Chicago – Rooftop Guide

The “wind city”, Chicago is a special city full of skyscraper. You must have seen featured in lot of movie, and TV-Show. What is the most magical about that place is the contrast between the river that cross all those buildings, and the beach that is lying at their bottom. During my time there, one of my favorite thing to do was to explore all the different rooftops. Here a selection of my favorite :

Rooftop to brunch :

Cindy’s Rooftop Bar. 
This restaurant is very nice to have a lunch time of a snack break there. The food is delicious and the view is leading on the famous Michigan Avenue, this place is just across the Bean so you can enjoy the view of the most icon piece of Chicago.

This “almost” rooftop is definitely a stop by during your visit in Chicago. The view is incredible, an you can take the most iconic photo of Chicago flying of the emptyness.

Best rooftop for a romantic dinner

The signature room
The restaurant is few levels below the Chicago 360° it’s an adorable restaurant to have a romantic dinner. There is two section of the place, the café/bar and the officiel dining place. Don’t forget to make a reservation to have a window table !


Best rooftop for the winter

London House Rooftop
Easy will be to find rooftop during the summer, Chicago has dozens of other places that i won’t mention. However one of my favorite one was the the London House rooftop. Located on the last floor floor of the hotel, it’s usually an outside bar, but tuning the winter you can still access to it and enjoy a breathtaking view in a old Roman temple atmosphere .


PS : Best view of Chicago … the restroom !

One of the funniest secret of Chicago is that if you want to have the most spectacular view  you must go to the ladies at The Signature room restaurant. Sorry boys, unfortunately this will be only a woman privilege !
