We went for a couple drinks here before the White Sox Game.we arrived about 6:30 pm and the Doorman said its about a 25 minute wait since we didn't have reservations.We managed to get a card from him saying go to the Dive Bar and have a drink and come up at time on card.The Dive Bar is right inside and used to be a Swimming Pool.You can have some Drinks while you wait and bring your Drinks up to the Rooftop.Very busy up there and go early to get a good spot by the railing for the best view.There are also several Picnic Table like tables to have Dinner at that would be great.

We did not stay in the hotel but paid a visit to cindy's rooftop restaurant. It offers beautiful views over millenium park and lake michigan combined with a nice selection of food and drinks. Be aware that Between 2:30 and 4 p a limited menu is served.

The atmosphere at the bar is incredible. The service at both bars were great. Let alone the view of Lake Michigan was amazing. Definitely try to go before 3:00pm to catch the sunlight. It's called the Windy City for a reason.

Maybe during the day or at dusk this place is a location not to be missed. At 10:30 pm at night it wasn't so great. All of the railings on the outer deck were full of old wine glasses and spit out lemons and it was disgusting. The view over Grant Park is fine but really at night all you can see are lights.

Highly recommend you come when you can see the different buildings in Grant Park and on the Lakeshore and enjoy the view of the lake itself.

We also did not order any food so we cannot make any comments on that aspect.

We have always wanted to come up to Cindy's for the view but always figured we would need to order food. This Chicago trip, my son and I just popped in for a drink in the afternoon. So glad we did! Of course, amazing views, but we did not feel out of place ordering only a drink and soaking in the great vistas. I can see how it would be mobbed at popular times, but Monday at 5pm was crowded, but you could still grab a spot on the railing. We'll definitely be back!
