The village of Burr Ridge is an upscale community conveniently located along both sides of I-55. Only about 15 miles west of downtown Chicago, this western suburb is a perfect example of the "city meets suburbs" but can also be described as where the “city meets rural serenity”. Rolling hills lead to upscale condo and townhome communities, luxurious homes on sprawling multi-acre tree-lined properties and gated subdivisions of multi-million dollar homes. The village has been home to many professional athletes and celebrities over the years as well as those looking for a quiet oasis without a long commute to Chicago.
The Burr Ridge Village Center is an upscale mixed-use lifestyle center featuring luxurious condos and an entertainment and shopping area that is home to a variety of boutiques, restaurants and entertainment experiences, including several clothing boutiques, the luxurious Kohler Waters spa, a charming pet supply store, a spot for coffee, an axe throwing lounge, a painting studio, a virtual golf facility and so much more. A very walkable, friendly neighborhood, the Burr Ridge Village Center also features a beautiful green, where the summer brings an outdoor concert series and family-friendly holiday festivities.
The dining scene in Burr Ridge is vibrant and growing. Current restaurants and experiences in Burr Ridge include the popular Hampton Social, Yolk for breakfast or brunch, Bullseye Axe Throwing, Elevation Golf, Capri Ristorante, Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant, Stix and Stones Wood Fired Pizza, Topaz Café, Wok ‘n’ Fire and Starbucks.
