I read about Zed 451 on TripAdvisor's "best rooftop bars," and was surprised to find that (a) it was right next door to the apartment we had rented for the week, and (b) while it is indeed on the roof, it's only two stories tall! In a city famous for its skyscrapers, I expected it to have a bit more altitude.
That being said, the rooftop bar is rather cozy, with lots of intimate couches and conversation pits. The cocktails and the food options were inventive and delicious.
We were equally surprised to learn, as we went back downstairs to leave, that the restaurant portion of Zed 451 is quite large! I'll plan to go back for dinner on my next trip to Chicago.
