Wicker Park, and its southern half is referred as belonging to West Town. Perhaps that’s due to the fact that Noble Square’s popularity has increased among hipsters, thereby shrinking its borders.
What to Eat in Noble Square

The restaurant offers beer grub to go with your botanical elixir. For the uninitiated, try the alcoholic root beer – for the adventurous, try a beer flight and enjoy the gamut of beers on tap, ranging from ginger wheat ale to chili stout.

Fortunately, there’s an outdoor patio in the summer, so the employees can mop up after the clientele afterwards.
