Set within West Loop just outside of downtown, this former meatpacking district has undergone rapid restoration over the past 20 years. Now home to HQs for tech giants like Google, this neighborhood is one of the most popular areas in the city for up-and-coming development that aims to blend the historic industrial charm with new luxuries.


Foodies rejoice over Chicago’s famous Restaurant Row. Lining W Randolph Street, you’ll find inventive eateries like Girl & the Goat, along with specialty coffee roasters (hello Sawada Coffee), breweries, and wine bars, all ranging from $ to $$$$.

There’s no shortage of boutique hotels in the area, which means you’ll have easy access to a variety of accompanying rooftop lounges and fancy cocktail spots. Nobu Chicago and The Hoxton are two popular choices that satisfy the essentials: Instagrammable backdrops and great food and drinks. If luxe hotels aren’t your scene, hit up the House of Vans to catch live performances from your favorite indie bands and let loose.

Getting to and from the West Loop is a breeze. The green and pink CTA lines are easily accessible, along with quick access to I-90 if you’d rather take your car.


With the rapid expansion of the neighborhood, rent in Fulton Market has consistently increased throughout the past decade. Most apartments in the area have a unique, artistic style—many of the warehouses have been converted into residential units to accommodate the influx of renters. There’s a healthy mix of luxe high rises and boutique-style properties to suit a range of budgets.
