Year round


Swanky cocktail lounge in the heart of Chicago, with breathtaking rooftop views over downtown.

Apogee Lounge is the second highest rooftop bar throughout Chicago, located at the 26th floor of the fabulous Eurostars Magnificent Mile, right in the heart of the city and a couple blocks of the Magnificent Mile.

The rooftop used to be called Vertigo Sky Lounge, but had a refurbish and name change in 2016.

The Apogee Lounge is a real swanky and trendyChicago rooftop cocktail bar / nightclub. The stylish indoor lounge, complete with a long marble bar and floor-to-ceiling windows, extends outdoor to a lovely terrace, offering sleek lounge sofas, a fire pit and really cool views of the Chicago skyline.

The number one feature up here is however the cocktails. Amazing creations, served in seashells and giant glass mushrooms, and made to perfection with the very best ingredients.

To use the words of Apogee: "cocktails are given the same level of detail as a michelin star restaurant". And given the quality, cocktails at the rooftop actually comes at a very decent price.

Apogee rooftop bar is open to the public 5 days a week, and it is a popular place so reservations are highly recommended. Come early night to enjoy relaxing and amazing cocktails with skyline views.

As the night wears on, the setting up here is more of a nightclub, with a great vibeand a crowd ready to dance the night away.

The Apogee Lounge dress code is smart casual.
