A Look Into the History of Chicago’s Loop Neighborhood
It is fitting that the Loop is named for a transportation system – the history of the neighborhood is one of transportation, commerce, and power. Centrally located, the Loop was the transportation hub of a city known for being a transportation hub. Daylight Savings Time was standardized here, making a uniform railroad timetable possible. Union Station, built in 1925 to replace an 1881 station, saw more than 3.377 million passengers in 2014.
The Loop is also a business center, and center of city and county government. The Richard J Daley center (featured in the finale of The Blues Brothers) houses Cook County and Chicago government offices. State offices are found in the State of Illinois building and the Thompson Center. Federal offices are found in the Mies Van der Rohe designed Federal Plaza.
Dining and Nightlife Options In Chicago’s Loop
Where to begin? The options are, almost literally, endless. Some reside360 dining favorites include the historic Berghoff restaurant, The Italian Village, Monk’s Pub (try the bison burger!), and English-themed Elephant and Castle (bangers and mash are incredible).
Once the need for feed is satisfied, head out for some drinks and entertainment in the heart of the city. Choice spots to see and be seen include ROOF on the Wit, blues bar Buddy Guy’s Legends, and Cindy’s at the newly-renovated Chicago Athletic Association.
Loop Culture, Shopping, and Lifestyle
Also far too much to name. Some of the cultural high points include the Art Institute of Chicago, Joffrey Ballet and Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Willis Tower, Fine Arts Building, and Grant Park (including Buckingham Fountain).
Shopping is also a major Loop pastime, with the continuing expansion of Block 37 mall, the 116 year old Central Camera Co., and the usual collection of big-name chains, anchored by Macy's, located in the former Marshall Field and Company Building, built in 1892.
The lifestyle in the Loop is fast-paced and often frenetic. The business of the city and world never end, as one look at the crowd for lunch at Cellars Market, the basement cafeteria in the Chicago Board of Trade (ignore the menu, the fish sandwich is what everyone is there for) will reveal. People talk fast, walk fast, and think fast. To keep up the pace, a stop for coffee at Intelligentsia’s Monadnock Coffee Bar, in the historic Monadnock Building.
The Loop is the heart of Chicago, and worth taking time to explore thoroughly.
