Rooftop Season Kicks-off in Chicago

With summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to soak up the sun at some of Chicago’s most popular rooftops. From a chic cocktail lounge to a gorgeous garden in the clouds, with Reserve you’ve got lots of elevated options for any day (or night) of the week. Here are a few of our favorite spots to enjoy great drinks and bites over spectacular views of the city.




Celeste is a modern interpretation of the classic American cocktail lounge and supper club. Multiple levels are reminiscent of a glamorous, turn-of-the-century Chicago — a time of spirited architectural innovation and a sense of new cultural pinnacles. A well-versed, thought-provoking beverage program invites guests to enjoy deep, modular cocktails alongside a versatile wine list and craft brews. Sophisticated, seasonal American small plates and entrees are as straightforward as they are delicious.




Homestead On The Roof takes a farm-fresh, seasonal approach to its dinner, desserts and hand-crafted cocktails. Small-production wines by the bottle and glass, a weekly rotating craft brewery and a highly curated 100-bottle spirits list rounds out the drinks menu. An 80-seat outdoor rooftop patio sits near a 1,000 square foot organic rooftop garden, two vertical hanging gardens and dozens of planter boxes filled with vegetables, fruits and herbs.




The Promontory is a restaurant and music venue that offers modern hearth cooking in a relaxed atmosphere. The menu includes a mix of small plates and heartier fare highlighting wood-fired and oven-cooked dishes. Refreshing drafts, bottled beers and craft cocktails are available to pair with food or to enjoy by themselves. Given the easygoing ambience, groups of friends large and small can look forward to great nights of listening, dining and drinking.

So grab some friends and get started on those warm-weather rooftop evenings. When it comes to dining out on Reserve this summer, the sky’s the limit.

Happy dining,
Kris Linney, Reserve Chicago
