River North Nightlife in Chicago

If you are looking to go out and make a night of it, River North is where you want to go! This great neighborhood is full of galleries to explore during the day, then becomes lively with swanky, casual, and unique bars. If you like bars where there is always a happening scene, check out the business-classy Bull & Bear, the late-night hangout, two-story bar and lounge Rockit Bar & Grill, which is complete with a dance floor. Or, get dancing at SushiSamba Rio, which offers live music, a fun layout, and a great drink menu. For a classy and upscale evening, sip on champagne to live jazz music at Pops for Champagne, or try some of the city's best cocktails at the spacious Suite Lounge, or admire the 60-foot waterfall, while saddling up to the liquor bar at Stone Lotus, often frequented by celebrities. If you are interested in quality hotel bars, enjoy the view at Vertigo Sky Lounge at the Dana Hotel, relax in the comfy couches of Le Bar in the lobby of Hotel Sofitel, or get cozy by the fire in the sophisticated Bar at The Peninsula. And, if you just want to kick back and not worry about what you are wearing, you will love the local hangout, Old Town Ale House.
