Located on Chicago's Lower West Side, Pilsen invites you to explore the treasures that wait around every corner. Pilsen was originally inhabited by Czech immigrants, who named the district after the second largest city in their homeland.
Bold murals are on every corner and in the most unexpected places — on the fronts of homes, along railway overpasses, and wrapped around train platforms. The artful vibe continues within storefront galleries and studios, as well as in the colorful collections of the National Museum of Mexican Art, a highly-regarded cultural institution.
You'll find offbeat vintage shops, independent coffee houses and quaint cafes alongside bodegas, bakeries, and restaurants serving authentic Mexican cuisine.
