The luxury apartments in the Loop won’t let you down. Since this part of the city is dense, your tours of apartments in the Loop will have you going up, up up – hundreds of feet into the Chicago skyline. Imagine living in an apartment unit that’s not just modern, but boasts beautiful design, tech-savvy features and amenities that make apartment life the best life!

Looking for a studio apartment in the Loop? We know just which ones have the extra closet space you’ll covet. Or maybe you’re serious about fitness and are wondering which apartment building in the Loop has the best gym. No matter what’s on your list of apartment must-haves, our agents will work tirelessly to find you the perfect place.

The Food Scene

Rent in the Loop, and the neighborhood’s awesome restaurants will become your favorite hangouts.

The Dearborn is an incredible restaurant if you are looking for all-day dining. The food is consistently great. It’s upscale enough for a special occasion but has a casual vibe that makes you feel right at home. Diners flock here for their bone marrow, but their brunch is a total knockout too.

For those days you need a fast bite, the takeout options will have you wanting for nothing! For mouth-watering fried chicken try Jollibee in the south part of the Loop. If you’re in the mood for a Chicago beef sandwich or Chicago-style hot dog, zip over to Jimmy’s Gyros and Grill. Open for lunch to well-past midnight, Jimmy’s is an awesome spot for Chicago classics on the cheap.

Upscale dining in the Loop is easy to find when you head north along the banks of the Chicago River. Prime and Provisions, Catch 35 and Ocean Prime all serve up steak and seafood with impeccable service.

And remember – one advantage of renting an apartment in the Loop is that you’re surrounded by other neighborhoods that have so much to offer. Cross the river into River North and behold, some of the best dining options in Chicago! Restaurant-haven West Loop is a walkable option too.

Museums, Theater, and More Entertainment

Ready to have a little fun? Step out of your apartment building in the Loop and enjoy all there is to do.

If you’re an art buff, a membership to the Art Institute of Chicago will be a well-loved investment. Other niche museums, like the American Writers Museum, the Design Museum of Chicago, Chicago Architectural Center and the Pritzker Military Museum are hidden gems you must check out too.

The Loop is flush with fine arts, music and entertainment as well. Treat yourself to a Broadway show at the CIBC Theatre, or catch the famed Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Nearby Goodman Theatre is another excellent option for live theater in the Loop. And then there’s the iconic Chicago Theatre, which books everything from comedy superstars to popular musical acts. Catching your favorite band here most definitely belongs on your bucket list.

And then of course, there’s the Loop’s most popular tourist attractions like Skydeck Chicago atop the Willis Tower and Cloud Gate (aka The Bean) in Millenium Park. Even if you’re a local, taking in Chicago’s most famous landmarks makes for a fun day.

Without a doubt, there is always something to do when you live in or visit the Loop. For more ideas, visit the Chicago Loop Alliance’s website. They do a wonderful job promoting all this vibrant neighborhood has to offer.

Shopping in The Loop

So – we’ve covered food and entertainment in the Loop, now let’s talk shopping. Simply put, it’s good! The Magnificent Mile, along Michigan Avenue, cuts right through the Loop and has practically every national brand store you could wish for. Over on State Street, check out the former Marshall Field’s (now Macy’s) and get ready to be wowed by the grandeur of the building.

Living in the Loop is also super convenient, with no fewer than 6 neighborhood Walgreens and 5 CVS locations within its borders. Access to groceries in this part of town has been a challenge for renters, but new options are popping up! There is a Mariano’s just a squeak outside the neighborhood in nearby Lakeshore East, just north of Millennium Park. It’s a fantastic grocery store for your big shopping trips; the deli and produce selection is out of this world! For your quick grocery needs, a Target – with a grocery department – is located right in the center of the Loop.

Fun Fact

The world’s first skyscraper – The Home Insurance Building – stood in the Loop. Completed in 1885, it stood a remarkable ten stories – an unprecedented height for its era. Demolished in 1931 to make way for newer development, it pushed the boundaries of architectural design.

The Loop’s Park and Recreation Options

This is where it gets really good! Imagine living in an urban oasis, but having green space, lakeshore, parks and trails just blocks away. The east border of the Loop is made up of the Lake Michigan shoreline, and it’s full of space to run, play and rejuvenate.

The most famous park in the Loop is Millennium Park. Home to monuments like Cloud Gate and Crown Fountain, it’s the best spot in Chicago to people-watch. Lurie Garden – a 5-acre botanical garden – is also located here and provides a peaceful respite from the pace of the city. Just steps east, explore Maggie Daley Park’s incredible playground, ice skating ribbon, tennis courts and ample green space.

Just south of Millennium Park is another of Chicago’s best parks – Grant Park. Straddling the Loop and the South Loop neighborhoods, it holds 313 acres of space to catch a concert, play a pick-up game or snap picture-perfect scenes of downtown.

If you’re going to rent a dog-friendly apartment, the Loop is a surprisingly great place to be. Nearly every luxury apartment welcomes pets with open arms, catering to them with onsite dog runs and spas. When you and your pup need some extra fresh air, take to the streets and head to the nearby Lakeshore East Dog Park. Practically an amusement park for dogs, this downtown Chicago dog park is the best place to meet up with other dog owners for a little fun.

A Plethora of Public Transit Options

If you need to get around downtown Chicago (and beyond), this is the neighborhood to live in! In fact, it’s named after the famous elevated train tracks that form a loop in the center of the neighborhood.

Hop on the CTA train at one of the Loop’s 19 stations and make your way to every corner of Chicago. The Loop also has two Metra train stations, with access to lines that’ll take you to Chicago’s southern suburbs.
