This stylish urban neighborhood just across the River from the loop is known for its art galleries, architecture, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Anchored by the Merchandise Mart, which is filled with businesses, trade show space and home furnishings shops and galleries. The architectural tour begins with the iconic Chicago Tribune Tower at Michigan Avenue and the river and cascades to the two “corn cobs” of Marina City. River North’s vibrant dining scene ranges from famous steakhouses to Italian small plates to the birthplace of deep-dish pizza at Pizzeria Uno. The nightlife is just as abundant with wine bars, modern night clubs and craft cocktail establishments.
