The South Loop Lifestyle

Posted by Helaine Cohen on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012 at 4:50pm.

The South Loop is one of Chicago's fastest growing neighborhoods. Unfortunately, because of its industrial past, the area has a reputation of having "nothing to do" which couldn't be farther from the truth.

In the mood for some delicious cuisine? For an evening of fine dining, complete with a selection of over 1,600 wines from around the world, check out Chicago Restaurant Everest. Chef Joho's menu, wine list, and cuisine have received international recognition.

Other well-reviewed restaurants in the South Loop include Gioco, Chicago Firehouse, and Opart Thai House.

Looking for a place to unwind after work or catch the game? Kroll's is your answer. Offering an impressive beer selection and in-house Bingo, don't miss out on $3 pints on Mondays.

Enjoy live music? Reggie's Music Joint has live music every night. A bonus is that they offer free shuttle service to sporting events in the city.

In the mood for a martini? M Lounge is a hidden gem with an extensive drink menu featuring unique martinis such as The Nut Case and Yummy Bear. The lounge also has live music twice a week.

Want to do something unique? Check out Bottle and Bottega, which recently opened in the South Loop. An on-site art director instructs groups to create their own unique project while enjoying a glass of wine.

Need to get bent? Teja's Yoga Studio offers classes ranging from beginner to advanced every day of the week. You can sign up online for your preferred class time.

These are just a few things to do in the South Loop, there are so many more! Get out and enjoy a walk in the neighborhood and I'm sure you'll discover that this beautiful community has so much to offer.
