South Loop Neighborhood
Chicago’s South Loop Neighborhood
One quick drive up Roosevelt and it’s clear that the South Loop is becoming a rival to its Northern neighborhood counterparts and fast. What used to be an industrial no-man’s land only taking name to McCormick Place has quickly become a mecca for reasonably priced housing, breathtaking city and lake views and a neighborhood where locals want to be seen. South Loop has held on to its early history, containing the Jazz thrills new and old like Jazz Showcase, M Lounge and Velvet Lounge, bringing locals in by the dozens.
After having risen from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871, the South Loop has transformed into one of Chicago’s most up and coming neighborhood. South Loop is home to China Town, Little Italy, Museum Park and University Village making it the most diverse neighborhood in the city. Walking up and down the streets you’ll encounter students, professionals and families walking beside you as well as see historical sites like John Glessner House on 18th and new high rise developments already thriving. All this along with the world famous Soldier Field and football Sunday’s and this is the new neighborhood for the weekends.
