Must See Place in Chicago: 96th Floor Lounge

96th Floor Lounge: Signature Room Chicago

Chicago is an incredible city worthy of anyone’s time to visit! The city is home to over 10 million people and is one of the most widely visited cities in the United States. While there are a number of things to do in Chicago, there is one place that stands apart from the others. The 96th floor lounge at Chicago’s John Hancock building is simply breathtaking. If you are looking for an incredible view of the city of Chicago while having a delicious alcoholic beverage, then this is the place for you!

Amazing Drinks & Views

At the 96th floor lounge you can sit at tables that line up with windows that give breathtaking views like these in the pictures. You can look north to the coastline with Lake Michigan observing the skyscrapers and coastline. You can also look out West to give a full picture of the suburbs that make Chicago such a gigantic metropolitan area!

The drinks are not too shabby either! With a wide selection of cocktails and mojitos you will not find yourself being thirsty. Simply order one or two drinks and sit for a while and take up the views. This is hands down my favorite place to view the city of Chicago and a place I recommend for everyone! Here is a link to the drink menu. The prices are a bit high, but where else can you get views like this? I certainly think at least one drink is worth it.

Where is it?

The 96th floor lounge is located in downtown Chicago at 875 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611. Nearby you can find abundant shopping with stores such as Gucci, Bloomingdales and Louis Vuitton. The famous ‘Water Tower Place’, a popular Chicago shopping mall is also located next door.

In order to reach this spot I would recommend a shopping day on Michigan Avenue. Michigan Avenue is also called ‘The Magnificent Mile’ due to the sheer number of stores that are lined up along the street. You can find stores ranging from Uniqlo, Victoria’s secret, and Boss for clothing to Burberry, Tumi and also some upscale chocolate shops. Simply take the Metra train into the city from whichever suburb you may be in or take the CTA to the city and then walk around.
