With so much to do and see in Chicago, it’s hard to call it a night. And if you don’t want to, you don’t have to! Here are some top spots to go for late night happy hour in River North.
Devon Seafood Grill
39 E Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60611 b/t Wabash Ave & Rush St Near North Side
Voted by Yelpers for having the best happy hours (yes, plural because they have two in a day!), their happy hours (called “Finest Hours”) run from 4-7pm and again from 9pm to closing time. Devon Seafood Grill is generous enough to offer a free appetizer when you check in, on top of fresh oysters at $1 each, and $2.50 jumbo shrimp cocktails. For drinks, try the Porthole Infusion cocktail, a Moscow mule mix with mint and fresh lime.
25 E Ohio St, Chicago, IL 60611
Another bar that offers two happy hour deals, Flemings is known for their 5 for $6 til 7 deal, that offers five specialty cocktails, five wines by the glass and five appetizers for $6 each, until 7pm. This happy hour happens all week. There is also a later 8 for $9 til 10 happy hour, which offers assorted wines, cocktails and snacks at $9 til their closing time at 10pm.
415 N Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60654
Thursday happy hour, which starts at 4pm and goes all the way until 11pm, is definitely a thing at Sullivan’s. Enjoy live music alongside their $7 signature martinis, wines and bar entrees. Patrons suggest ordering “The Knockout,” which is both sweet and refreshing.
Henry’s Swing Club
18 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60654
With a great vibe, DJs that know how to kill it, and cheap food and drinks, it’s no wonder this place is always crowded, even on Thursdays. Happy hour is from 5-8pm (7-9pm on Thurs-Sat, but they are open til 2am), where you can get any draft cocktail or beer, plus any slider, for the price of the current hour (eg. $5 beer at 5pm, $6 at 6pm). Try the Killing Floor cocktail made with jalapeno, tequila, watermelon and lime.
Also look out for promos that come out of nowhere – like $2.10 slider night on 2/10!
Highline Bar + Lounge
169 W Kinzie St, Chicago, IL 60654
A brunch spot by day, sports bar by night (open til 2am), Highline Bar + Lounge has a $24 eat-all-you-can brunch buffet, and on Mondays, they also offer 50% off draft beers, wines and mixed drinks from 7pm to 10pm.
