Time Out says

Looking for a new spot to go dancing? The 7th-floor rooftop bar atop the ever-trendy Ace Hotel Chicago has rebranded from its previous concept (a laid-back, reservation-free hangout called Waydown) to Little Wild, which centers around its expansive dance floor and a regular lineup of DJ nights, takeover parties, album drops and more. Guests can soak up skyline views at the open-air patio or head inside to an indoor banquette and dance floor, where nightlife director Natalie Figueroa (The Silver Room, Y.G.B Portland) has curated a lengthy roster of one-off parties and recurring programming; The Rhythm Method, for instance, spins disco, dance, house and other off-beat records from the Buenört Collective every fourth Sunday of the month. 

When you're not hitting the dance floor, settle in with a cocktail from the bar's drink list, which skews toward lighter, more summery fare like Polyester Bride (vodka, strawberry, basil syrup and ginger beer), No Name (bourbon, amaro Nonino, lemon, honey) and a frozen Painkiller, plus a selection of wine and beer on tap. Pair your drinks with bar snacks—ranging from spiced nuts to more filling beef sliders—and you're all set to dance the night away.
