Over 50% of the West Loop apartments for rent listed on Domu were 2 bedroom and about one-third were 1 bedroom apartments.
Greek Town is here too and you know you're in the West Loop when you smell the rich scent of chocolate wafting from the Blommer Chocolate Factory which is across from K Station, and just east of Fulton Market. The West Loop features a truly remarkable mixture of new and old buildings, an exciting dining scene featuring some of the best restaurants and chefs in the city, and nightlife options from dive bars to high-end cocktail lounges that give residents plenty of possibilities for where to take their night. West Loop apartments place renters only a few blocks from the Chicago Loop, which simplifies commuting. The United Center is just to the west at Damen Ave. The 'L' Green line runs along Lake Street, but makes only one stop in the neighborhood. Buses running along Madison and Jackson are the most reliable source of public transportation. Access the 90/94 Kennedy Expressway, Dan Ryan Expressway and Eisenhower Expressway is ideal as is the from the West Loop.

Dining in the West Loop
West Loop apartments are in the vicinity of Greek Town. Mediterranean dining options along Halsted Street are numerous and range from classic Chicago institutions that have been in place for generations, like Greek Islands, to more recent additions. Haymarket Pub & Brewery takes its name from the erstwhile farmers’ trading post, and the site of an infamous riot in the spring of 1886, and serves up modern gastro-pub fare alongside freshly brewed ales.
Nightlife in the West Loop
The West Loop is home to new boutique hotels, and one that’s been on the scene the longest (relatively speaking) is Soho House Chicago. Their swanky cocktail lounge and bar is a favorite among locals as a starting point for a night out on the West Loop, or as a destination unto itself.
Coffee in the West Loop
Chain coffee dispensers La Colombe and Starbucks are represented in the West Loop, but locals who are looking to splash out with a side of opulent donuts or desserts flock to Bombobar. Their sugar-infused creations are as over-the-top as their bombastic name suggests. Bring a friend to share some of the sweet delicacies or just sit and observe the scene from their hopping outdoor seating area.
