Those living in West Loop all agree: West Loop is the best Loop in Chicago. From the delicious options for dining in to the bustling bar scene and close-knit neighborhood vibe, we couldn’t be happier to have set up a clinic in this fun area.
Below is a short list of some of the best living, eating and entertainment spots in the West Loop. Did we forget something? Let us know on Twitter @MedSpring.
- K2 Apartments is the place to choose if you’re looking for a dog-friendly living space. Just this past fall, they opened the city’s largest dog park which spans half an acre.
- The luxury apartments at Echelon At K Station sit between N Desplaines and Kinzie St. If you’re looking for a social, pet friendly and luxury apartment, K Station is perfect!
- Presidential Towers is another solid option for living in the West Loop. It’s located right between Madison and Monroe and is noted as being great for “twenty somethings”.”
- Pizza: you can’t go wrong with build-your-own-pizzas at Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza or a cheap date night at Pizzeria Del Mercato (offers BYOB!)
- Sushi: three top contenders include Butterfly Sushi Bar which offers BYOB, dine-in, take out or delivery, Sushi Dokku which also does take out or delivery and has a rave-worthy Hot Dasiy roll. A final option in the West Loop area is Momotaro on Lake Street, which was voted best new restaurant of the year in Chicago Magazine.
- Cafés: Nohea Café has free Wi-Fi and some of the best food you’ll have at a coffee shop in town. Watch out though, they close at 5 pm.
- Learn to brew your own beer at Brew and Grow on Morgan Street
- Swing by Randolph Street Market Festival, which is a (nearly) monthly festival packed with 200+ vendors selling everything from clothes, jewelry and furniture to unique foods and more.
- Mary Bartelme Park is kid and dog friendly, a great way to spend a beautiful Saturday afternoon
- Get active at the Brooklyn Boulders rock climbing gym on Morgan at Monroe
- For a contemporary, creative experience, swing by on Aspect Ratio on Peoria between Madison and Randolph and view their video art
