Just across the river lies a food lover’s paradise known affectionately as the West Loop. Nestled between downtown and the United Center (home of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks), this neighborhood features “Restaurant Row,” with some of the best dining in the city.
Once the meat-packing district, the West Loop exposes guests the world’s cuisines and provides countless options for after-dinner cocktail lounges and sports bars. The Chicago French Market cannot be missed when exploring the West Loop. Home to Chicago’s only indoor marketplace open year-round, the French Market will not only inspire your taste buds, but also help you feel like a local.
For a treat, take the water taxi to and from this trendy neighborhood while enjoying the sights and sounds of the famous backward-flowing Chicago River.
