The Space

Touring musician's studio apartment in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood.

While I am a musician by trade, I like to design and create things. As you can see, my apartment is full of pieces that I've made from scratch or repurposed - old doors, plumbing pipe, milk crates, whatever else I can find that catches my eye! While most studio apartments in Chicago are tiny, this one is spacious with room for 2 in the full-size bed and one on the sofa if necessary. There is also a separate kitchen, dining room, bathroom with shower and tub, closet, and coin laundry downstairs.

This apartment is in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood, on the near northwest side of the city. You have easy access to the Blue Line at Logan Square (to O'Hare, downtown, Wicker Park, etc.), and the Fullerton bus (east to Lincoln Park and the lakefront). The neighborhood is full of the best restaurants and bars in the city. Some of my favorites are Scofflaw (recently named the Best Bar in Chicago), Tula, Wasabi, The Boiler Room, and Revolution Brewing. There is also plenty of live music nearby at places like Cole's Bar and The Whistler. For your groceries, The Dill Pickle Food Co-Op is close-by, and Cermak Produce and Tony's are within walking distance.

Parking is safe, free, and relatively easy on nearby streets, and the area is extremely bike-friendly.

I am a professional musician and educator in Chicago, originally from Indiana. Other than playing music, I like to stay active, eat well, and hang out with my dog, Moose.

  • Charlie was our host in Logan Square and he was communicative and had everything ready for us when we arrived. His place is comfortable, clean and representative of his interests. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Logan Square and Charlie's place. We could walk easily to the "L" and local eateries. So nice to visit downtown Chicago from one of the neighborhoods. A bonus is the quick trip to O'Hare when it's time to go home.

    Response from Charles:

    Yeah...although I'm not a coffee-drinker, I definitely will get one. Thanks!

  • Charlie's place was very pleasant and comfortable, and he was an excellent host. We liked the neighborhood, especially being so close to the great restaurants and shops at Logan Square. We would happily stay here again.

  • This was my second stay and I had a lovely time again. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and Charles was very flexible when I needed a few more hours than planned to check out. Highly recommended as a base from which to visit Chicago.

  • I have nothing but good things to say about Charles' apartment. It was our first time visiting Chicago and we enjoyed relaxing in his home as much as the city itself. It looks exactly like in the photos, except I would say it feels much more spacious.

    With CTA and bus lines nearby, getting around was as convenient as can be (take the Blue Line to Damen and you'll walk out of the station to a cafe and not one but TWO donut shops!), and there are lots of wonderful bars and restaurants a short walk away in Logan Square. There is also a Walgreen's down the street in case you forget any toilettries.

    Thank you for opening your home up to us, Charles! We will definitely stay here again next time we visit Chi-Town.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Charles was very reachable and responsive even though he was out of town. Apartment was very comfortable. Kitchen, although small, was very functional - I even made a quiche during my stay. Parking on the street was a breeze as I found a spot right in front of the building every time I returned. Would definitely stay again if I make another trip to Chicago.

  • Charles' studio was a fantastic place to stay! The space was every bit as bright and neat and clean as it appears in the images. Charles was super responsive to all communication and a pleasure to work with. This was my first time to stay in Logan Square and I absolutely loved it. Coming 'home' in the evening to Charles' beautiful apartment was a big part of that. I definitely recommend.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Charles' apartment. We didn't see Charles as he was out of town, but the arrangements for access worked smoothly. The apartment is conveniently located on the Blue line midway between O'Hare airport and the downtown area. If you're staying for a few days, then take the opportunity for a little self-improvement by dipping into Charles' eclectic library!

  • Perfect apartment, perfect location... All in all a great stay! Thanks Charles
