Oprah, Vince Vaughn, Tina Fey, Joakim Noah — these are just a few of the big-name celebrities that live or have lived in the great city of Chicago. Downtown Chicago offers a wide variety of quality restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and living options that can make anyone feel right at home, whether they live in the limelight or not. Here are the top three most popular downtown Chicago neighborhoods that celebrities reside in!
#1 River North
This neighborhood is definitely a hot-spot! Known for its lively nightlife, River North has become the destination for many celebrities — for a great night out, and also a place to call home. Many athletes from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Chicago Bulls live in the area. Both Patrick Kane, of the Blackhawks, and Derek Rose, of the Bulls, have luxury condos in the famous Trump Tower, along with Steve Harvey, TV host and comedian. Whether you want to run into one of these celebrities at the Sound-Bar nightclub, right on Ontario Street, or dine along with them at the mouth-watering Asian-fusion restaurant, Sunda, right on Illinois Street, living in River North will be your best option!
#2 Lakeshore East
Right by the Chicago River, and boasting the iconic Millennium Park, Lakeshore East is another hub for celebrities — just ask Lady Gaga or Chicago Blackhawks’ captain, Jonathan Toews! Shop on the Magnificent Mile, cheers the Chicago Bulls on at the local sports pub, M Bar, or chow down at Stetson’s Chop House. The choice is yours when you become a part of the awesome Lakeshore East community!
#3 Gold Coast
As one of downtown Chicago’s most affluent neighborhoods, star sightings are anything but rare in the Gold Coast. Home to the famous Cusack siblings, Joan and John, and reality television stars, Giuliana and Bill Rancic, this upscale historic district is booming with entertainment! Spend a sunny day at the beautiful Oak Street Beach, stroll down State Street and shop at the numerous trendy boutiques and high-end stores, or explore at the International Museum of Surgical Science. Join in on the fun by living in your very own luxury apartment in the Gold Coast!
