This is a great place to go for views of Chicago and IMHO a way better deal than going up the observatory as you get to enjoy your drinks plus the view. Timing is important and my advice is to go in the afternoon to...More

So easy to do... The beverages are expensive but what can we say? Amazing view above Chicago. Just get in the elevator and expect the place not to be overcrowded!

Don't pay to look out over Chicago, the $50 Sunday Brunch is great, and wonderful views over the city. We went back for cocktails at dusk, and the views after dark are stupendous.

Went about 8pm on a Wednesday to find a pretty busy room. Clear night so brilliant view over Chicago. South side or South East corner probably best. Expect lots of people at the windows taking pictures. Cocktails were eye wateringly strong and expensive at $17...More

Expect to pay $10 for a beer and $17 for cocktails. You're paying for the amazing view. So go have one drink, get your pictures and go to a dive bar where money goes a long way and staff are less pretentious.

Choose the signature lounge at 96th floor before the observation deck. You visit for free if you'll have something to drink. The view of Chicago is super cool (best photo view from the ladies' room). The place as such isn't very coasy. It's huge, with...More

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.

We were in the lounge at night time. It is kind of a happening place, so I doubt it closes early.
