Right next to Lincoln Park, and on top of the hip Hotel Lincoln, you find the fantastic J. Parker rooftop bar. Here you get an absolutely stunning 360-degree view over both the Chicago skyline as well as Lake Michigan and Lincoln Park below.

The rooftop at the J Parker Chicago comes with an outdoor terrace of 140 seats, and an indoor lounge seating 55 persons. Both inside and outside is modern minimalistic in decor, with some greenery and a mix of bar stools, regular basket chairs and lounge sofas.

Seating is on a first come, first served basis, so it's a good idea to be on time to catch the best spots at the Hotel Lincoln rooftop.

The J Parker rooftop bar offers a quite small but good food menu, with smaller plates like 'Poke Tuna Nachos' and 'Thai Chili Chicken Wings', and some larger options like 'The J. Parker Burger'.

The drink menu is more filling, with a good selection of craft beer on cans, wines and some exciting signature cocktails named after exotic places. Make a boozy visit to 'Okinawa', 'Zanzibar' or maybe 'Tortuga'?

Regarding rooftop bars in Chicago, this is a perfect choice both for pre-dinner cocktails or catching up with some friends, enjoying the great cocktails and the even greater views. Or later at night, when the atmosphere is more vibrant and you want a full night out.
