Utopian Tailgate Rooftop Bar in Chicago

Pub grub
March - October


Never-ending rooftop partyscape and adult playground, sprinkled with skyline views.

Perched on top of the Second City Comedy Club in Old Town, Utopian Tailgate really puts a playful and colorful spin on the Chicago rooftop scene.

Dubbed a playground for grownups, the 10,000-square-foot indoor / outdoor venue comes with everything from swings, bungalows and eye-catching picnic tables to faux turf and lots of real greenery, all surrounded with fantastic views over the Chicago skyline.

Made for fun, chill vibes and a party that never ends year-round, here you can challenge your friends in putterball, super-sized jenga, giant connect-4, beer pong and plinko.

For the fun to keep on going, you need food and drinks, and Utopian Tailgate serves plenty of both. A curated menu of elevated pub grub is complemented with an extensive bar program. From table snacks, sliders and weekend brunch, to well-priced cocktails, a large draft selection and smoothies.

Grab your friends and head on up for some truly sky-high summer fun.
