Better deal than 360 Observation Lounge

Why pay (and often wait in long lines) when for $10 for beer/virgin drinks and $16 or so for cocktails you can get the same view, and a seat? If you're not near a window, you can... read more

Why pay (and often wait in long lines) when for $10 for beer/virgin drinks and $16 or so for cocktails you can get the same view, and a seat? If you're not near a window, you can walk around. Or wait, as we did, and you'll possibly be reseated. Not worth it if it weren't for the view. But the... More

If you want to see breathtaking views of Chicago without a long wait and without paying for the Sky deck at the Willis Building, then head to the Hancock Building and go to the Signature Lounge on the 96th floor. For the slightly inflated price of a drink or appetizer, you can see incredible views of Lake Michigan and/or the... More

We used to live over the road from the Hancock Tower so saw these views every day. Very lucky, very spoilt. Then we had to move sadly. So we came back to see the view and have a cocktail. The view of course never disappoints. But the cocktails. So dreadful!!! Watered down sweet and disgusting. I review cocktails so this... More

We came here for a drink to see the views at night. We were sat at a great table that was right at the edge of the bar. The views over the city are incredible! However, the bar was very crowded and loud. Drink prices were insanely high ($10 for a can of beer). The server we got was incredibly... More

It's a great view, but consider going to the 96th floor for cocktails and not dinner. A glass of wine is around $17, but you are paying for the view.

We visited the signature lounge on a Saturday evening. We had planned on getting there about an hour before sunset. When we got to the Hancock building, we had to wait in a long line before we get up the elevator to the lounge. Once we got to the lounge, there was another long wait to get a table. We... More

Skip the observation floor and head straight to the 96th floor for some awesome drinks and a gorgeous view. Ladies head to the women's room and see the views from here!

The place had a miraculous view, we went in the evening so the city looked amazing from our tables. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The Menu and the food was definitely tasty! And a big thanks to the friendly Waiters, who came to check up on us to see if we needed any extra table service, when we... More

Been to the Observation deck multiple times....well worth the $. Never show up, and hop in line to go sit in the lounge room. It's stuffy, overcrowded, small, with lousy views. I guess you need to reserve a table, b/c the signature room has 360 views, nice seating, good experience. Just make sure you don't walk up and ride the... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
