Pilsen, an iconic Lower West Side Chicago neighborhood, has traditionally been considered “up-and-coming”. Today, it is anything but. There are not many neighborhoods in Chicago with abundant access to culture, history, dining, music, entertainment, and affordability. The uniqueness of the neighborhood has even been recognized by Forbes as one of the best neighborhoods in the world (#12). Therefore, it is the best time to invest in your future and purchase a home in Pilsen.
Pilsen’s roots go back almost 200 years to the 1840s. The neighborhood’s origins throughout the 1800s were predominantly European. Over the course of the 20th century, the neighborhood became home to the city’s growing Mexican population.

La Esperanza, 5 Rabinitos, Don Pedro Carnitas, La Luna, and Pilsen Yards are other neighborhood staples that will give you a taste of the best Mexican in the city.
You can’t talk about Pilsen without talking about Thalia Hall. Upon first glance, it looks like it could be a luxury condo building. Behind the brick walls, it is a bustling oasis of indie music and live entertainment. Most shows are 17+, so it is a great location for an adult’s night out.
