Bar with a view

Best way to enjoy Chicago from up high. Going up the elevator for a drink is free. The drinks are below average for Chicago but the view is spectacular.

We visited this "sky-high" lounge, and enjoyed some drinks and a most amazing view of the city. The wait for the elevator was long, and people can be pushy, but it was well worth that, and the high price tag for the drinks. Plus, I discovered a really good local beer called 312 that I am able to get here... More

Having a drink at the Signature Lounge is a great way to see the city. We would rather pay for a cocktail at the lounge than have to pay an entrance fee for the observation deck. We went during the day and at night to see the great views. Weird fact- the view from the ladies room is amazing!

Had a few drinks and a little to eat at the lounge at 96th floor. View is breathtaking and I would love to go here again. Prices are a bit high but well worth it. And as Im from Sweden it still fetl cheap :)

We went here for a drink instead of queuing to go up to the observation deck. The lounge is only one floor lower so the view is much the same and still 360°. The drinks are pricey but you're really paying for the views. Go up for one drink and you'll end up paying half what you'd pay for the... More

Great view! Expensive drinks but the way I look at it, you're really paying for the view. Still cheaper than Skydeck. Highly recommend for a beautiful night view of the Chicago skyline.

Considering this place has the best view in Chicago you expect more. Interior is dull and outdated and could definitely need a good fresh up. Bartender ignorant.

It was recommended we come here instead of doing an observation deck at either of the towers in town, and I am so glad we did. The place is very large and can accommodate quite the crowd. Got in line and waited a few minutes to get to the front. They asked if I would like a table by the... More

My wife and I had a great appetizer (Mediterranean Platter), a wonderful drink (Old Fashioned) and a delicious dessert (Peppermint Cheesecake)...all to complement the incredible views of Chicago! The staff was attentive and service was timely...not that we were in a hurry...we were just soaking it in.

Every time I go to Chicago to visit friends I go here at least once. I have been during the day and it is great, but at night it is amazing to look out at the city being lit up with all the lights. The drinks are great, but on the expensive side (no surprise for the city). I love... More

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.
