If you’re lucky enough to be in Chicago during the warm months, hie thee to the rooftop of Hotel Lincoln, stat. Grab a chair or couch and a glass of rosé and gaze out on Lake Michigan to the east, or the lights of the city all around you. I’ll warn you that service here is less than amazing, the wine glasses are plastic, and the crowd can border on pretentious, particularly after dark. But even with that, I’m still giving it two stars, all for the view. (Note: an enclosed portion of the rooftop is open year round, but the main reason to go is when it’s warm enough to stand or sit outside).
