We hate to #humblebrag, but we are delighted—although not surprised—to learn that our agency’s neighborhood, the North Loop, was ranked as one of the 14 Coolest Hipster Neighborhoods in the US by TripAdvisor.
It was 19 years ago when we first fell in love with this neighborhood’s spacious warehouses from the 19th and early 20th centuries and its authentic charm. Back then, the North Loop was just a small part of the Warehouse District, but slowly, people started to take notice and it began to transform.
As a creative agency that puts a lot of weight on staying relevant and ahead of the curve, we can’t help but get a kick out of the fact that our home of almost 20 years is the “newly discovered” hub of hipster-dom. But, we loved it then and we love it now!
The name North Loop once referred to the trolley that served the neighborhood, but now it serves as a reference to the neighborhood’s shape bordering Downtown. The industrial coolness attracted many interesting businesses—Hot Dish included—that has created a unique start-up vibe. But now more than ever, the North Loop is thriving, and we find ourselves surrounded by Instagrammable coffee houses, innovative restaurants, edgy design stores, fashion-forward shops, modern cocktail bars and local breweries.
So, if you’re ever in town and want to stop by Hot Dish, we would love to show you around and show off the cool culture of our office in this progressive neighborhood we are proud to call home.
