Neighborhood to the World
University City, or U. City, as it is affectionately called, is also known as Neighborhood to the World. And with good reason. This vibrant and distinguished community boasts a diverse population of engaged citizens who cherish the place they call home. Listed as one of the 10 Great Streets in America by the American Planning Association, the widely popular and historic Delmar Loop is a world-renowned business and entertainment center -- a top destination for visitors and locals alike. U. City is also a top pick for home buyers seeking affordable housing combined with cultural interest, top-notch municipal services, and overall good value.
The real estate market is in full swing in U. City. There are many affordable properties for sale, from small bungalows to multi-families to larger homes that fit the needs of growing families. There are numerous online property search sites, where you'll discover useful information to assist in finding your new home.
Creativity abounds in The Delmar Loop. A number of arts organizations offer great opportunities to see and do. For example, the long-standing Compônere Gallery exhibits unique works by regional artists, Craft Alliance Center of Art and Design hosts beautiful exhibitions and also schedules workshops and classes in many craft forms, and the renowned COCA engages the entire community with outstanding programs and performances for all ages to enjoy.
The Loop on Delmar Boulevard offers a variety of eateries including international cuisine, such as Lebanese food Al-Tarboush Deli, Japanese delights at Blue Ocean Sushi, and our all-American favorites, you guessed it, hamburgers and fries at the legendary Blueberry Hill -- which, by the way, also serves up music, games, and an amazing collection of vintage collections. Spend the day and evening at this famous Walk of Fame locale. Also, there's music and food at Cicero's, free karaoke at The Elvis Room, world-class performances at The Pageant, and something just for teens at Stitchers Storefront Studio.
Each year in January, the popular Loop Ice Carnival is a wonderful event for the whole family. The neighborhood comes alive with ice sculptures, a frozen slide, magicians, jugglers, and more! The U. City community, along with visitors from around the entire St. Louis metropolitan region, get together to brave the cold and make lasting memories in the middle of winter on Delmar.
What else is there to delight in The Loop? Fascinating films from around the world are featured at the historic Tivoli Theatre. The Tivoli has for decades welcomed loyal and appreciative movie-goers who savor food for thought at each screening. Also, The Loop boasts vintage and new clothing shops, gift boutiques, hair salons and beauty bars, a public library, financial and legal services, and so much more.
