Eat, Shop & Chill: Three Stops to Make in Beverly

This South Side neighborhood is known for its grandeur and architecture. Beverly is the backdrop for historic Catholic parishes and home to multiple designs by the famed architect - Frank Lloyd Wright. Despite the opulent structures and history, Beverly is relaxed, family-oriented, and diverse. The Beverly neighborhood hosts the South Side Irish Parade in March and multiple summer activities. However, you can explore Beverly any time of the year at these three spots!


Cure your craving for Italian food in Beverly at Franconello Italian Restaurant. Whether you have a hankering for gnocchi or a N.Y. strip steak, Franconello has a large menu with a variety of dishes. They also have a full bar, so you can get the perfect cocktail to pair with your meal. 


Since 1967, Beverly Records has been a go-to spot for music lovers. If you are a music purist and still love the nostalgic vibes of vinyl, this is where you can find records. Beverly Records even has karaoke music for all of the vocalist (and wannabe rockstars). Stop in and thumb through their collection. You may be surprised with what you find!


The Beverly Art Center is a neighborhood gem. The 40,000 square foot center has a 400-seat theatre where you can see plays, dance productions, and musical performances. The center also hosts a variety of activities for the community, including classes for filmmaking, dance, visual arts and more. They are constantly hosting events and a rotating art display in their gallery, so swing by when in the neighborhood.
