I've been to this lounge before. Besides good food and a busy bar in the center of the lounge located on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Center, it famously offers an absolutely spectacular 360 degree view of the whole Chicago area, on a clear day. Hence its popularity with tourists from all over the world. The seating at... More

We've been to the lounge a number of times, as the view from there is simply unbeatable. However, waiting 15 minutes before someone takes an order for drinks for two has to be considered unacceptable. But, to be fair, once the order was placed we received our drinks pretty quickly. View is still quite fantastic!

We stopped here rather than Willis tower per recommendations of locals and others who have visited Chicago. We did wait in line to get an elevator up for about 20 minutes and then again for another 10 or so to get seated. Right after getting off the elevator, a waiter grabbed us and said he had immediate table seating if... More

I have been Signature lounge on 21st, Nov, 2016. It was so crowd! Unfortunately, I found a terrible sight! The left side of the lounge was for the white people. They were enjoying reserve with some available seats even though there were so long waiting-line yet. However, the right side of the lounge was for colored people(almost Asians). The right... More

We headed to the lounge snot 1pm. There were five of us. The host was very considerate and moved us up to the window fir a spectacular view even with clouds. We order a couple of appetizers and drinks. Service was slow but we were in hurry spending the time talking and enjoying the view. One of the ladies in... More

Typically I don't enjoy waiting to get into a bar and had I not been seated at a window this would have been no different. You wait downstairs to get on the elevator, then when you get on the elevator you're like alright lets get a drink into me, but you have to wait some more to get seated. As... More

Go to the Signature lounge instead which is just a floor below. From there you can have a drink or... none, and take pictures. My wife told me that even the women restrooms have windows.

Great spot to grab a cocktail high above Chicago's downtown skyscrapers. TIP: While waiting in line for a table, ask the person handling the bar line you want to wait for a window table. My friend and I got seated away from the window which resulted in this average rating. Had we known we needed to ask for a window... More

Workers helping to get in and out very nice, although while waiting you feel like cattle being handled from one place to another. Best views from ladies restroom at 96th floor. You don't have to pay for that. Service at the lounge could be much better. Not very nice and we ordered beer and they served in can...we expected more... 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.
