I’m not a fan of drinking alone… But I’ll happily enjoy it if:
- It’s a good bar with fun bar staff to chat to
- There’s live music to enjoy
- A stunning view.
Tonight was the latter… 95 floors up(!) in the Hancock Building, Chicago. So high in fact that as you whizz up in the elevator my ears popped! It was after dark and with pretty much 360° views it was spectacular. Never has a G’n’T tasted so good. I even timed it right to see a firework display over Navy Pier.
Day or night, top tip from the locals (and this was a suggestion made during the meet-up) is to skip the entrance fee for the viewing platform and instead spend that on a drink at Signature Lounge. I’d agree… It was so good I’m tempted to return tomorrow and do it again in the daylight!
