As of today, September 28th, the iconic Signature Room has closed. The restaurant was located on the 95th floor of 875 North Michigan Avenue, formerly known as the John Hancock building.
A sign posted on the restaurant’s website cited “economic issues” as a reason for the “permanent” closing. The Signature Room has magnificent views of the city’s skyline, and as a local or visitor, it is something someone should do at least once in Chicago. However, that’s no longer a possibility.
Signature Room Closes
Owners Roman and Pyknis wrote the following message:
“After over three decades of creating cherished memories, it is with profound sadness that we announce the permanent closure of the iconic Signature Room at the 95th, effective Thursday, September 28, 2023.
For over 30 years, we have had the privilege and honor of serving Chicagoans and visitors from all over the world. Together, we’ve marked countless life moments – from heartwarming engagements to milestone anniversaries.
Unfortunately, after the closure of our city and restaurant due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been faced with severe economic hardship and the challenges have been greater than we anticipated.
These factors, beyond our control, have left us with no choice but to close our doors.
Though this chapter ends, our gratitude for your unwavering support remains steadfast. Every meal served, every toast raised, and every memory made was possible because of you. We are eternally grateful for the trust you placed in us to be part of your special moments.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate this unexpected challenge. We will do our best to reach out and address all questions.”
