1. Lost Lake
    This is the new hotness. Paul McGee has crafted an awesome tiki menu, but the bar has something for tiki-skeptics as well.
  2. Analogue
    Affordable, chill vibe, amazing Cajun food. What more do you need?
  3. Sable
    Even though founding bartender, Mike Ryan, no longer manages this bar, Sable is still the most consistent cocktail joint in River North.
  4. Cindys at Chicago Athletic Club
    Are these the best cocktails in Chicago? No. Is this the coolest place to see and be seen drinking great cocktails? Yes.
  5. Maude's Liquor Bar
    This French restaurant serves cocktails as good as the amazing beef tartare. The many variations of smashes will you interested and quenched.
