Testimonials

“Awesome crew they [Bernard Movers] sent out. They moved me from a third floor apartment to my storage. They were quick and handled all my things with care.”

-Marvin L.

 

“I recommend Bernard Movers for anyone. I was given only three weeks to move from Chicago to New York [to] start my new job and Bernard Movers took a lot of stress out of this relocation experience … I had my two-bedroom apartment packed and onto the truck within three hours, then everything moved and unpacked neatly into my new place in New York after two days.”

Neighborhood Highlight: Logan Square

Logan Square Neighborhood

Unlike other metropolitans, Chicago is a city of neighborhoods—unique areas with personality, community spirit and features that make it feel like home. Some of Chicago’s neighborhoods are well known throughout the city for their unique attributes, and even out-of-state visitors recognize some of them. Lincoln Park boasts fantastic shopping and nightlife. Hyde Park is known for its beautiful boulevards and culture. Bucktown is home to a creative, young crowd. Then there’s Logan Square—a relatively young neighborhood growing in popularity.

Earlier this year, Logan Square was named as one of the hottest neighborhoods in 2013 by Redfin. Already known for its prominent Latin influences and artists’ community, the neighborhood’s appeal continues to increase among hipsters, artists, 30-somethings and entrepreneurs.

Artists have long flocked to Logan Square; just read the recent Chicago Reader article titled “The migration of the hipster,” which details the history of hipsters and artists throughout the city. Today, Logan Square’s artistic community is sought after and inspiring. Nonprofits such as I AM Logan Square, South Logan Arts Coalition and the Logan Square Chamber of Arts focus on further cultivating the booming community through projects, festivals and events. Logan Square’s annual Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival also draws a city-wide crowd to experience artists, musicians and more for a weekend.

Besides Logan Square’s pulsing art community, the neighborhood also supports a burgeoning foodie movement. Already known for its Latin food, Michelin-rated Longman & Eagle and renowned Lula Cafe, Logan Square has added to its food and bar repertoire in recent years. Visitors from far and wide stop by the gin joint Scofflaw, the craft cocktail bar Billy Sunday and fried chicken sensation Parson’s Chicken and Fish. The neighborhood’s taste for craft cocktails and tasty eats continues as the food and drink rumors continue to spread about what’s next for the area.

In addition to a nightlife that rivals Wicker Park and Wrigleyville, Logan Square also has a neighborly, at-home feel. Every Sunday, families descend on the Farmers Market. Wednesdays you may catch young and old camped out in front of the Comfort Station for an evening movie. And The 606 park project is spurring new excitement as construction begins on the 2.7-mile, multi-use recreational trail that borders the south side of the neighborhood.

Interest in investing in neighborhood also extends to the business world. Entrepreneurs and business owners not only choose to invest in Logan Square, but invest in multiple businesses as well. Owner and executive chef Matthias Merges owns both yakitori-inspired Yusho and bar Billy Sunday; Ann Kienzle opened both the toy store Play and gift store Shop 1021 along Milwaukee Avenue; and Esam Hani has owned Logan Square businesses for more than 12 years, including Latin brunch sensation Cafe con Leche (dinner locale D’Noche Restaurant at night), Red Star Liquors and the upcoming The Harding Tavern.

Whether you’re looking for artistic inspiration, a quick bite to eat or a place to start a family, the Chicago neighborhood of Logan Square has something for everyone.

Bernard Movers Sponsors the Tropical Addiction Concert Series at Montrose Harbor

Comments Off on Bernard Movers Sponsors the Tropical Addiction Concert Series at Montrose Harbor

Is there a better place to spend a Chicago summer evening than on the lakefront? Maybe, but we don’t know what that is!

This summer Bernard Movers, your trusted Chicago moving company, is sponsoring the Tropical Addiction concert series at Montrose Harbor. We believe in community support and highlighting the talents of locals as well as small business—and we also believe in the beach.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, The Dock at Montrose Harbor will feature new acts and genres of music and expression for you to experience. Montrose Harbor is located on the northern edge of Lincoln Park at 601 W. Montrose Drive and features one of the most relaxing environments in the city. With the sunset to the west and the lake to the east, there are few better places to enjoy music in the evening. Montrose Beach is also a great place to play volleyball in the sand or get on your boat.

The Tropical Addiction Series is the ultimate event for your summer days to laze and discover new music. Starting at 5 pm, each night is dedicated to different genres of music to brighten up your summer evening including Jazz (Monday), Culture Reggae (Wednesday) and World Dance and Folk (Thursday). We were there for the kick off of Reggae Wednesdays on May 29 and we got some shots of the great time we had there. Our host, Art Bailey, mesmerized the group with a laid back attitude and funny quips as he came in to introduce acts. Bands Rebelu, Selecta Tomas and headliner, Lion Heights, brought energy to the crowd.

Join us next time! Bernard Movers will be there every Wednesday to jam on and get you more info on our moving season.
