Signature Lounge in the John Hancock offers people a way to parlay the regular price of admission to 360 Chicago (formerly the Observatory) into a drink—and by “people” we mean upwards of an astounding 5,000/day, mostly tourists. Of course, locals sometimes venture skyward to the dizzy heights, and if you like having your civic pride stroked by the oohs and ahhs of out-of-towners amazed at the undeniable beauty of our cityscape, this is where you want to get hammered.
