While the warehouse lofts in Peoria’s Warehouse District have helped create commerce and attract great restaurants and businesses today, since its settlement, Peoria has had a bustling industry at its epicenter, but none quite as bustling as brewing and distilling. Between 1837 and 1919 Peoria was home to over 24 breweries and a whopping 73 distilleries! And thus earning the well deserved name of the ‘Whiskey Capital of The World!’
Today, there are still great marks of Peoria’s vibrant brewing and distilling history with distilleries like Blackband, and breweries like The Bearded Owl, in addition to fantastic restaurants like Thyme and Sugar, bars like 8 Bit and Kellher’s, fitness centers like First Ascent, cafes like Zion Coffee, and incredible shopping like Urban Artifacts and Rambler.
All of these great establishments contribute to carrying on the legacy of Peoria’s historic Warehouse District and make the Winkler Warehouses your ideal destination not just for loft living, but urban living with all of the listed business within a 5 minute walk.
With furnished and non-furnished apartments, short-term and long-term leasing options, between Winkler Lofts and Winkler Place, you’re sure to find an amazing home!
