The Delmar Loop, originally named after the “loop” that the streetcars took to bring people to the area, was named one of the 10 Great Streets in America. It is a vibrant entertainment, restaurant, and shopping district in University City. Washington University, located nearby, has a heavy influence here; many of the students live, eat, and socialize on the Delmar Loop. The neighborhood offers some of the city’s most popular culinary hot spots.
