There’s nothing quite like kicking back and enjoying a drink against the backdrop of a sparkling skyline.
Even if you consider yourself quite familiar with Chicago’s exploding rooftop bar scene, it’s likely you haven’t seen anything quite like this yet. LondonHouse, a brand-new rooftop lounge on top of the new hotel under construction on Michigan and Wacker (85 E. Wacker), is planning on offering Chicago’s first ever three-level rooftop terrace.
The terrace offers “sweeping views of the Chicago River, Lake Michigan and the Magnificent Mile from the top of it all,” according to LondonHouse’s website. The area will also offer classic cocktails and small bites.
While the three-story patio is sure to draw the largest crowds, the bar and hotel both also offer plenty more than what meets the eye initially. The original in-dome cupola sitting on the exclusive 23rd floor will allow you to book private dinners for a dining experience we can’t wait to try for ourselves. Two floors below, the fashionable indoor bar is set to offer up a variety of American fare (with a contemporary spin) in a charged-up atmosphere.
Last but not least, the Bridges Lobby Bar, which features floor to ceiling windows on the second floor. The lounge area has views of the Chicago River, drinks, and small bites with a more casual ambiance than the areas up above.
LondonHouse is set to open this spring, although an exact date has not yet been set.
