РЕСТОРАНИ НА ДАХАХ / Rooftop Drink On: 2016

jparker_chi_01Літо, спека і вічні пошуки пригод змушують нас шукати все нові місця для відпочинку в Чикаго.

Цього разу нас потягнуло у подорож по ресторанах на дахах. Мусимо визнати – тут є усе, що людині потрібно для відпочинку після довгого робочого тижня: свіжий вітерець, смачні страви і неймовірно-гарні краєвиди.

У добру путь!


100 W. Monroe St., 312-236-1234
This wide-open space lives up to its name. For the first time on May 11, it will greet summer with red hibiscus flowers and overflowing potted plants among ample lounge seating for 90.


1 W. Upper Wacker Dr., 312-372-7200

This highly anticipated hot spot will raise the bar–get it?–with new mixology and bar food with a twist. Think seasonal berry ginger mint juleps alongside shareable seafood plates.

112 W. Hubbard St., 312-955-0339
The first floor of this River North newcomer already proved to be a showstopper. Imagine the excitement when this casual crowd is invited to take over the rooftop in May, especially during “joyful hour” with $5 shots of Don Julio 1942. If you’re not feeling shots, order up a piña colada or a shareable plate of jazzed-up deviled eggs (caviar, dill, red onions, caper berries, and crème fraiche) to enjoy with more than 160 new BFFs.


259 E. Erie St., 312-337-0101
How could the inspired cocktails at one of Chicago’s best new bars get any better? Try pairing one of Julia Momose’s concoctions with the unexpectedly picturesque view from a breezy terrace at Northwestern Medicine’s Streeterville campus. The terrace will have 50 seats on the rooftop dedicated to diners.

39 S. La Salle St., 312-750-9012
This rooftop tribute to the high energy of Latin America is slated to open this summer on the 15th floor of the Kimpton Gray Hotel. The brains behind the bar have yet to be named, but patrons should expect the cocktail offerings to feature Latin American ingredients like roasted chili, smoky mescal, and grilled pineapple, and the food will take a cue from Peruvian and Argentine street fare.


166 E. Superior St., 312-787-6000
Classic cocktails pack a welcome punch at this laidback bar atop the MileNorth Hotel. The intimate, no-frills space is packed with comfy couches perfect for a mixed crowd of cozy couples and pre-partygoers. Grab an old-fashioned and stay awhile.

Tuna tartare tacos served at Noyane.


101 E. Erie St., 312-667-6700
Chef Richard Sandoval was tapped for the upcoming Conrad Chicago’s three planned restaurants, and the results are sure to live up to the hype. Japanese meets Latin influence with tableside hibachi and plenty of sake to go around.


12 S. Michigan Ave., 312-792-3502
Don’t let the inevitable summertime queues stop you from reveling in this bar’s Instagram-worthy view of Lake Michigan and the Bean. This could very well be the best view on this list, and thanks to spirit guide Nandini Khaund, your thirst for exotic potions will be quenched with an updated spring cocktail menu.


118 W. Grand Ave., 312-222-9700
Peruvian pisco and its tangy cousin the pisco sour are given the star treatment at this rooftop bar, a breezy accompaniment to Gastón Acurio’s ode to Peru’s culinary history.

660 N. Orleans St., 312-624-9892

The competition in Chicago hasn’t been enough to slow this place down. With room for 118 roof-hoppers, it’s hardly hurting for space on the rustic terrace where you can order from the full kitchen menu in addition to cocktails. Enjoy rooftop-exclusive drinks like a nitrogen-blended Frappuccino by Sparrow Coffee Roastery alongside an order of lamb hashwi with housemade pita.
