River North Chicago Neighborhood Guide

Trendy · Hip · Nightlife · Transportation · Urban · Concrete Jungle


If you want an energized urban experience, River North Chicago is the neighborhood for you. Its unique blend of commerce, housing, and tourism makes it one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Chicago. Most River North residences are glass or brick high rises, and a smaller portion of residents live in converted warehouse lofts.


If you’re a local, River North doesn’t offer as much communal or park space as other neighborhoods, but pet lovers still take advantage of the neighborhood’s pet-friendly buildings and river views. If walkable streets are a must, check out Gold Coast or Fulton River District.


With easy access to Chicagoland highways (I-90/94 and Lakeshore Drive), CTA Brown Line and Red Line, and The Loop (within walking distance), commuting from River North is usually a breeze… unless you’re driving during rush hour.


If you live in Chicago and like to stay out late, River North is probably where you’ll end up. With clubs like Tao, bars like Bub City, Three Dots, and Dash, as well as music venues like Howl at the Moon and The Redhead Piano Bar— River North is a party every night of the week.

Not always. Most locals don't consider River North to be downtown, by and large the area south of the river, otherwise known as The Loop is considered to be Chicago's downtown.
Connecting with a local Chicago apartment expert is the best & fastest way to find apartments in Chicago. You’ll get access to all the current rent specials in Chicago, get a custom list of recommended buildings (some of which you might not even know about), and sign your next lease with confidence.
Apartment policies regarding AirBnB change frequently, so for the most accurate list, we recommend reaching out to one of our Locators for the most up-to-date information.
It is best to start looking for apartments in Chicago 10 weeks before your move-in date. 10 weeks will allow you to see all of the inventory available, and also give you plenty of time to tour units and consider your options.
Apartment listing websites can be great for preliminary research, but working with a Locator allows you to ask questions, get personalized suggestions, find buildings you might not have found on your own, find the best rent discounts, and ultimately sign a lease in a place that you love with zero stress and absolute confidence.
