UPDATE: A rep said the opening date has been pushed back to November 9. Updated story follows.

Target practice starts November 9 in River North as Point & Feather, Hubbard Street’s newest bar, opens. The bar replaces Mercer 113 and features food from chef Rick Rodriguez (WHISK) and a design from Adolfo Garcia. Garcia worked with the Stefanis to open the Broken English Taco Pub mini chain. For P&F, he’s working with nightlife vets Roman and Sammy Sanchez (John Barleycorn, Old Crow) on this new project that features dart boards and frozen gin and tonics at 113 W. Hubbard Street.

There are 12 dart boards in the 6,000-square-foot space at Hubbard and LaSalle. It uses vintage dressers and vanities, and the floors are covered with Persian rugs. Check out the murals from artist Jenny Vyas. Garcia dialed down the color in his design compared to the bombastic look over at any of his Broken English locations. It’s more in line with the neighborhood mix of professionals, tourists, and bros of all walks of life. There’s also space for a DJ — it wouldn’t be River North without a DJ. However, Point & Feather aims to please weekday customers, not just those interested in having a bass-thumping party on the weekends.

The dart tips won’t be metal, as Garcia wants to give Chicago’s paramedic community a break. A second dart bar, Flight Club, should open this winter in the Loop. Meanwhile, preview Point & Feather below. The bar opens next week on Friday, November 9.
