EPIC SKY Low to the ground (it’s three stories up), high in energy. 112 W Hubbard St (312-222-4940). file under: and a steak with that, too


THE FOUNTAINHEAD Just when we thought this rooftop was never going to open… 1970 W Montrose Ave (773-697-8204). file under: beer geeks

TERRACE AT TRUMP Boozy pops, striking views, deep wallets. 401 N Wabash Ave (312-588-8600). file under: tourist temple
