Year round


An urban rooftop bar that delivers a relaxed luxury atmosphere and fantastic views of Chicago.

On the 3rd floor of the trendy Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, right across from the Chicago River, you find Raised Bar, an urban rooftop bar. This is a popular place for those who place high value in superb service and beautiful (and close) city and Chicago River views.

Raised welcomes both locals and guests to enjoy the outdoor/indoor bar, private outdoor areas and a stylish open roof deck. The terrace has bar seating around the edge, perfect for people watching, accompanied with some very comfy lounge sofas and fire pits.

The rooftop menu consist of food inspired by classic American bar food with a twist, served as both solo dishes and large plates to share. There is also a drink menu with a large selection of beer, wine and creative crafted cocktails, also available as single drinks or pitchers to share.

With great service, a fun and relaxed ambience and a perfect location, it is no surprise that Raised rooftop bar is very popular. And they work on a first-come, first-serve basis, so make sure to be on time to catch a good spot.
