Washed Ashore

Where Chicago - - WHERE NOW -

Young (or just young at heart) beach­go­ers will en­joy the col­lege­like rev­elry of North Av­enue Beach. Vis­i­tors will have a hard time miss­ing Cast­aways (1603 N. Lake Shore Dr., 773.281.1200, cast­awayschicago.com), a boat-shaped res­tau­rant and bar lo­cated right on the sand. While the first­floor has an ice cream stand and walk-up burger bar, the rooftop of­fers seated meals and cock­tails. Beer buck­ets, piña co­ladas and fla­vored mar­gar­i­tas are all crowd fa­vorites. Pe­ri­od­i­cally through­out the sum­mer, DJs will spin hits or celebs like Demi Lo­vato may per­form quick con­certs. But the party ex­tends down the beach, where vol­ley­ball—and oc­ca­sion­ally beach beer pong, though it’s tech­ni­cally against the rules—are com­mon.
