Bright lights, big city on West Montrose Avenue in Ravenswood

West Montrose Avenue between North Damen and North Ashland in the Ravenswood neighborhood has a nice little nightlife scene.  

Many restaurants, bars and shops cluster around the Montrose CTA Brown Line stop providing convenient street life for local residents and easy access for those coming into the neighborhood.

 After a town house showing in Lakeview last Tuesday night, I stopped off to visit my friend at Scot's Bar, sort of an institution now on Montrose. Nearby Troquet's patio was busy.

Scot's is a fun, friendly little neighborhood bar.

Of course there is the very popular Fountainhead restaurant and bar on the corner of Montrose and Damen. The roof deck garden is always hoping.... the whole place is usually busy and has great energy.

Glen's Diner "all you can eat crab" night is on Tuesdays.  The place was happening.

Even Margie's Candies was doing brisk business and had a full patio at 9:00 PM when I was heading home.

Check out this video of a town house we sold for a client nearby the Montrose strip at 4554 North Paulina.
