Bars in River North Overview

Moe's Cantina - Bar | Restaurant in River North, Chicago

The River North bar scene has so much to offer! In a neighborhood overflowing with hotels and tourist attractions, it’s no surprise that River North bars cater to a variety of tastes. From swanky cocktail lounges to down-to-earth jazz clubs, it’s easy to find a spot to suit any mood.

For a classy evening, start the night at Mercadito, an upscale Mexican restaurant featuring an impressive array of tequila. The restaurant serves a variety of small plates for lunch and dinner, and then DJs turn the spot into a more club-like atmosphere later in the evening. For continued enjoyment in a club-like atmosphere, try Cuvee, a swanky lounge where patrons sip champagne on leather banquettes.

Those looking for a more wild evening should head to LaSalle Power Co., a decked out sports bar and lounge featuring dozens of widescreens, dance floors, and pool tables. The third floor even features the Thunder From Down Under revue, for ladies looking to have a more Aussie-filled evening. Another excellent spot for wild nights is Howl at the Moon, a dueling piano bar that often turns into good fun debauchery later in the evening.

And of course there’s Andy’s Jazz Club, one of Chicago’s famous blues venues featuring soulful crooners and lively backing bands every night of the week. Andy’s also offers dinner, providing for an entertaining evening on the town all rolled up into one classy bar.
