West Loop

The vibrant neighborhood of West Loop never fails to impress with its bevy of must-try eateries.

Welcome to West Loop

A forward-thinking foodie paradise abounding in stunningly renovated historic architecture and up-and-coming creators

Nestled west of the Chicago River, the vibrant neighborhood of West Loop never fails to impress with its bevy of must-try eateries and effortlessly chic urbanites. What was once a stoic meatpacking district blossomed into one of Chicago’s hottest communities as the industrial warehouses and former factories were revamped into an urban paradise of renovated lofts, condos, gallery spaces, boutiques, and unparalleled dining venues. 
Completely distinct, West Loop marries together the dynamism of urban living with a newly burgeoning, family-friendly vibe. West Loop is thriving with its multifaceted approach to community, known as a provider of gourmet goods, a growing base for major tech companies, and a nightlife hotspot in the city. The neighborhood is also bisected by I-90 and I-295, making it an ideal set-up for commuters. 
Newly built condos and high-rises have sprung up to accommodate the growing population of professionals and families, standing in line with the refurbished studios and artists’ apartments. Spacious townhomes and apartments are among the new construction, and all residential real estate is quick to sell thanks to the neighborhood’s rapid development.

Local Lifestyle

Whether it’s finding your creative flow in the exposed-brick walls of a renovated warehouse loft, diving into your inner gastronome by exploring the ever-changing dining in the area, or kicking it back at a late-night music lounge, West Loop calls to those searching for excitement and adventure — a way to carve their own niche in the world. A friendly culture keeps the atmosphere relaxed, even amidst the constant thrall of activity.

Dining, Entertainment, Shopping

The animated atmosphere of West Loop is due in large part to the abundance of shops and restaurants lining its well-kept streets, where open-air seating, patios, and artful displays spill out onto the sidewalk. Independent shops like Tribeca Boutique curate their selection of women’s fashion from only the finest designers in the nation, well-suited to anyone with contemporary tastes. BLVDier is the expert when it comes to suit coats, jackets, and men’s formal fashion, a staple for any sharp-dressed person.
Then, of course, is the dining, which has enough variety to offer hungry visitors a new restaurant every night. Mornings can start off with a sensational sip of fresh coffee at any number of local cafes, including La Colombe, a caffeine haven serving its own coffee roasts. Girl & the Goat serves more than just mouthwatering, seasonal fare. Class and impeccable ambiance come free with the meal, too, thanks to the open dining room and rustic interior. 
As a diner-style bar and restaurant, Au Cheval mixes up its menu with everything from classic burgers and egg sandwiches to foie gras and chopped chicken liver. When in need of a sweet treat to end the day, locals often recommend heading to BomboBar, whose offerings include summertime gelato shakes and tourist-favorite “hotter chocolates,” in the winter.

Things to Do

West Loop is rich in resplendent spaces and unique experiences. The Randolph Street Market, for example, is the city’s only year-round indoor market, world-famous for its assortment of antiques, global goods, art, wine, artisanal cocktails, and endless other pop-up vendors. 
Spend a night you won’t soon forget by stepping into the fantasy ambiance of City Winery, a glowing and airy venue where one can sip award-winning wine blends in a lush garden, grab a meal at the on-site Mediterranean restaurant, or attend a live music show. Embrace your inner curiosity by visiting the WNDR Museum, a fascinating collection of sensory-driven, contemporary art that elicits true wonder from visitors. 
Sports enthusiast? The famed Chicago Bulls take to the court at the nearby United Center, where NBA fans can watch athletes compete. The arena has also hosted The Stanley Cup, NCAA tournaments, rodeos, and concerts from famous performers like Adele, Guns N Roses, Prince, U2, and Lady Gaga.
