The Terrace at the Conrad Chicago Hotel
This has to be one of the best places I've been for drinks all summer. The Terrace at the Conrad Chicago Hotel is one of those places you check out then immediately wonder how you didn't know about it before. It's outdoors (terrace), conveniently located (521 N. Rush), has a pretty good drink list and a nice view (only on the 5th floor but surrounded by well-known buildings above and the din of Michigan Avenue shoppers below). If you're looking to go somewhere with tons of people, it's not ideal. If you're looking for somewhere you can chat with a few friends, it's perfect. I'm pretty behind on such topics... so chances are, you've already been. If you haven't, you have to check it out while the weather's still nice.
