River North Apartment Living

Neighborhood Vibe

Living here is a bit like living in a hybrid of a raucous college campus and the glitzy Las Vegas strip. Because commercial real estate here is among the most expensive in town, expect your bill from a night out in River North to be on the steep side. That’s why you’re likely to spot groups roaming about the bustling bar district of Hubbard Street: the more people to absorb the tab from the night’s entertainment, the better.

Heart of the Neighborhood

Hubbard Street is overflowing with bars and restaurants, and it’s not unusual to spot groups of revelers making their way from one spot to the next. Aside from the many entertainment options on Hubbard, the House of Blues anchors the neighborhood’s live music scene in the shadow of Bertrand Goldberg’s iconic Marina Towers.

What We Love Most

The Merchandise Mart is a recognizable art deco icon along the Chicago River. In recent years the Mart has undergone extensive renovations inside and out, including a picnic seating area along the north bank of the river, a swanky lounge with a bar, amphitheater-style seating and coffee stand on the second floor that’s open to the public, and light shows that are projected across the massive building’s exterior on certain nights.

Best Way to Get Around

The Red and Brown Line trains make stops in River North, and it’s serviced by several bus routes as well. Gridlock is a real possibility in the one way streets during rush hour, so most Chicagoans will take public transit, bike or some other mode of transport to get to and from River North.
