Location

Oak Street is in Chicago's Gold Coast. It runs from 138 East to 648 West in the Near North Side. It ends without crossing the North Branch of the Chicago River. West of the river, the street changes to Augusta Boulevard. Its eastern end is Michigan Avenue. At this intersection Oak Street becomes East Lake Shore Drive. Two blocks east of this end are famed North Lake Shore Drive, Lakefront Trail, and Oak Street Beach.

Points of interest

Oak Street is Chicago's most prestigious shopping street. Oak Street has a mix of international couture houses, American luxury brands, and local boutiques, and is in close proximity to famed Michigan Avenue and Rush Street.

Oak Street has continued to expand in recent years as international brands have chosen this street over Michigan Avenue, although it is perceived as an extension, if not part, of the retail spaces, with new construction mirroring the existing aesthetics of the neighborhood.
