Undoubtedly one of Chicago’s most affluent neighborhoods, the Gold Coast is a mix of grand 19th century mansions, luxury high-rise condominiums and renovated gray and brownstone walkups. Here, old and new seamlessly blend together with the connecting thread of wealth and status. Shaded avenues, landscaped walkways and prim wrought-iron fences add to the neighborhood’s refined appeal. A stroll among the massive stone structures that once housed many of Chicago’s wealthiest and most influential families is breathtaking.
Sharing the block with lofty, contemporary condos are majestic, symmetrical Georgian Revival mansions and impressive, stone-turreted Richardsonian Romanesque townhouses that unquestionably suit the elite, but welcome the attention of any passerby. In fact, Gold Coast neighborhood architecture and history is celebrated by annual walking tours sponsored by various architectural foundations.
Gold Coast Real Estate
Not surprisingly, Gold Coast real estate can be quite pricey. The price for a detached single-family property in the Gold Coast can reach well into the multi-millions. Of course, most of these homes are three or more stories and have up to eight bedrooms, attached garages or coach houses, and are every bit the lap of luxury. When homes start in the millions, you know there are some serious real estate opportunities to be had, and upgraded amenities and fine finishes become standard. On the high end, private townhouses in the Gold Coast neighborhood cost thirteen or fourteen million dollars, which will get you an extravagant Old World-style home with museum quality design, marble tiling and columns, sweeping staircases, and ornate interior embellishments and woodwork.

Best Shopping Stops
Seeing as the Magnificent Mile extends north into the Gold Coast, the question of where to shop in this Chicago neighborhood is a no-brainer. Michigan Avenue and surrounding streets provide some of the city's best shopping.
Sometimes the mall atmosphere can be a little chaotic and crowded, especially on weekends. In that case, Oak, State and Rush streets are excellent Gold Coast shopping alternatives with plenty of trendy boutiques and high-end clothing chains.
Prada (30 E Oak St, 312-951-1113), Barneys New York (15 E Oak St, 312-587-1700), BCBG (55 E Oak St, 312-475-0053), Kate Spade (56 E Oak St, 312-654-8853) and Pratesi (67 E Oak St, 312-943-8422) are all located on Oak Street, a block west of Michigan Avenue. Anyone who pays the slightest attention to fashion will recognize these names and know it's easy to drop a bundle on a single item from any of these retail icons. So unless you've saved up for that adorable handbag you've been eyeing this may be a strip where you want to stick to window browsing.
After a stroll through Oak Street's storefronts, tenacious Gold Coast shoppers will want to scoot over to State Street for more ultra-trendy shops like G'Bani (949 N State St, 312-440-1718) that infuses its apparel with a streak of glamour and glitz that embodies the big city lifestyle and prepares you for a night on the town.
When in the area, we'll usually make a quick trip into the nearby Urban Outfitters (935 N Rush St, 312-640-1919) to cruise through sale racks and check out the bizarre hodgepodge of items. With Urban's wide variety of goods-including novelty books, East Asian-design dishes, jeweled shoes, chic furniture, scented candles and & urban apparel-we never know what we'll walk out with.
Back out on the Magnificent Mile, people come from miles around to shop high-fashion staples such as Bottega Veneta (800 N Michigan Ave, 312-664-3220)-specializing in leather clutches, handbags and belts-and Gucci (312-664-5504), which are both located inside a multi-level mall called The 900 Shops (900 N Michigan Ave, 312-915-3916).
Probably most recognized for its six-story Bloomingdale's (312-440-4460) department store, The 900 Shops feature other en vogue fashion favorites like Club Monaco (312-787-8757), Coach (312-440-1777), MaxMara (312-475-9500) and Cache (312-787-3054). And, for timeless yet trendy, we like to pop into J. Crew (312-751-2739) to check out the latest classic styles and skim through the sale section.
The mall can get pretty busy on weekends, when tourists and out-of-towners descend on Chicago for shopping benders, so if you can, try to visit on weekdays or first thing on Saturday and Sunday-it's worth the early morning wake-up call-trust us.
