Best Rooftop Bars: Chicago


I know we are no where near rooftop and patio season but the weather was oddly beautiful this past weekend here in Chicago — it was hard to pass up the opportunity! I spent my days off with my loved ones grabbing a drink + food and shopping down Michigan Avenue. Starting off the new year right and celebrating my first week at Zapwater Communications. I can already feel that this year is going to be a good one! This weather and positive mindset had put me in the mood to write. I was uninspired and slacking towards the end of my semester but I am back and better than ever.

After turning 21 this past year, I realized I haven’t done as much exploring cute bars / resturants as much as I would have liked to. But I have been to some beautiful rooftop bars over the past year, so it was only right to share with you all my favorite rooftops I have discovered / hidden gems in the city of Chicago. I love this city and I am NEVER bored (but I have spent A LOT of money here).
