If Shopping is your thing, make sure to visit the Magnificent Mile which borders this admired neighborhood.
What distinguishes River North from the rest of the Windy City is its Gallery District. Once an old manufacturing and warehouse area, the River North Gallery District has the greatest concentration of art galleries in the United States, outside of Manhattan. Emerging artists of all kinds display their work beside established artists in an area dense with hot bars, cool dance clubs, and all kinds of entertainment venues. The House of Blues ranks among these highlights, where people come from all over the world to enjoy blues music and folk art as well as southern-inspired cuisine. If jazz is your thing, Andy’s Jazz Club on East Huron Street, shouldn’t be missed. Chicago’s top artists perform a range of musical stylings from Traditional, Swing and Bop to Fusion, Latin and Afro-Pop.
