One of my favorite things about the warmer months is getting to relax and enjoy a meal and/or drinks at a restaurant patio or rooftop bar. There is just something so alluring to me about grabbing drinks with family and friends outdoors surrounded by great scenery, and I think I just came across the perfect rooftop bar to do exactly that this summer.

Not only does this bar offer great food and drinks, a SPECTACULAR view of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan, but it's officially the largest rooftop bar in the World according to the Guinness Book of World Records;

The largest rooftop bar measures 4,859.78 m² (52,310 ft² 41 in²), and was achieved by Offshore Rooftop & Bar (USA), at Chicago’s Navy Pier, in Chicago, Illinois, USA, on 20 June 2019.

Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you the best part, Offshore Rooftop & Bar is open year-round, in all kinds of weather, thanks to its collapsible floor-to-ceiling windows!

I think we've now established that Offshore Chicago is a great place to grab a cocktail or two, but it's also a great place to grab a meal, (see the menu here), host your next event, or better yet, wedding!
