Named for Time Out's late founder Tony Elliott, Tony’s is the crown jewel of Time Out Market Chicago. The cozy all-season rooftop bar is decorated in vintage Time Out London covers, twinkling lights and handsome wood beams that stretch the length of the room. The space is anchored by a sprawling bar that serves a curated selection of wines, beers and signature cocktails. If the sun is shining, wander outside to take in skyline views and enjoy a meal on the breathtaking terrace.
Sweltering weather feels much more manageable when you're admiring skyline views with a drink in hand, don't you think? Warm days have arrived, which means it's time to lean into the season's heat and humidity at the best rooftop bars in Chicago. Grab a bite to eat at rooftop restaurants situated on terraces high above the street and inside downtown hotels, or get away to hidden patios and gardens for a cocktail away from the crowds—and of course, plan on indulging in a warm weather cocktail (or two, or three) from some of the city's best bar programs. We've only got a few beautiful months of warm weather to enjoy every year, after all, so make the most of the season at the best rooftop bars in Chicago.
