Since the late 19th century, this area south of Wicker Park has long been the heart of Ukrainian culture in Chicago. Three churches — St. Nicholas Cathedral, Sts. Volodymyr and Olha, and St. Volodymyr Orthodox — anchor the neighborhood and gesture to its history as a refuge for Ukrainian Catholics. Two museums — The Ukrainian National Museum and The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art — highlight the contributions that the region has made to the arts and culture. Since 1993, the Ukrainian Village has been home to one of the most important live music venues in the country, The Empty Bottle, a 450-capacity club that has hosted shows by everyone from Shellac to Grimes. In recent years, the neighborhood has welcomed a plethora of new restaurants — like Boefhaus, which recently popped up on a lot of best-of-Chicago lists — and bars, aimed squarely at the hip, young contingent of renters who have started to take advantage of the neighborhood’s beautiful streets and relatively affordable rents.
