    Signature Room Bar

    by river_plate_94 Written Mar 7, 2004

    At the top of the John Hankok Center is the Signature Room Bar and Resturant. I recommend the bar at night. The drinks are expensive but the view is fantastic. Be sure to go before 9PM.

    You can get good views of the Chicago skyline from Navy Pier. Here you can see the John Hancock Center against the sky.

    Well, visit the Hancock Observatory, at 1000 feet how high do you want? Marvellous views on a clear day, unbelievably cold outside on the skywalk!

    it's the big black one!

    Trink a coctail at about 4 p.m. or have a lunch...
    Try Chicago's Signature Punch - it costs $12 (with tax and tip), but it's really worth it.

    John Hancock Center
    The most recognizable Chicago high-rise, and the world's tallest mixed-use building. It is Chicago's 3rd tallest building and has an open air observatory.

    My oldest boy got a kick out of looking at the view from the John Hancock Building on Michigan Avenue. The view from the Sears Tower would probably be similar.

    Another view of the city.
    That's the John Hancock Tower, the black building in the far left background.

    Go to the bar at the top of the John Hancock building.
    It's free and the view is fabulous.
    The John Hancock building gives you a great view of the city and the lake.

    Highest Bar In the City

    Go to the bar on the 96th floor of the Hancock building instead of the observatory. Spend your $10 on a drink or an appetizer.
    Beautiful views of the city in all directions.

    Take a break from your busy shopping on the Michigan Ave. Take the elevator from Hancock building to 96th floor and have a drink with a spectacular view.
