West Loop

Few neighborhoods have undergone a transformation quite like the West Loop. What was once a meatpacking district has quickly become one of the hottest neighborhoods in Chicago – and it’s shown no sign of slowing down.
 
The West Loop is home to a thriving restaurant district on Randolph Street, where you’ll find Michelin-starred favorites and celebrity chefs. But the dining scene doesn’t end there. In fact, diners also enjoy an assortment of nearby restaurants in Greektown and Fulton Market.
 
In addition to being a top destination for foodies, the West Loop has welcomed a mix of boutiques, hotels, and Fortune 500 companies. The neighborhood also has a vibrant nightlife and entertainment scene thanks to an array of hip cocktail bars and the United Center – home of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks.
 
During the summer, the neighborhood is the site of several popular events including the Taste of Randolph, West Loop Art Fest, and Pitchfork Music Festival. Other events include Movies in the Park, which is held at different neighborhood spots including Mary Bartelme, Skinner, and Union parks.
 
With easy access to CTA stops and Metra stations, the West Loop is a convenient place to live. And for those who work in the neighborhood or in The Loop, the commute is about as easy as it gets.
