Fun rooftop bar right off of lakeshore. Definitely a bit loud and busy at night, but the food was good (limited menu).

The restaurant is located on the top floor of Hotel Lincoln. The view from the restaurant is excellent. The menu has few but enough dishes. The food is good, the service really nice and the view is great!

Although bitter cold outside, it was enjoyable to have a cocktail and enjoy the view without the high winds. Good, efficient staff. Knowledgeable. Prices are conducive to Chicago’s mark up. Romantic or a fun space to share with friends.
