Everyone enjoyed the sights especially at sunset. New visitors in town and family spent the early evening event. Always breath taking views. Long gazing views of everyday things from 96 floors up while enjoying a drink with friends.

After thorough research online, my friend and I decided to head to the Signature Lounge rather than buy tickets to the 360 Chicago tourist attraction. It's free to go to the lounge, so we hopped in line around 6:40 PM on a Saturday and got...More

Great experience! The layout was cozy, casual, and unpretentious. Went with a group for Happy Hour drinks around Sunset. Being a cloudy day, the lines to get up the elevator were minimal. Although many would pay for such a view, there is no cost to...More

If you've been to the John Hancock observatory deck, then you should go to the Signature Lounge as well. You can't beat the view from the observatory deck or at this place. It's all breathtaking. We were lucky to get a table by the window...More

You can go to the signature lounge on the 96th floor. For what you pay for admission to 360, you can get a drink and/or food and sit to enjoy the sites. Drinks are about $17.

Even if heights make you a little squeamish, this is so worth it. On a clear day, you can see for miles while you are enjoying a really good drink. No one seems to mind if you get up and move about to get a...More

I would rather have gone in the evening. We were there around 5:30/6pm. The room was filled with families with young children. Most were very well behaved. But there were two young (2 to 3 years old) CLIMBING the walls!!! We went into the ladies...More

We decided to eat at the John Hancock for lunch so that we could get the view without paying for the observation deck. When we got to the top, you have a choice of eating either at the restaurant on the 95th floor, or the...More

We had the Margherita Flatbread pizza and a few cocktails. We were seated very close to the window and then got a chance to move to a table next to the window. It is on the 96 floor right above the restaurant. The view is...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

When you say if it is necessary for everyone to drink, I assume you mean alcohol. No one is ever required to drink alcohol anywhere in the US. Lots of drink options that are non-alcoholic are on the menu - just pricey, but... More

We were in the lounge at night time. It is kind of a happening place, so I doubt it closes early.
