While Arbella, the new cocktail lounge from the folks behind Tanta, will serve drinks using ingredients from across the globe, the interiors won't make visitors feel like they're stuck at an airport. Opening today, there are two bars inside the River North space that exudes a warm, modern feel.

The 74-seat lounge is a few doors east of Tanta. There's exposed brick walls, and light woods that complement the leather booths. Yes, there's even a flatscreen TV hidden behind one of the bars. Check out the photos below.

Arbella, 112 W. Grand Ave., (312) 344-1673, open Sunday through Friday 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. and Saturday 4 p.m. until 3 a.m.
