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.
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
Charles' studio was stylish and comfortable, and a great location to visit friends in the city. Since his place is a few blocks from the blue line, it's very convenient to both the airport and the train station, and the apartment was nice and quiet despite being so close to Fullerton.
Staying in Logan Square, particularly at Charles' studio, was the perfect choice for us. The studio was a pleasure to come home to after spending hours in the various Logan Square restaurants, shops and bars. It's proximity to the L was incredibly convenient, and Charles was a fantastic host. Can't wait to stay with him again!
Me and my friend visited Chicago in early March, and we really enjoyed our stay at the Studio Apartment. It looks exactly like the pictures.
Charles was out of town when we were there. However, he was very helpful and always quick to respond if we had any questions.
Staying in his apartment was simply a pleasure.
Charles was a great host. The apartment was exactly as pictured when I arrived, and he was available to answer any questions I had. I'd definitely recommend staying at Charles' apartment to someone visiting Chicago!
Beautiful, clean apartment. Super accomodating host. Great location. WIll call again next time we're in Chicago.
Most excellent space. Charles was kind and worked around schedules. Would buy again!
Charles has a very cool apartment and we had a great stay. We came during February - pretty cold! - but the apartment was toasty warm. It's in a good part of town, with plenty of cafes and bars nearby. Everything went fine with picking up the keys and Charles gave us some good local tips. Definitely recommend staying here!
