Chicago’s hottest neighborhood has exploded from a formerly unwelcome industrial area into the area where everyone wants to be - from major corporations like McDonald’s and Google, to the trendiest restaurants in the city, to individuals and families who like the convenience of living close to downtown with a different feel from the corporate high-rises that line the Loop. Where else in the city can you find decades-old Italian groceries and butchers side by side with barbershops with speakeasies behind them?

West Loop, Chicago
A longtime domain of family-owned meatpacking businesses, the West Loop has become a serious foodie’s fantasy in recent years – and it’s shown no sign of slowing down.
The West Loop was a downtrodden neighborhood for much of the 20th century before it became home to the United Center, then host to the Democratic National Convention in 1996. Thus began its dramatic transformation.
The land between The Loop and the home of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks filled rapidly with trendy loft conversions, new construction condos, art galleries, boutiques, nightclubs and dozens of new restaurants. The Randolph Street Market continues to be a draw with more than 200 vendors.
The West Loop is home to a thriving restaurant district on Randolph Street, offering up everything from sushi to haute cuisine. Some of the city’s finest restaurants and celebrity chefs can be found on Randolph, but the restaurant scene doesn’t end there. In fact, diners also enjoy an assortment of eateries in Greektown and Fulton Market.
West Loop’s hotspot reputation has attracted everything from residential development and boutique hotels to major corporations including Google and the new McDonald’s headquarters.
