There are a bunch of great neighborhoods in Downtown Chicago to grab a quick drink,but none are quite like the city’s West Loop neighborhood. Well known for both food and drink,the West Loop is also home to many corporate offices and furnished apartments,making the area’s bars and restaurants busy all the time. Here are some of our favorite spots to grab a quick drink in the West Loop.
The Press Room
Just steps from short term rentals is The Press Room,a hidden gem known for their solid wine list and impeccable taste in music.
Chicago’s French Market
Food Halls are super common these days in River North and Streeterville,but before these places existed,Chicago’s French Market was the king of food halls in the city. Still one of the best spots to eat in the West Loop,the French Market continues to improve upon a recipe that it created several years ago.
Known more for their prowess as a fine dining establishment,Sepia,located near several business apartments,also has a killer cocktail menu for those looking for a quick drink in the neighborhood. The best part? Happy hour features drinks and snacks for only $7.
Not only is Lone Wolf centrally located and a great place to wait for a seat at the nearby Au Cheval,this bar features a fantastic beer list and even better happy hour food lineup. If you live in any of the area’s temporary housing units,be sure to stop by Lone Wolf for a pre-dinner beer.
Green St. Meats
Green St. Meats is not only one of the best places to get BBQ in the Midwest (seriously),it also boasts a full service bar that you can hit up while you’re in what is sure to be a long line. We recommend the Lone Star for that classic Texas BBQ combination.
