About Jon Young

Owners Jon & Helene have been in hospitality for over 20 years. Jon is a restaurateur & chef, and Helene is an international flight attendant and spent over a decade as a Chicago Architectural Foundation river cruise docent.

Why Jon Young chose North Side

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.

Adorable Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this big, bright, adorable apartment in Roscoe Village! The location is amazing - right above Volo Wine Bar on Roscoe & N. Damen, on of the main intersections in the neighborhood. (Although despite the central location it was never loud in the apartment.) The balcony is large and overlooks the street - a GREAT place to hang out during the summer. Check in and out was super and easy and the owner, whom we happened to meet downstairs (he owns the wine bar) was very friendly and helpful.

The place is clean and comfy, well stocked and decorated. The kitchen is small but well equipped for cooking (although I don't know why anyone would want to cook with all the great restaurants within walking distance). The Queen bed was quite comfortable and the pullout couch was fine for my son.

This is a very family friendly, quiet but fun neighborhood. The public transportation is great, although we did rent a car. Street parking is easy to find within a block of the apartment.

Whatever brings you to Chicago, you will feel like home at this apartment. I know we will be staying there again!

Great flat. Great food. Great location. Great people.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit. Love everything about this place. Anything I needed Jon was on it. We came for our 20th anniversary to see U2 at soldier field. Stayed several nights before just because we wanted to enjoy Volo ( restaurant below) and the neighborhood. Some great brunch places across street too. We will be sending my in laws over for a visit too. Big thanks to Jon and his team!!

Roscoe

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place. Spacious, great deck, well furnished. Quiet despite location above restaurant/bar. Super-cool neighborhood with tons of food/drink, walking distance from Wrigley. Owner was super-responsive to questions and extremely helpful with recommendations. His restaurant across the street is definitely worth your while - outstanding comfort food with hip retro decor.

Three day weekend

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 8 yo daughter, and I all enjoyed our short stay in the apartment. Excellent location and above a wine bar to boot! The neighborhood was great, with plenty of interesting dining options but also not a crazy late night party scene (for which we were thankful). The metro stop was a straight shot only a few short blocks away with easy and quick access to downtown. Also loved the bookstore down the street. We'd definitely stay there again.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for four nights with three friends for a girls' getaway. The unit has everything needed for a great little holiday! Well equipped, comfortable and awesome location in Roscoe Village. The owners' two restaurants both offer excellent food and top notch service and other establishments in the neighbourhood offer lots of variety.

Nice Stay in Roscoe Village

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a nice visit as we moved her into Northwestern. This was our first stay in the penthouse loft and it was very nice. We spent some nice time on the loving deck overlooking Roscoe on some lovely September evenings. Nice kitchen and furnishings.

We also had another killer breakfast at Kitsch'n on Roscoe. Those are the best hash browns I've every had!

Parking is pretty easy on the side streets. We had no troubles. It was about a 30 min ride to Evanston and the traffic wasn't too bad.
