A Photo tour of the West Loop

We've lived in the West Loop area for several years now. We've lived in lots of different neighborhoods in the city, but have really grown to love this one. Its a bit of a hidden gem, really. It used to be the meatpacking and market district of the city. Many of those businesses still remain, and some are even open to the public now. There are tons of old warehouses in the area that have now been converted into condos and lofts and each day new shops and restaurants are appearing.

e surrounded by Restaurant Row which has some of the hottest restaurants in town as well as lots of clubs.

Its definitely an area in transition and with lots of juxtaposition going on. One minute there's a valet line, the next there's a delivery truck full of vegetables.
