  • Great asian food

Located at the 4th floor of the exceptional five star luxury hotel The Peninsula Chicago, Shanghai Terrace is a lovely rooftop terrace and (as the name might give away) a great Chinese restaurant.

Here you find an indoor restaurant with a 1930s supper club décor, and a stylish decorated terrace with dining tables, cabanas and comfy lounge sofas along with cool views of the downtown sky scrapers.

A visit at Shanghai Terrace is really something for the taste buds. Voted "The Best Chinese Restaurant in Chicago", you can enjoy a wide range of fantastic dishes for both lunch and dinner.

And the drink list is just as impressing, with Asian beers, premium sake and specialty cocktails that are both tasty and beautiful to look at.

With great service and a pleasant atmosphere, Shanghai Terrace is close to the perfect rooftop bar Chicago, and on a sunny afternoon this terrace really is a lovely setting. The only thing missing might be real breathtaking views.

Not surprising, the price tag is quite high, but well worth it. Reservations can be made for the indoor restaurant, but the outdoor roof terrace works on a first come, first served basis.

So be in good time, and remember that the Shanghai Terrace rooftop bar dress code is smart casual.
