We visited the Signature Lounge near the top of the old Hancock Tower on N. Michigan Avenue in Chicago. It is one floor above the Signature Restaurant and a couple floors below the observation deck, but there is no fee to visit the lounge. Drinks...More

Take a minute to look around every once in awhile. When you do, look around from the 96th floor of the John Hancock building. Lake Michigan and downtown Chicago never looked better! It was amazing to sit back, relax, have a drink and soak it...More

To get to the Lounge you are taken in a group on one elevator up to the 44th floor, then the freight elevator up to the 95th. There can be a line up at either of these places, both going up or going down. So...More

We went for cocktails and the view. We did not leave disappointed. Make sure you visit the women’s restroom for the best view. Also, don’t try to take the stairs down.

TR - 6 women in the city for the day (3 Replies)
A group of six women visited the area last weekend (stayed in Woodstock) and spent one day in Chicago. This was Friday, October 2. The rain and drizzle spoiled some of our plans (like the river cruise and time in the parks) and made our walking tour a bit less enjoyable . . . but that couldn't be helped, so we made the best of it! Traffic on the way into the city was very manageable . . . surprisingly so. We arrived at The Phoenix in Chinatown about 10:30 a.m. and were able to park on...More

I can't blame you for not being in a hurry to get back to Chicago. I don't know why you would go to Dim Sum at Phoenix when there are so many contemporary delicious breakfast places. And I would never recommend Pizano's for the deep dish Pizza experience, and waiting an hour for pizza anywhere isn't smart as there are delicious deep dish pizza places all over, walking around in the rain would certainly not be the way to go. And while the Signature Lounge does have a higher price point for...More

The Signature Lounge dress attire (6 Replies)
Is there any kind of dress attire for the Signature lounge during late afternoon/early evening? I'm going to be in Chicago with my g/f at the end of March and while we are walking around the town, we are thinking a drink at the Signature lounge would me a nice thing to do. We are going to be in jeans and comfortable shoes, t-shirts or such. Thank you

I've been in there on a Saturday afternoon in jeans and regular shoes. Everyone else was dressed the same. I imagine they get a ton of tourists all day long, so the attire is probably a lot less formal than you might imagine. There were plenty of kids in there, people with shopping bags, etc.

You can visit the Signature Lounge if you want to. You'll be in the general neighborhood for doing both the Hancock and the Cruise. If the night is clear go up for a drink after your cruise. If the tower has it's head in the clouds then don't bother 'cause there won't be a view and there are better bars at street level. Play it by ear. What have you got to lose? Why not take the red or brown line to Fullerton Station and walk around Lincoln Ave, or take the Brown line to Southport, or the...More
