Amazing views of the Bean & Millenium park. Would recommend booking for lunch or dinner if you're planning to eat, otherwise you can just walk in for a drink or 2. Cocktails are delicious and the bar staff are always on their A game. Can't...More

shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

It’s more of fine dining with a bar. I don’t think kids are excluded but I doubt you’ll find a kids menu. Lots of people stopping for a drink after work.

No. It's on the roof of the Chicago Athletic Club and I'm sure they don't allow pets.
