West Loop Reviews
West Loop is an up and coming Chicago neighborhood, located just across the river from the central Loop. It has great dining and night life options, with more being added all the time. Apartments / housing is expensive but good deals can still be found in the surrounding neighborhoods. The vibe of West Loop housing is the "loft" style - exposed brick, timber, and warehouse elements - due to the industrial past of the neighborhood.
Awesome neighborhood in downtown. One of the safest and richest part of Chicago. There is nice restaurants and skyscrapers. I love it here!
Great neighborhood for easy access to award-winning restaurants and to many offices downtown. While it doesn't have the neighborhood feel of a Lincoln Park, it's great for urbanites!
