Chicago’s 10 Best Rooftop Bars
Come on up, the view’s fine
Congratulations! You made it to summer. First order of business: spend as much time outside as possible--preferably while sipping an icy cocktail and taking in a killer skyline view. (There’s no one more deserving.) Here are ten perfect Chicago rooftops for doing just that.
The Terrace at Trump
The Donald’s soaring skyscraper has, hands down, the most dramatic view of any rooftop in town. The selfie you’ll take with the Wrigley Building will almost justify the $20 you’ll pay for one mojito.
401 N. Wabash Ave.; 312-588-8000 or trumpchicagohotel.com
J. Parker at Hotel Lincoln
Rain or shine, a new retractable roof keeps this spot going strong. Head up and you’ll see the zoo, the park, the lake, the city and everything in between. (If you ask us, it’s a tie between this and Trump for number one rooftop view in Chicago.)