When your wallet starts looking a bit thin, you still have bargain options in the Gold Coast neighborhood. H&M (840 N Michigan Ave, 312-640-0060) offers cool clothes and accessories sporting price tags that won't give you sticker shock. H&M tends to be overrun with young, weekend shoppers creating long lines for both the fitting room and checkout. So, again, whenever possible it pays to go on a week day.
Happen to be in the market for a long, white gown you only plan to wear once? This section of town has a cluster of some of the best bridal salons and wedding services around. The bride-to-be can browse through hundreds of stunning dresses from designer collections at Ultimate Bride (106 E Oak, 312-337-6300), Dimitras Bridal Access (1011 N Rush St, 312-787-0920), Belle Vie Bridal Couture LLC (34 E Oak St, 312-751-2222) and Mira Couturier Ltd (1 E Delaware Pl, 312-255-1699). Make an appointment and then spend the afternoon twirling around in front of the mirror-imagining the walk down the aisle. The dresses in these Gold Coast bridal boutiques span from beautiful and affordably priced to exquisite and extremely expensive, so no matter what your tastes and budget, you're sure to find the ideal frock for your big day.
What's on the Menu?
The Gold Coast neighborhood caters to every taste with notable sophistication and world-wide recognition. People from all over the city come here to dine on everything from fresh sushi to upscale Italian to burger and fries!
But it's not just the food that's famous here. The Gold Coast boasts a handful of restaurants that are just as well-known for their celebrity diners as the food itself. The Pump Room (1301 N State Pkwy, 312-266-0360) has been around since 1938 and is one of Chicago's most highly prized dining experiences.
The swanky interior is accented with an entire wall featuring photographs of celebrities enjoying a meal in the restaurant's coveted seat of honor: Booth One. But whether you're a celeb or not, Pump Room chefs treat their guests to superbly prepared contemporary American-style dishes kissed with a touch of French influence and complemented by the restaurant's first-rate wine list.
Also adorned with signed photographs of their superstar patrons, Gibson's Bar and Steakhouse (1028 N Rush St, 312-266-8999) has been around for almost 20 years, and still serves the best steak in town. Gibson's is a popular place for both locals and out-of-towners, but no matter how busy it gets, the wait staff has everything under control making for a delightful dining experience.
Situated on the bustling intersection of Rush and State streets, Tavern on Rush (1031 N Rush St, 312-664-9600) is another well-known restaurant in the center of the Gold Coast's busy dining district. With outdoor sidewalk seating that wraps around the entire front of the restaurant, the Tavern is especially popular during warm weather months. Still, residents and out-of-towners alike don't mind making reservations well in advance for the chance to visit this classic Chicago seafood and steakhouse.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Tavern on Rush offers diners delicious options for any time of day or night. We like to visit at midday for a healthy soup and sandwich combination, matching the tomato bisque with a rib eye club that stacks lettuce, tomato, mushrooms, fontina cheese, sauteed onions and chipotle mayo on an eight ounce prime rib eye steak.
Vegetarians may prefer the grilled Portobello mushroom sandwich on focaccia or one of the gourmet salads that incorporate organic mixed greens and artisan cheeses. The dinner rush here takes it up a notch with London broil, filet mignon, grilled swordfish, whole roasted chicken and shrimp cipriani pasta, followed by mouthwatering bites of mocha mud pie, lemon crème brulee or chocolate marble tiramisu.
For primo ocean cuisine, Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House (1024 N Rush St 312-640-0999) is just down the block, specializing in a scrumptious seafood menu. Adventurous eater or not, you've got to sample Hugo's signature amphibian appetizer: the pan-fried frog legs. Honestly, we think they taste just like chicken. This restaurant also offers a superior selection of fresh oysters, crab legs, lobster, fish and steak.
