This great taco spot has amazing food, quality service and friendly atmosphere, you’ll have a great time here.

Quartino

Offering up delicious Italian small plates without skimping on the tasted. This bi-level restaurant is always bustling, but check out their happy hour on Wednesdays or Sundays 2-6pm and you get complimentary salumeria with the purchase of an apertivo cocktail.

Tanta Chicago

Here they marry Chinese, Japanese, Italian, and Spanish ingredients and techniques to put together the restaurant’s Peruvian plates, which celebrate the diverse landscape of the South American country.

The Berkshire Room is the perfect start to an evening in River North.  Their classic cocktails with a twist get your palate going for an evening ahead.  The most impressive thing about this cocktail lounge is their extensive Sotol, Mezcal, and Pisco spirit list.

Topolobampo

Rick Bayless’ fine-dining fixture is known for upscale Mexican tasting menus. Open since 1991, this is a long-standing favorite in Chicago that was recently crowned with the “Outstanding Restaurant” title at the 2017 James Beard awards.

Eataly

When in River North for the evening you must always go to Eataly whether it’s to eat or drink, they have you covered.The best part, you can do all of this in one space and even get some shopping done while you drink.  Grab some gourmet Italian foods to bring home with you!

 

The Public House is a lively nightlife spot where you could truly party all evening.  However, you don’t have to be in full on “party mode” to enjoy this bar. Where it’s really at is the Cake Shakes. Yup, Cake Shakes; craft beer, ice cream, and a big slice of delicious cake. They have your chocolate or vanilla covered on the daily, but keep an eye on their Instagram for specialty features.

Rossi’s is a River North classic, it is honestly the only dive bar in the neighborhood.  They don’t have a website, there is no social media accounts to follow, and no “mixologist” behind the bar. They offer cheap beer, simple cocktails, a juke box, and friendly bartenders. Rossi’s is a true cozy, feel good joint, and it’s right next to Public House so why not make a pit stop?

Three Dots and a Dash is an underground tiki bar featuring the best of the best in spirits and cocktail decor. It might be a $15  drink, but it’s going to be a stiff cocktail with amazing flavors. All of their cocktails are unique, the glassware is all customized, and the flavor is always on point. No matter what you order at Three Dots and a Dash it will consistently be the best tiki drinks you’ve ever had.
