Me and my friend loved this place, and our waitress named Vanessa was very nice. We will be back in the future to get coffee again. Thank-you!

I heard this was the place to go for a drink instead of paying to go to the Sky Decks. We did have a little problem finding the door outside the building to go to the lounge but after asking someone we found it and sat and had a drink. The Women's bathroom has an entire wall of windows with... More

We visited between Christmas and New Year's so it was very busy and we were not seated close to the windows and so did not enjoy the view while we had and expensive drink. However, the view from the Women's restroom was fantastic.

If you want the best view of the shore and of downtown, skip the line and go straight to the elevator to the bar on the 96th floor instead. Grab a table by the window, buy a drink and enjoy the view. If you feel like walking around, feel free to do it as well with or without the drink.... More

Cheaper than paying to get the 360 degree tour even though the drinks are crazy expensive. We got two beers and paid $20 but that was half as much as two tickets to the observation level. The view and experience are pretty killer. The only way I'd ever go up top in any of these types of buildings. Much better... More

We opted to visit the lounge rather an pay for the skywalk. The view is beautiful - we overlooked the lakeshore. Other views included the city proper. We had 4 drinks and a shared sandwich which with tip totaled $93. The drinks were well made and the sandwich was good.

This was one of our many stops at the signature lounge. While it was a bit busier during the week between Christmas and New Years, we still for a table within 10 minutes for a party of 4. The kids love snapping pics of the city. It's not gourmet food but it's free and the drinks always are well made.

First, the good: THE VIEWS! Who cares if your back is to the window (which can happen if the place is busy). Views are 360° so hang out, take your time, enjoy the view (esp from the ladies' room) Also good are the strength of the cocktails, which helps offset their high cost. Since this is basically a cocktail lounge... 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.
