Everyone agrees that the rooftop scene is a wonderful way to enjoy the summer in Chicago. With the city’s beautiful skyline as a backdrop there’s nothing that can top a happy hour or cocktail experience high above the hectic streets. We pick 10 of the best rooftop bars to try.
Drumbar perfectly fits into the chic and trendy Streeterville neighborhood, and is an ideal spot to enjoy the beautiful patio atmosphere. If you’re strolling down the Mag Mile, this is the best place for a happy hour cocktail. The two cocktail favorites include the ‘Walk A Tight Rope’ and the ‘Hog Wild.’ These whiskey based drinks attract most people to keep coming back for more. Note that the happy hour specials run from Monday to Saturday.

GreenRiver is stocked with refreshing beverage options for any and every mood. If you’re seeking a more tropical option for your visit on the warm and sunny terrace, then say no more, the passion fruit meets lemon drink known as the ‘Haley’s Comet’ is the choice for you. This rooftop offers light and tasty bites as well. We recommend the pea and avocado toast or the goat cheese salad. Note that this restaurant also takes reservations.
