River East offers the best of bustling city life along with modern comfort. Bordered on the north by the Chicago River to Grand Avenue and on the west from Lake Shore Drive to Columbus Drive, River East sits immediately west of Navy Pier's entertaining boardwalk and makes the most of this proximity. Its nearness to Lake Michigan and its downtown location prove that there's always something to do in River East, from fine dining to shopping to popular bars and clubs.
River East's early Irish settlers began arriving in the mid-1800s. Before long, River East and its surrounding downtown districts numbered among the most populated urban areas in the United States. Following the Great Chicago Fire and the arrival of more European immigrants, River East modernized and rebounded with the construction of many of the skyscrapers that currently populate the Chicago skyline.
Chicago professionals love to call River East home. From its downtown location to its plethora of luxury high-rises, there is no better neighborhood in which to soak in Chicago's top business scene. These luxury towers' amenities — like 24-hour doormen, fitness centers, roof decks, and swimming pools — don't hurt either.
The River East Arts Center makes use of its proximity to Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile to serve the neighborhood as another Chicago hub and meeting place. The Center commonly hosts artisan business events, art shows, and live music. But perhaps the most iconic of River East's landmarks is simply River East itself: a bustling downtown community with the truly "city" feel of tall buildings, fine dining, shopping, and nightlife.
