Chicago City Lights
Watch the Chicago city lights come up as the sun goes down at the the Signature Lounge. While the Observatory on the 97th floor is a popular spot, you'll have an even more memorable experience lounging, cocktail in hand, overlooking the same skyline. The martinis here are a delicious complement to the view.

Cocktails and the Best View of Chicago
Every city has a building with great views and Chicago’s most famous is the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower. But a little Chicago secret is that the John Hancock building has better views and their Signature Lounge on the 96th floor has free admission so you can enjoy a cocktail while you take in the sights! My favorite time to visit is late afternoon for a happy hour Old Fashioned while the sun sets and the Chicago lights start to sparkle. It’s a great place to take visitors, it’s a great place for tourists, it’s a great place to start or end an evening but I wouldn’t bother with the food, which is overpriced for the quality and selection. The drinks are pricey but the view is truly worth it.
