Concierge.com's insider take:

More than ten years after first being "discovered" by bohos and style-makers, the neighborhood has earned its high-hip status with the city's most exuberant boutiques, galleries, cafés, and indie-rock bars. The area is a couple miles northwest of the Loop and is anchored by the intersection of North, Damen, and Milwaukee avenues.

Begin at Hejfina, where the smartly edited collection veers from men's and women's labels (most popular: Acne Jeans from Sweden) to exhibitions by local artists to pared-down furniture. Intent on outfitting your inner outlaw, Bonnie and Clyde's is the only Chicago boutique to feature Project Runway winner Jeffrey Sebelia's Cosa Nostra line. But it's the very witty Vlieger & Vandam bags (one purse comes printed with the entire skeletal X-ray of a small dog) that put the shop on the edgy map.

Stop in at the neighboring Hot Chocolate for cakes, shakes, and warm brioche donuts—or just grab some sandwich cookies from the takeout counter. Then head to Apartment Number 9 for menswear by Dries Van Noten, Etro, and Paul Smith. P. 45 has innovative, global women's labels (Phillip Lim, Ulla Johnson, Michelle Mason), plus some local jewelry designers you've never heard of—yet. Stitch is crowded with glazed Tampopo tableware, Votivo candles, and striped, jewel-toned Missoni wool throws.

For more of a patina, try Pagoda Red, where beaming Buddhas and antique yet eminently modern-looking Chinese chests, coffers, and chairs stand ready to furnish your loft. At Reckless Records, the tireless staff will help you sift through vinyl and rare box sets of jazz, soul, and, of course, indie recordings. End up at Trillium, where the haul (primarily women's fashions from brands like Joie, Cynthia Vincent, and Vince, plus J.W. Hulme bags) showcases preppy classics with a tomboy subtext.—Updated by Raphael Kadushin
