Overlooking the Chicago river is a new rooftop that should be on your al fresco list this summer.
On the third floor of the Renaissance Marriott is the new Raised Rooftop bar. Now, you’re probably going to ask, “a rooftop bar on the third floor?” Oh yes, you heard that right. Believe it or not, the bar is positioned perfectly on the third floor so that guests are ensured to have panoramic views of the Chicago river, without obstruction. We can’t argue with that logic!
We enjoyed small bites, signature cocktails, and plenty of mingling at the grand opening earlier this month. Raised has it all, and even has rosé on tap—yes way, rosé!
What’s even more exciting, is that Raised is debuting a brunch menu in June. Stay tuned for our review!
Until then, take advantage of the beautiful summer nights in Chicago and head to Raised for happy hour cocktails and a perfect view.
