Dual rooftop setting in an Art Deco masterpiece.
At the fabulous hotel The Robey, set in a 203-feet tall Art Deco building formerly known as the Northwest Tower, you find a dual and diverse rooftop setting, where one venue is a bit higher than the other.
Starting from the 'bottom', which in this case is the 6th floor, home to the relaxing poolside rooftop bar Cabana Club. Open during the warmer months, the rooftop comes with both inside and outside seating, but since it is a summer hot-spot, the outside is where you want to be.
The terrace is equipped with plenty of comfy lounge furniture, dotted around the triangle-shaped rooftop pool. While swimming is only for hotel guests, anyone can lounge poolside with drinks, bites and lovely 180° views of the Chicago skyline.
The Cabana Club menu includes plenty of refreshing sips, from frozen cocktails and spritzers to buckets of beers, as well as light finger food. Everything you need for hot and trendy poolside hours under the Chicago sun.
Moving up to the 13th floor and The Up Room, The Robey's other rooftop venue, which is a more sleek and year-round destination compared to the glittering pool terrace below.
With an envious location atop the tallest building for miles, the views over the skyline and surroundings are amazing, both through the panoramic windows inside, and from the outside terrace.
Intimate and quite exclusive, with just about 40 seats, The Up Room is a sophisticated night spot, where the views are complemented with crafted and creative signature cocktails, selected wines and bubbles, prime spirits and a few snacks.
