F&W's Kate Krader went in search of the best neighborhoods in America for cocktail adventures. Here, her guide to River North in Chicago.

Charcoal Bar
Hidden beneath Sumi Robata Bar, this hushed, 11-seat spot mixes a handful of stellar cocktails served over hand-carved ice. 702 N. Wells St.; sumirobatabar.com.

Gilt Bar
Lesser-known drink styles like daisies and mules are highlighted at this softly lit space. 230 W. Kinzie St.; giltbarchicago.com.

Sable Kitchen & Bar
Behind a 40-foot bar, Mike Ryan concocts genius drinks like Ziggy's Stardust, made with tequila, pineapple and salt-and-pepper syrup. 505 N. State St.; sablechicago.com.

Three Dots and a Dash
With a nod to past tiki legends, Paul McGee has created a tropical oasis where rum is plentiful and drinks are served in Polynesian mugs. 435 N. Clark St.; threedotschicago.com.