Another spot for tantalizing dishes from the deep blue is just around the corner at McCormick and Schmick's (41 E Chestnut St, 312-397-9500). Seafood is flown in daily from around the globe to provide exquisite flavor and freshness. Known for its intimate atmosphere and world-class service, this is an excellent place to celebrate a special occasion and sink your teeth into masterfully-prepared seafood delicacies.
European influence is seen in many of the Gold Coast neighborhood restaurants. Bistro Zinc (1131 N State St, 312-337-1131) and Cafe Des Architectes (20 E Chestnut, 312-324-4063) serve French cuisine while Carmine's (1043 N Rush St, 312-988-7676), Cafe Spiaggia( 980 N Michigan Ave Level 2, 312-280-2750) Merlo on Maple( 16 W Maple St, 312- 335-8200) will whip up some of the best Italian pastas in the city. Other global inspirations permeate the neighborhood's dining scene at Tsunami (1160 N Dearborn St, 312-642-9911), a funky Japanese sushi bar and sake lounge.
Despite all these upscale eateries and international dining options, sometimes what we really crave is a mouthwatering Chicago staple like the hotdog with all the fixings. Lucky for us, the Gold Coast has Downtown Dogs (804 N Rush St, 312-951-5141). This diner offers a traditional menu of all-American classics within a dog-themed decor. An endless stream of char dogs, double cheddar cheese dogs, Italian beef and zucchini fries satisfy taste buds in this cozy hole in the wall.
Night on the Town
In addition to restaurant bars that double as hot nighttime hangouts, the Gold Coast has plenty of trendy clubs and swanky lounges that attract both local residents and tourists for an evening out on the town.
Kick up your heels at The Leg Room (15 W Division St, 312-337-2583), one of Chicago's most popular nightspots. Drawing groups of hip, energetic partiers who are itching to dance, you can expect a line up outside after 11pm. But the scene inside this upscale dance club is worth any wait.
Live DJs spin music until the wee hours as people crowd onto the dance floor and sip specialty martinis around the gigantic island bar. Only the totally chic are allowed past the red velvet rope into this posh establishment whose entrance is an in-the-know door in the middle of an alley.
When we're a little worn out from too much shopping, spending the evening at a nice relaxing lounge sounds a bit more appealing than any of the wild Gold Coast nightclubs. If music is your thing, check out the always entertaining musicians playing their hearts out across 52 keys while you relax with a delicious drink at the Zebra Lounge (1220 N State Pkwy, 312-642-5140).
Le Bar (20 E Chestnut St, 312-324-4000), inside the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower hotel, is one of Chicago's classier watering holes and is always a great choice for a Gold Coast night out on the town. We like hanging out in the overstuffed couches and armchairs as servers pour our martinis tableside. It's easy to unwind and ease into a pleasurable evening at the 3rd Coast Cafe (1260 N Dearborn, 312-649-0730). The sophisticated ambience is balanced with casual comfort, inviting guests to enjoy a wide assortment of wine inside Chicago's oldest cafe in the Gold Coast.
There are times when nothing sounds better than putting back a cold brew or two. In that case, we have a couple favorite bars in the neighborhood that deserve a mention. With a reasonably priced selection of domestic and imported beer, Dublin's (1050 N State St, 312-266-6340) is at the top of our list. The atmosphere is pretty laid-back with a few flat-screen TVs, linen-covered tables and traditional green and dark wood decor. We tend to gravitate toward the large, U-shaped bar where we can chat with the bartender and listen to classic Generation Y tunes on the jukebox.
Streeter's Tavern (50 E Chicago Ave, 312-944-5206) provides a handy stop for just a few drinks or an entire night out. This isn't just any old neighborhood dive bar thanks to a lively atmosphere where you can play beer pong, foosball, ping pong and even Jenga if you had your fill of relaxation.
Being as this is Chicago, the Gold Coast also has a few venues that offer the sweet tunes of live blues and jazz.
Regular folks and world-famous celebs like Steven Tyler, Burt Reynolds and Gina Gershan have been coming to the Back Room (937 N Rush St, 312-751-2433) for over 40 years to hear jazz, blues, R&B, Motown and funk. Playing every night of the week, performers give an amazing show to crowds who fill the intimate tables.
