VU Rooftop Bar - rooftop bar in Chicago

  • 2 terraces & 3 bars
  • Year-round
  • Panoramic views
  
                        

Located in the South Loop, 22 floors above the bustling McCormick Place, VU Rooftop Bar is quite a new addition to the Chicago rooftop scene, opening in fall of 2018. And the 13,000-square-foot rooftop bar (or concept, as they call it) has a lot to offer.

Up here you find a stylish indoor lounge, two rooftop terraces, three bars and some amazing and panoramic views over both the city skyline and Lake Michigan.

Swanky, modern and spacious, the rooftop lounge is equipped with equally comfy bar stools and lounge sofas, set by cool fire-pit-tables, creating that extra golden touch.

From the rooftop bar(s) you can enjoy a locally driven beverage program, including a cocktail menu broken down by spirit, like the Rum #3 with coconut, cherry lime and yuzu sake.

Chef Nolan Narut also offers a wide range of dishes, served as generous portions perfect to share during evenings, and as rooftop brunch during the weekends. From Peking Duck Tacos to Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Belgian Waffle.

Head high above the South Loop and enjoy relaxing lounge vibes and happy hour 4-6pm on weekdays, or later at night and weekends for a more vibrant atmosphere. Just note that this is an upscale entertainment destination, and the Vu Rooftop Bar dress code is business causal.

Open and available year round, thanks to both the indoor lounge and some cool rooftop igloos during the colder months, the VU Rooftop Bar also holds several spaces available for private events. Including a karaoke room.
