  • Enjoy the view from the rooftop patio or the glass-enclosed space in the winter, with comfy couches, high-top tables and bar seating, it's a big draw for Erin Hayes' destination-themed cocktails.
  • The rooftop watering hole coming at you from the Boka dudes and the Hotel Lincoln is named for one of Abe's bodyguards.
  • I feel like Chicago is really stepping up their rooftop scene. Good stuff here.
  • Gran terraza!
  • Nice views of the lake & city from this rooftop bar. Decent selection of wine + cocktails, but beer was cans only, and $7 per. That said, if you can snag a cabana spot on a sunny day, totally worth it
  • Order something simple that you enjoy from the bar, and then sit and sip while you enjoy the spectacular views. I suggest going during the day for best results.
  • I'd like to walk into the kitchen and scream, "Lay off the salt!"
  • Best rooftop views in the city!
  • Order something simple, sit back & sip while enjoying the heavenly view
  • The Long Way Round is a great cocktail. Worth the extra money for the skyline view. Tough for groups, unless you're lucky enough go get a table. Better for couples or a date night.
  • If you are looking for a nice bar with the flair of have to be here....fantastic....
  • Romantic view.
  • A bit overrated. Nice views but they can't make a caipirinha to save their lives and will charge you $15 for the pleasure!
  • Gorgeous view
  • BEWARE Scotch drinkers: there is a $3 surcharge for "Neat" and "On The Rocks" orders. So expect each glass to be more expensive than you may have thought. Stupid stupid practice.
  • Good job by the staff tonight. A bit cold on the deck, but the heaters were on and everything was perfect. Best roof on the city.
  • Amazing views of Chicago waterfront from this rooftop bar @ Hotel Lincoln.
  • Great rooftop view
  • All season long, the roof is amazing. Staff is attentive and the menu is delicious. First come, first serve. You will love the ambiance of this Chicago Roof top offering with memorable views.
  • Amazing views from the J Parker! It gets very crowded so I recommend going right when it opens each day.
