In my opinion, nothing goes better with a good drink than a good view. If you’re ever in Chicago (whether it’s your first time or 100th time visiting), The Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the John Hancock building offers unparalleled views of this breathtaking city that you should definitely check out. Growing up close to Chicago, I have been to this city many times but had never experienced it like this before. If it is your first time in Chicago, I highly recommend seeing the city from above to really appreciate how amazing it is. The Signature Lounge is a cheap alternative to paying for the tourist trap attractions like 360 Chicago or The Ledge in Willis Tower. All you have to pay for is one drink (the beers start around $8), but you’ll most likely want to stay for more. If, like me, you’ve been to Chicago many times before, this view never gets old, and seeing it from The Signature Lounge made me feel like I was seeing it for the first time all over again (pure bliss). The drinks menu also features local craft beers which make you feel even more connected to the panoramic views in front of you. I couldn’t even tell you if I got tipsy off the alcohol or off the spectacular view, but I was feeling good! I can’t recommend this place enough. Insider tip for the ladies: the girl’s bathroom has possibly the best views in the house.
