The Loop is a bustling 6-block area on Delmar Boulevard in west St Louis, close to the University area . It has many fun speciality shops, great restaurants and coffee shops. Perhaps the most well-known is Blueberry Hill, a restaurant and music club, inspired by Chuck Berry’s catchy song of the same name. One of the most unusual is probably Cheese-ology, the only place in St Louis where you can find more than a dozen different types of mac ‘n cheese!
The Loop is also famous for the St Louis Walk-of-Fame, which honors famous folk from St Louis with brass stars and information plaques set in the sidewalks.
When we were there last week we found some really fascinating street sculptures of mannequin-type female figures. We dubbed them “Ladies of The Loop”. What fun.
