Why Jon Young chose Roscoe Village
We have been neighborhood residents for 15 years and have not only enjoyed raising a family while seeing a positive transformation of Chicago during that time, but also of the Roscoe Village neighborhood and its amenities. We own and operate two award-winning and acclaimed restaurants here, and realized we had the ideal setting for a bed & breakfast style vacation rental conveniently located right in the heart of our community.
What makes this Apartment unique
While staying at Sopra Volo (means 'above Volo' in Latin), guests have immediate access to more than a dozen dining options to fit any budget, pretty sidewalk cafes & hidden backyard garden patios, as well as unique independently owned retail shops & boutiques (also a Starbucks on our block housed in a converted former Motorcycle Cafe 'The Ace Cafe'). Within blocks there are family friendly parks, a baseball diamond, public pool, and a park district field house (offering tennis courts & a basketball court), as well as kayaking nearby. The neighborhood is extremely walk-able, upper-middle class and safe, has seen a wave of renovations over the last decade, and just two blocks away there is a 100+ year old Pencil Factory that has been converted to lofts, with original factory-worker row houses still intact located on adjacent blocks. Public transportation is easy from Sopra Volo and includes the Damen bus just steps out the front door (a direct 10 minute ride to the heart of Bucktown & Wicker Park), Chicago's famous 'EL' train at the Paulina stop just three blocks away, plus the Belmont or Addison (direct to Wrigley Field- Home of the Cubs) Street Bus just two blocks away. If you visit us in the summer, Wrigley Field is just a 15-20 minute walk (about a mile and a half) through residential neighborhoods and tree lined streets, filled with 100 year old plus houses. Finally, the guest suite is located directly above our acclaimed wine bar, Volo. It is beautifully designed with an urban chic interior and rustic hidden backyard cabana garden in which we from time to time host weddings. Advance VIP reservations are available to Sopra Volo guests on request. Additionally, the unit is located directly across the street from our celebrated casual brunch spot, Kitsch'n on Roscoe. Decked out in colorful 1970's retro dinette sets, and filled with assorted retro and vintage decor, Kitsch'n has been featured in Bon Apetit Magazine and on $40 a Day with Rachel Ray.

Great place in a great neighborhood
We loved this place - great location - as described in the listing - easy access to everywhere we wanted to be in Chicago.
A wonderful stay in Roscoe Village. The location was absolutely perfect, and delightful to be in such a charming neighborhood away from the city. Loads of restaurants in walking distance. Only drawback were the stairs as we had far too many cases, but couldn’t be helped as we live internationally. We will definitely return!
Clean, comfortable space above a sweet restaurant/wine bar. Had everything we needed. We enjoyed our comped bubbly in a patio cabana, and discounted bfast across the street. Had everything we needed in a cool, walkable area.
Fun loft in a great neighborhood
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was very comfortable and felt quite private for us even though we are in the city and above a venue. The location is great for restaurants, bars, sightseeing and visiting friends. The loft is well equipped and the rooftop deck makes it quite special. We will definitely stay here again when we are back in town.
Wonderfully located space
Well equipped and clean. Access to the loft via circular staircase can be challenging if one has large luggage or a cooler.
If going to Chicago this is perfect place to stay. It’s in perfect location for anything you want to see and such a great friendly neighborhood. Jon was so great to work with and so easy to communicate with. Highly recommend to anyone.
The unit is located within an enjoyable 15-20 minute walk through safe residential neighborhoods to Wrigley Field (easy public transportation is able easily accessible both to Wrigley and downtown). We are blocks away from northside music venues including Shubas & The Beat Kitchen, and an easy taxi/bus/train to The Vic and The Riviera. Roscoe Village is one of Chicago's premier residential neighborhoods often referred to as 'A village within the city' and features dozens of restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques, sidewak cafes, shopping, and family-friendly parks. During the summer months, inexpensive kayak & canoeing rentals are easily accessible on the North Branch of the Chicago River via Clark Park less than a mile from the unit, and Chicago's Bike Share Program 'Divvy' has a location within a 1/2 block from the unit.
