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.
Chicagoans love dining outside when the weather is nice, and even when it’s only tolerable. The best outdoor restaurants in Chicago provide plenty of opportunities for people watching and enjoying the bustle of the neighborhood, but sometimes you want to enjoy the weather without constantly being interrupted by passing traffic or people walking by on their phones. Luckily the hidden patios in Chicago offer a respite from the urban environment, including secluded rooftop restaurants and enclosed beer gardens where you can soak up the sun in relative tranquility—sometimes, it's like being transported to another place.