The Underground Wonder Bar (710 N Clark St, 312-266-7761) also provides music-filled nights. While acts highlight blues and jazz, other genres slip in the mix on a regular basis. Playing her own songs, the bar's owner Lonie Walker joins the line-up about four nights out of the week. The Underground is small and only seats around 60 people. But even when it's full to capacity, you won't have any trouble enjoying the incredibly talented artists playing up on the stage.
The Gold Coast theater scene is a bit limited, but the newly reopened Drury Lane Theatre Water Tower Place (175 E Chestnut St, 312-642-2000) offers Broadway plays and musicals right around the corner from the Water Tower Place shopping mall. Classic theater-red curtains and auditorium seats welcome an intimate number of 549 patrons per show. Dinner and theater packages are also available in combination with family-friendly restaurant Mity Nice Bar and Grill on the mezzanine level of the Water Tower.
Mark Your Calendar
Gold Coast's extraordinary architecture is no secret-anyone can observe the landmark structures by simply passing through the residential streets. It's the intricate gardens hidden behind the aged stone edifices that can only be viewed during the neighborhood's annual Dearborn Garden Walk and Heritage Festival.
Held in mid-July, the self-guided tour takes visitors to more than 20 private gardens on Astor, State, Dearborn and La Salle streets and Sandburg Terrace between Division Street and North Avenue. The unique, award-winning landscaping includes brilliant flower displays, serene lily ponds, outdoor sculptures, enchanting fountains and ornate gazebos.
Select gardens have live classical and jazz music, providing just the right soundtrack for the oldest garden walk in country. And visitors can learn a lot about Dearborn Street's historic architecture on the narrated walking tour-also included in the event's fee.
Not technically held within the Gold Coast borders anymore, but close enough to be included in the festivities, the Gold Coast River North Art Fair is a three-day festival that takes place a block from the Gold Coast in neighboring River North community.
Drawing hundreds of thousands to the vicinity, this "Grand Daddy" of art fairs has been around for 50 years and is the largest in Chicago. More than 400 artists from all over the globe come to the neighborhood for the juried event. For the first weekend in August art tents, food stands and music venues occupy La Salle Street between Superior and Erie. In addition to perusing the exhibited work, we enjoy seeing artistry in progress as glass blowers demonstrate their skills for the public.
Whether emerging from a shopping spree on Michigan Avenue or venturing out to dine on State Street, both tourists and locals will find ample taxis along these two busy Gold Coast thoroughfares. Because the streets are so hectic, driving and parking around here can be wild! Fortunately, the Gold Coast neighborhood has about two dozen parking structures and lots to accommodate the excess of cars. For residents, buying a permanent parking space comes with the territory. If not included with the price of your home, a spot here can cost a lot extra-but it's a small price to pay for a dependable spot in this highly desirable neighborhood.
Traveling either north or south from the Gold Coast is a breeze on Lake Shore Drive which runs along the neighborhood's eastern edge. But if you prefer the convenience of public transportation, the CTA Red Line train has stops at Clark & Division and Chicago & State, both just a block west of the Gold Coast's western border. The bus can often be even easier than the train with several routes servicing the residential streets and lively commercial districts. As long as we get to exercise the credit card at our favorite stores along the Magnificent Mile-who cares how we get there!
School's in Session
Some of the city's best-rated schools are found in the Gold Coast neighborhood. Ogden Elementary (24 W Walton St, 773-534-8110) is a highly-regarded primary school where local parents can send their young ones to class just blocks from home.
Having been established 150 years ago, this institution offers students a variety of programs including an after school program, the International Baccalaureate Programs, and C.H.O.I.C.E. (Children's Horizons Opening In Chicago Education), which all focus on expanding our young ones' knowledge of the world and preparing them for a successful life in today's global economy.
The Latin School college preparatory for junior kindergarten through twelfth grade is also a prime educational facility in the area, and for the older students, Loyola University's Water Tower campus is in the Gold Coast as well.
