Chicago's ROOF on theWit revealed its rooftop renovations with a grand re-opening party on July 23. Located 27 stories above the busy streets of Chicago, ROOF on theWit offers guests visual effects and views, savory flavors, unique customized scents and live music entertainment to captivate all of the senses.

The Gallery, ROOF's newly renovated open-air patio, features nine LED screens to make up the Artisan Wall, a 40-foot bar, comfortable lounge seating for guests to enjoy while viewing contemporary art and panoramic views of State Street and the Chicago River. Additionally, ROOF's Hangover space has been transformed into a blooming Rosé Garden. The space is surrounded by glass windows, offering generous views of Millennium Park and Lake Michigan.

“ROOF on theWit is in an iconic location, in the heart of the downtown loop, with panoramic views from the 27th floor that are very unique. Our retractable roof is temperature controlled and open year round in rain or shine,” says Beatriz Jara, director of events.

This iconic Chicago venue is accessible year-round for events ranging from 10 to 325 guests. The space has earned international acclaim for its unique design and entertainment, impressive skyline views and handcrafted cocktails and cuisine. 

"We are honored to be entrusted with once-in-a-lifetime experiences of our guests. From weddings to business receptions, rehearsal dinners and all the celebrations in between, being a part of a passionate team is the most rewarding thing and to host people’s life events on a daily basis is a responsibility that we take very seriously,” says Piers Smyth, director of restaurants & beverage.

ROOF on theWit boasts a unique ability to transform its space into a custom curated venue for any event. With a vast array of different art scenes, ROOF’s digital gallery undergoes a metamorphosis each day as ROOF transitions from a day to nightlife experience. From colorful art brush strokes to alluring geometric designs, ROOF has a vast array of designs to create a captivating experience. Also, digital screens can display curated or custom graphics for private events.

The new décor offers a blend of Spanish and Moroccan design elements and mosaics to create a summery Mediterranean vibe. The space incorporates pops of orange and vibrant, colorful patterns balanced with cool, neutral tones.

“In addition to aesthetics, we have an incredibly passionate team and innovative owner.  From front of house to back of house, our team is truly invested in hospitality," says Jara.

Located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, ACME Hotel is bringing the personality. Bold art, outstanding technology and a locale that reflects the neighborhood’s vibrant nightlife are just a few of the attractions.

 

This summer, the Chicago riverfront welcomed its newest restaurant: Pizzeria Portofino

The sun-drenched casual restaurant is filled with breezy decor that will instantly transport you to the Italian Riviera. Inside, guests dine amidst white-washed wood, colorful shutters, and playful striped booths as they look out onto the beautiful water and Chicago’s historic architecture outside.  

 

InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile has announced the launch of its Dive-In Movie series, a classic, child-friendly summer film series inside the hotel's historic indoor pool. Beginning at sunset every Saturday night through Labor Day, guests can grab a bag of freshly popped popcorn and complimentary inflatables to enjoy a full-length feature film projected on the hotel's 80-foot jumbo screen.
