I love this topic!

The Terrace at Trump Tower is probably my favorite- a little fancier and pricey, but definitely worth it. You can see downtown and the lake, plus it's great people watching. Highly recommend.

The J. Parker at the Hotel Lincoln is a close second. This has the absolute best unobstructed view of the lake in the city so if view is what you want most, go here. It's a little trendier and always very crowded, but a great spot.

Others that are good: Drumbar, The Ritz-Carlton Chicago (A Four Seasons Hotel), ZED451 Rooftop

The Terrace at Trump Tower has one of the best views I've ever seen...and I have lived here my whole life! Just be prepared to wait to be seated outside and that you bring lots of cash. The drinks are pricey, but they are delicious. I recommend the mojito. Have fun!

Hi Mark,

Try Drumbar at the top of the Raffaello Hotel. Also, The J. Parker above Hotel Lincoln - A Joie de Vivre Hotel. The Godfrey Hotel offers a very different perspective on the city as their rooftop is only on the 4th floor but it's nice to feel like you're in the city instead of looking down on it. The rooftop at The Wit Hotel is still popular. 

Enjoy your visit!

The J. Parker - fancy, but the best view of Lincoln Park and the Lake!
