ROOF on theWit Rooftop Bar in Chicago

Skyline, skyscrapers
Year round


Stylish rooftop lounge, 27 stories above it all.

On the 27th floor of the fantastic Hilton Hotel theWit Chicago you find this fancy rooftop bar, simply called ROOF.

Located right in the city center, offering a magical view of all the skyscrapers and the Chicago skyline, with the Bean at Millennium Park in one direction and a slice of the Chicago River in the other. And the views are available year round, thanks to an adjustable roof and infrared heaters.

The Roof on theWit is large in space (7.000-square-foot) and also comes with different types of settings depending on when you visit. Early night you can enjoy Neapolitan inspired pizzas made fresh in the hearth oven, along with crafted cocktails in a more relaxing lounge atmosphere.

Later on, especially on weekends, the mood changes towards what the ROOF is mostly famous for, namely beeing one of Chicago's top nightclubs. World known DJs create a great vibe that might best be described as a slice of Las Vegas in the midddle of Chicago.

The terrace has a stylish and chic décor, with long community tables and some more private lounge cabanas. And the crowd is usually as stylish as the décor, so 'dress to impress' is a good motto, as the ROOF on theWit dress codes is smart casual. Also, make reservations or be in good time, since the ROOF is a very popular place.

Apart from great parties every weekend, the ROOF rooftop bar usually also host different weekday events, from 'Movie Mondays' to 'Champagne Thursdays', often including live music.
