Rooftops on the Mile
Chicago has one of the best skylines in the world! Although we may be biased, what better way to admire the Chicago skyline than being 15-20 floors in the sky on a rooftop patio? We certainly can't think of one. We have rounded up our favorite rooftop bars and patios on The Mile to visit this summer.
Located on the 6th floor of the luxurious Peninsula Chicago, Z Bar takes luxury to new heights. With a modern and upscale design, you are assured to have a pleasant and delightful experience. Their fantastic cuisine and drink menu pair well with the unparalleled views of the Magnificent Mile.

Then there's LondonHouse. What more should even be said. When you're 22 floors up in the sky on top of the LondonHouse Hotel, its literally an on top of the world feeling. With sweeping views of the Chicago River, the renowned mix of skyscrapers, and of course The Magnificent Mile, LondonHouse is a sure bet.

A lot of people don't know that the Trump tower actually has a rooftop. It's called Terrace 16. Located on the 16th floor of Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, the rooftop restaurant in Chicago includes an indoor bar and dining room, and is punctuated by its outdoor seating and iconic views of the Chicago River. Definitely another rooftop to scratch off the bucket list.

A diamond in the dust. Our members at the DoubleTree by Hilton have a rooftop called The Wit. 27th floor, skyline views & upmarket cocktails, sounds like a deal to us!

Another diamond in the rough. Residents have said Shanghai Terrace has a "Really amazing rooftop dining area, one of the best I've ever been to." What separates Shanghai from the rest is that in the winter, the terrace becomes a rooftop ice skating rink!!!
