The Invention of the Southport Corridor

Within the past few years, the stretch of Southport between Belmont and Irving Park has experienced tremendous growth both with the emergence of upscale boutiques and a boom in new construction. Formerly “West Lakeview,” the area has now been dubbed with the more appropriate title of “The Southport Corridor.” In addition to some of the pioneers who first opened boutiques on Southport, two familiar names have recently moved in. The cosmetic giant, Benefit, and the ever-so urban Anthropogie are the street’s newest residents. If shopping is not your thing and you prefer the movies, walk over to the Music Box to catch a great Independent or Foreign film. After a full day, the street’s dinner options are endless. Head on over to one of the great pubs such as Cullen’s for authentic Irish pub grub and a pint or if you are in the mood for something more romantic, grab a bottle of wine at Que Syrah and opt for Tango Sur, a truly spectacular Argentine grill.  With so much to offer, Southport is at the top of my list.
