Great View, Not So Great Price

Went at night (maybe 9ish) with the girlfriend after dinner and there were a couple of available spots by windows. Obviously, the drinks were overpriced, but that view!

If you get a chance, go have a drink in the Signature Lounge especially during sunset. The view over the lake and across the city is amazing!

The views are amazing, of course. Be prepared to wait for a table by the windows to open up, although there is an open space for folks to take photos and such. The food is just your average bar food. A hummus platter was $17.00. Mousse cake was $10.00.

Amazing city views! Be prepared for a LONG wait on the weekends- and note that ALL visitors are asked for ID. We went at 10pm on a Monday night & it was crowded but we were able to secure a great table. Drinks are expensive. No children after 7pm

If you want to enjoy a cocktail with a view then I highly suggest visiting the 95th Floor of the John Hancock Center. The Signature Lounge offers premium cocktails with a dazzling skyline view of the city. I would suggest arriving around 5.30pm and staying until sunset you won’t be disappointed. I wouldn’t bother with the food here its average... More

I don't really have the right to give a proper review as I didn't actually make it up to the cocktail lounge, just wanted to catch people's eye and make sure that all Europeans visiting this beautiful city take their passports or photo ID with them or you won't be allowed up to the cocktail bar. Would have been really... More

I went to Signature lounge bar at 96th floor and enjoyed the evening view of the city. Drinks are quite pricey and on Thursday evening it was crowded, but it worth visiting. Ladies , view in the bathroom is pretty inviting too!;) walk the whole space to see different views and then get seated.

Very disappointed! Rude customer service, dirty tables, high prices for not worthy drinks, most of the time you can't even enjoy the view from your seat unless you are seated next tot the window. If you are a polite customer and you are trying to enjoy the room just from your seat, so others can appreciate it too, then you... More

Well of course the view is great! You are on the 96th floor. The lounge faces the west so you see the city lights, not the water. It is difficult to get a table next to the windows but you can get up and stand close to the windows at various places. And the view in the women's restroom is... More

This was a great way to take in the amazing views of the city without paying to go up to the 360 Chicago. We went to the lounge at night and requested a window table - it was so worth the wait! And ladies, be sure to use the restroom and take in the amazing views!

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
