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? Summer in Chicago has 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 hotels in the Loop, or steal 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, after all, so make the most of the season at the best rooftop bars in Chicago.
