Roof on The Wit
May 11, 2018
A minimalistic and monochrome interior awaits you upon arrival, sparkling with crystal clear glassware, sophisticated table dressings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Stroll out onto the terrace and take in the awe-inspiring view of downtown Chicago, warmed by the delicate breeze of summer or the crackling fireplaces in winter when the retractable roof is closed to keep the biting cold at bay. Fancy taking things to the next level? Head to the ‘Hangover’ section of the bar, an area 27 floors up that is suspended over pure air. It may not be for the fainthearted, but the rush of it is worth the fear.
Mixing a damn good drink is something that the mixologists at ROOF on theWit know how to do well. Treat yourself to any number of the tantalising tipples on offer, whether it be the feisty ’Roof on Fire!’, which is a house-made shot of Bonded bourbon, Roots Tentura, agave nectar, cinnamon and honey, or the whimsical ’Daiquiri Formerly Known as Prince’, containing Bacardi Maestro de Ron, St. Germaine, violet sugar and lemon along with a generous drip of ‘Purple Rain’. Chuckle at the humorous house cocktails, including ‘Non-stop Twitter Comebacks’ and ‘Below Average Word Play’ as you enjoy the view from the top of the world.
