In a city of astounding views, everyone wants to be on top.
Bars, cafes, restaurants, and rooftops last year rose to the challenges presented by the fusion of the global pandemic and the bitter Chicago winter. The result was a wide variety of wonderful and warm outdoor dining spots across Chicago.
Options in all different shapes and sizes offered an array of ways to keep warm while enjoying the finest drinks and dishes Chicago has to offer. To find some of the very best of these, however, you had to look to the skies.
Following in the footsteps of Joy District and The Godfrey Hotel, London House Chicago last year launched an inaugural ‘Rudolph’s Rooftop’ winter experience at the hotel’s elegant tri-level rooftop bar and now it’s back for the second year running.
Guests will now find a winter wonderland high up on the 22nd floor of London House Chicago at 85 East Upper Wacker Drive. In addition to some of the most unique sweeping panoramic views of Chicago over-the-top Christmas decor, rentable outdoor igloos and holiday-themed cocktails are waiting to be enjoyed.
Heaters and blankets mean you can enjoy the fantastic panoramic views while staying warm and cozy whether you’re inside an igloo or out.
Holiday décor and festive fare provide the perfect setting for some extra-special photo ops and a range of house-made holiday cocktails offer some brilliant drinks to delve into in the process.
The spicy Ugly Sweater is a sensational fusion of Don Julio Blanco, mango, habanero, and orange but for those wanting to warm up, the Sleigh Wreck is served warm with Bullet Rye, Bailey’s Apple Pie, Earl Grey, cinnamon, and whipped cream. A Bad Santa meanwhile comes made from Zacapa 23 Rum, Crème de Banane, Carpano Antica, toasted coconut, and absinthe and a Naughty & Nice is a blend of Ketel One Peach Orange Blossom, Danica Rose, raspberry, hibiscus, and lemon.
The whimsical winter wonderland will be open through Monday, January 3rd, 2022 on the hotel’s famed 22nd level terrace. Igloos can be booked by emailing email@example.com.
