Roosevelt Rd
  • Roosevelt Road’s extensive entertainment history dates as far back as the 1920’s with the opening of the Ritz Theater. Today it is proud home to 3 of our music venues. On Roosevelt Rd you can experience a wide variety of  local and national acts perform. Music enthusiasts have even boasted that you won’t find this kind of abundant talent in any big city strip north of Memphis.

  • Through the decades, the heart of town has always been 22nd Street, more commonly known as Cermak Road. The road is named in honor of Anton J. Cermak, a famous Czech statesman and former mayor of Chicago.

    Berwyn’s Cermak Road is now an eclectic mix of retail establishments, restaurants, and green energy powerhouse Cermak Plaza. Once famous for the now-defunct Spindle, known affectionately as the “car-kabob” featured in the Wayne’s World movie, the shopping center on the southeast corner of Cermak Road & Harlem Avenue has undergone significant façade and parking lot upgrades and added green elements including LED lighting and wind turbines for clean energy.

  • As Berwyn’s walkable city center, the Depot District is known for its mix of independent shops, restaurants and lounges. What you can also find here is a variety of medical services that includes Loyola Medicine |  MacNeal Hospital. Our residents and visitors alike can get a lot done while taking a walk in the Depot District.

  • Ogden Avenue is Berwyn’s stretch of Historic Route 66 – the Mother Road – designed for automobiles when the car was king of American culture. It’s a road so mythical, you may wonder if it still exists, but today you can still get your kicks on Route 66 with plenty of Berwyn entertainment and dining.
