Miller’s has been open for over 80 years and feels like it’s from another era. It’s old school - with a huge bar, big booths, and a friendly staff encouraging you to have a drink at any hour of the day. Come here after work with a group, and make sure someone orders a martini.

Gilt Bar is the rare River North spot that’s easy to get into, and also has great food. Prepare for a lot of meat, butter, and salt.
Bar Siena is great for a fun gathering in the West Loop. Go heavy on the pizza and pastas. And drinks. You’re going to want those too.
