Charming, Old-World Ukrainian Village
Ukrainian Village is bordered by Division Street to the north, Chicago Avenue to the south, Western Avenue to the west, and Damen Avenue to the east.
Ukrainian Village saw a population boost when it was first settled by German immigrants after the Chicago Fire. Following this wave came the Ukrainians, many of whom were hired as craftsmen to build the mansions in wealthier neighborhoods, such as Wicker Park.
Most of the communities in West Town have seen a steady increase in housing prices and Ukrainian Village is no exception. Although local preservationists may be a bit perturbed by the new condo developments and the village’s rehabbed houses for sale in Chicago, the community hasn’t lost its Old-World charisma. Many of the brick homes constructed in the Victorian-style from years’ past are still standing amidst the village’s verdant residential streets. Although the neighborhood has seen some gentrification and a changing demographic, there is still a 15,000-strong population of ethnic Ukrainians and it is not uncommon to hear Ukrainian spoken in the streets.
The village continues to be an important resource and community for Ukrainian-Americans and is home to several Ukrainian establishments, including the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, the Ukrainian National Museum, and the Ukrainian Cultural Center. Two of Chicago’s largest Ukrainian churches, St. Nicholas Catholic Church and Sts. Volodymyr and Olha Ukrainian Catholic Church, are both hallmarks of the neighborhood.
Where to Eat
There are a variety of dining options; whether you want breakfast, lunch, munchies, or to get down and chow down, Ukrainian Village has you covered. If you’re goal is to “eat carnivorously,” then meaty-Boeufhaus is just the place for you. The owner’s tagline certainly draws carnivores, however there is plenty for vegetarians to salivate over as well. This French and German-influenced steakhouse, helmed by chef Brian Ahern, puts as much attention to his vegetable-based dishes as his meat-rich ones. The copper-topped bar which spans across the room is perfect for those eager to saunter on up for a quick bite and drink.
For slightly lighter fare (not really), put your order in for brunch at Whisk. The downright vibrant and sunny atmosphere is sure to perk you up in the morning – and if that doesn’t do it, the coffee certainly will. For dinner, Whisk offers a Chicago Avenue burger. What’s that? A duo of thick patties, brisket, and onion rings – sure to satiate even the pickiest eaters.
Bars and Clubs
From bro bars to craft cocktails, Ukrainian has a bar scene that’s sure to please. If you require just a few options in your beer menu, check out Fatpour Tap Works. This local bar offers over 200 beers to choose from – 50 of which are on tap. While this two-floor joint is spacious, it tends to attract sports fans drawn to the flickering, pale blue lights on game nights.
Looking for an unusual vibe to accompany your night cap? Check out Lockdown. This jail-themed bar delivers superb burgers and a variety of beers to go with. Perhaps most interesting is the root beer, served up in a frosted mug with 19% alcohol. The bar is outfitted with prison bars in the back, in case you want to send a few selfies back home of your new digs in Chicago.
