About UrbanMatter

UrbanMatter, Inc. is a Chicago-based digital media platform that launched in early 2015 with the goal of being the city’s best source for local news. Thanks to our tens of thousands of devoted followers and our ever-growing online voice, it has become one of the fastest growing media companies around.


UrbanMatter is centric to the 77 neighborhoods, as we bring together both our own personal opinions and the sentiments of locals who are paying attention. Our team of writers produces quality content that gives our readers the inside scoop to everything going down in Chi-town and we pride ourselves on being the number-one source of news for events, entertainment, restaurants, and bars.

If you need to get the word out about your brand or event, UrbanMatter is the solution. We specialize in promoting your event to our dedicated followers through custom editorials, social media, and branded advertisement. And, to make advertising with us as seamless as possible, we offer the lowest rates in the business. 


Just when you thought city living couldn’t get any easier than this, we started on our newest endeavor. The UrbanMatter mobile app gives Chicago natives the power to rate, review, and search every establishment in town based on what matters to them. By franchising local reviews from restaurants and bars all over the city, the UrbanMatter app is the first of its kind to combine a map-based interface with real-time reviews and upcoming events.

At UrbanMatter, U Matter. And life’s too short to be out of the loop.
