Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The

here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic
mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also
find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred
restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping
fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The
