Chicagoans don’t get enough opportunities to check out our city from above. One of the best aerial views is from the Signature Lounge located on the ninety-sixth floor of the Hancock building. The sights are best after sundown when the skyline lights up from Navy Pier to the West Loop. Pull up a seat and enjoy the view with one of their specialty cocktails like the Lake Shore Martini, Chicago’s Best Sidecar, or Magnificent Mile Manhattan. Try and name our busy lit-up streets and expressways as they disappear into the horizon.
