On the west bank of the Chicago River's South Branch is the area known as River West. It is part of the West Loop community. Bordered by Division, Grand, and the Kennedy Expressway (Routes 90/94), it rubs elbows with trendy Wicker Park and artistic River North.
Once a thriving market area, River West still boasts many charming traditional family-owned restaurants, bakeries, and flower and produce stands. Today, it is being rediscovered by a new generation of city-dwellers.
What to do in River West
As Wicker Park, River North, Little Italy, Greek Town and the Loop are all just a few blocks away River West residents enjoy unparalleled access to some of the most exciting neighborhoods and districts in Chicago.
On its own, it has many of the city's finer restaurants and cafés, particularly along Randolph Street where many old warehouses and markets have been transformed into premier dining destinations. River West is a place where art galleries live inside converted loft spaces, and many performance artists promote and teach their trades in unexpectedly large studios.
Plus, River West boasts the United Center stadium, home of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks and a venue for some of the world's most popular musicians and entertainers. Television diva Oprah Winfrey chose River West as the home for her Harpo Studios.
River West's Distinctive Housing
Considered a less expensive option to River North, River West offers dozens of new office and residential loft conversions, many renovated two- and three-flats, newly constructed townhomes, and brand-new loft communities rising from old warehouses and factories.
