Most of the bars on Hubbard Street in River North are the kind of places you randomly wander into on the weekends but don’t actually want to hang out in. But not Celeste. It’s a legitimate cocktail bar where you can sit casually over drinks with your friends or even a date. If you’re there at night on the weekend and decide you want a little more action, head to the upstairs bar, Disco, where it’s more of a dance party late at night.
