At the recommendation of his parents, my boyfriend and I decided to forgo 360 Chicago in favor of the Signature Lounge. Same views, but with cocktails! We were there on Valentine's Day and assuming it would get crowded we took on a "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" attitude and went around lunchtime. There was a line but it moved fairly quickly.... More

Wonderful views of the city, especially from the ladies room. Be prepared to pay $15 a drink but it was one info the best martinis I had ever had! Can't wait to go again!

We had very good drinks at the Signature Lounge and enjoyed the Christmas decorations and the amazing view! I would recommend this over paying for the observation deck.

Our tour guide from the architectural cruise tour suggested this. Instead of going up the John Hancock building's observation deck to enjoy amazing views, we went up the signature lounge to drink, relax, and appreciate Chicago's spectacular skyline. Be ready to fall in line and wait to get in the lounge. We waited for approximately 30 minutes to be seated.... More

a group of us arrived at the Signature Lounge for drinks and to take the view of Chicago in. We got in quite quickly and were seated 1 table back from the window. The seats are quite tight in there but comfortable. the service was quick and the beer was cold. The guy at the entry was very friendly while... More

A beautiful winter day in record cold temperatures - we watched the sun go down over Chicago's amazing cityscape over several rather lovely cocktails! A magical combination.

We always stop by here in the evening for a few drinks and over look the city. It truly is amazing at night with all the street lights on it gives you a true sense of how big the city is and how the streets run. It can be hard to get a seat by the windows but that's a... More

Don't pay silly money to visit the observation deck, visit here chill out, drink amazing cocktails and look around at the amazing views. Nothing else compares!

Why pay for 360 Chicago when you can come to the Signature Lounge and take in the same view with a drink in hand? Might I also add that it is on a higher floor than the observatory? It is truly breathtaking and personally, I want to say that it's a better view than the Willis Tower. My friends and... More

Yes, it is true that you don't need to pay for a ticket for the observation deck. Grab a drink at the Lounge, the drinks are $15 dollars but beats the $40 bucks for the deck. The host was extremely nice, the waitress yea a little sassy but wasn't the worst I have run into. Try an appetizer. Small portions... More
