Opened back in 2010 with Mike Ryan at its helm, Sable is one of the few cocktail lounges worth braving River North’s nightlife scene. Its tome-like menu waxes romantic on standards (Aviations and Corpse Revivers hail “From the Beforetime”; Vieux Carres and Palomas live “In the Long Ago”), and there’s an alumni section of originals nodding to some familiar names.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Pick one from the range of “Gin and Tonics, Spanish Style.” There are several.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Sable is part of Hotel Palomar and features hotel-bar prices ($14 cocktails). Same for the food, which is worth ordering if you’re hungry.
