The Deal: $3 Off Signature Cocktails
You can get $3 off signature cocktails at the Kennedy Rooftop in Wicker Park. Come for the cocktails, stay for the leafy-backdrop/neon sign you’ve been seeing all over your feed. Don’t forget your cute masks and those socially distant happy hour hashtags.
Having a cocktail on a rooftop during a Chicago summer feels like a reason to move here. And up until recently, hanging out on one during the winter seemed more like a location for the next season of Alone rather than a sensible spot to get together with friends. But The Kennedy in Wicker Park has heated, private, twinkly-lit domes that you can rent out. Depending on the package, you get booze, mixers, appetizers, and fruit, plus they also have curling. Have drinks, stay warm, enjoy a great view of the skyline, and perhaps be the first person in the city to spot an impending Snowpiercer-esque arctic blast.
The Kennedy is on top of the Hyatt in Wicker Park, and since you’re not literally in the skyline, you have a nice view of downtown Chicago. It also has a long menu full of cocktails and bar food, and plenty of tables and couches spaced far apart for social distancing.
Well, we officially have a brand new rooftop that we can actually visit. The Kennedy is on top of the Hyatt in Wicker Park and has a long menu full of cocktails and bar food. And since Chicago is allowed to eat and drink outside, you can actually go here and check it out.
