Uptown is a neighborhood rich in history and continues to be an entertainment, retail and dining destination for locals and tourists alike.

“We are honored to add Uptown United to our list of clients in 2018” says David Zapata, president of Zapwater Communications. “It is a cornerstone Chicago community with a dense history and electrifying revival. Our expertise in working with local SSAs, Chambers of Commerce and neighborhoods will help to bring much deserved awareness and attention to Uptown.”
