Located in the heart of Chicago, just a block of Michigan Avenue, the fantastic hotel The Gwen comes with an equally fantastic rooftop bar, called Upstairs at the Gwen.
Both indoor lounge and a stylish, open-air terrace. Set five floors up, you do not get the most panoramic views, but rather cool ones over the majestic buildings surrounding the terrace.
Luxurious and trendy in decoration, the Gwen rooftop comes with umbrella-covered lounge spots, over sized lamps and a really cool fire-table as a central part of the terrace.
The rooftop bar offers a great selection of seasonal, inventive and well-crafted cocktails, taking names from Chicago neighborhoods and other iconic landmarks in the city. There is also a fine selection of wines, beers on draft and a set of sharable small plates.
While the indoor lounge at Upstairs Chicago is open from early morning to late at night, the outdoor terrace also has pretty generous opening hour. So it is a great spot for both relaxing and sunny afternoon cocktails, as well as stylish pre- or post dinner drinks. All served in a sophisticated and friendly atmosphere.
Not only a summer destination, as Upstairs at the Gwen turns into a winter wonderland during the colder months. The fire pits are complemented with both a curling rink and a cosy cabin, and the rooftop menu also includes warming and hot seasonal cocktails.Last updated: March 5, 2020
