Virgin Hotels Chicago reopened their rooftop bar, Cerise, with a new drink and dine pop-up experience just in time for the 4th of July weekend. The award-winning hotel is welcoming both vacationers and locals to spend the night in the heart of downtown Chicago after enjoying a nightcap under the stars.
Cerise is an electrifying rooftop bar that sparkles against the sprawling backdrop of Chicago. Twenty-six floors above the cityscape, guests are treated to a cozy fireplace crackling in the middle of a yawning terrace. Plush seating awaits, carefully distanced according to current restaurant guidelines, and an exploratory cocktail menu can be enjoyed al fresco. Cerise transforms a quick lunch in the city into a deluxe excursion with items like Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho and Sesame Seed Crusted Blue House Salmon, marinated in lemon butter. Dinner further elevates the experience with breathtaking views of the city at night.
But dining at Virgin Hotels Chicago doesn’t end with Cerise. Guests will adore the Two Zero Three coffee and wine bar, located on the corner of Wabash and Lake, which boasts a serene ambiance and an all-day menu of breakfast sandwiches, pastries, snacks, and salads. Enjoy a Dark Matter Coffee or other specialty coffee drinks, available from 7 am – 6 pm.
