We walked here because someone recommended their rooftop. This is a swanky bar up on top of a hotel. It was pretty empty, drinks over priced. Bummed to find out rooftop closed for season. We had one drink and left.

Yeah, we’ve all been to Cindy’s Rooftop and London House Rooftop. Lots of people with lots of noise and hard to even find a railing to get near, let alone a table. But, if you want a quieter more relaxed atmosphere with a fabulous view, The Gwen Rooftop is a must do. Our server, Dymond, couldn’t have been better. Best service we had the whole time we were in Chicago. And never tried rushing us out. I hate to recommend The Gwen because I want to keep it a secret. But it was fantastic!

This is a great place to chill when staying at The Gwen. Eddie is especially a great host.. great wine and drink selection. And the food is always excellent. The last time I ate here I ordered the brussel sprouts extra crispy and they were amazing!! Have had their Caesar, Pork Sliders are to die for, and their Chicken Wings with mole rub. Also, as a female traveler, it's a comfortable spot. Only great things to say!!

Great roof top, with very good service and drink menu. It is hard to get a big party in, but if patient you will enjoy.
