ROOF – One of Chicago’s best rooftop lounges, ROOF offers signature cocktails with an amazing view. Sip on a French 27 (their version of the classic French 75) while overlooking Chicago’s Theatre District. During the nicer months of the weather, ROOF is open air with a view of the stars. There’s always high energy excitement but for those searching for a corner for two, there are hidden alcoves dotted around the facility.
