Pointing You In the Right Direction!
If you're looking for a chic, atmospheric, hot spot in River North, then you have to check out Point & Feather!
My friend and I were invited to check out the restaurant and immediately loved the vibe. With a rustic and sophisticated atmosphere it's a place that you can totally chill and relax after work but also party at over the weekend.
There's unimitated activities to do there - which sets them apart from other restaurants in that area. When you arrive you might see some people playing darts - which is so fun, or relaxing and socializing by the pool table. Lisa and I had too much fun playing with the pool table - I hadn't played in awhile but it was fun having that option.
The entire vibe of this chic bar gives me dark academia vibes with their evergreen book shelves, high ceilings, and overall rustic look. Whoever did their decorating definitely brings the whole look together - it's one of my favorite things about the restaurant.
Food & Drinks
I love a good balance especially when the theme matches the food and drinks. The beauty extends past the atmosphere and also trickles down onto the food and cocktails as well. I loved how fresh and flavorful the drinks were transporting you to a tropical oasis with their bold, bright, and fun flavors. You can tell that the in house mixologist really spent time playing with flavors to find the right combinations for each one.
The food was also delicious! Lisa and I ended up starting with the nachos which were so good! With a crispy corn tortilla, three cheesy blend, and perfect amount of spice, it's the perfect mix to delight your palette. We also heard great things about the chicken tenders so we got that as well. To be honest, the starters were so filling that it was difficult for us to get a full dish. So if you're a big appetizer person, this place will definitely be for you. However, we wanted to try a full menu option so we decided on the shrimp tacos. They were absolutely amazing, with fresh pico de gallo, sautéed rock shrimp, and sour cream, it was heavenly. I'd highly recommend trying their tacos as they were fresh, delicious, and filled with flavor.
Overall, we had such a blast heading to Point & Feather, truly a River North gem. If you're looking for a great after work spot - or looking for a chill place to go during the weekend, you should check this place out! Thanks for having us!
