Forty-six floors above the Mag Mile, Mile High Cocktail Club beckons with travel-inspired cocktails and gorgeous cityscape views worth raising a glass to.
A selection of rotating bar snack offerings add to Mile High Cocktail Club’s appeal.
Chicago’s speakeasy scene abounds with basement bars and dark, hidden-away nooks, but Adorn Bar & Restaurant has turned the concept on its head with its new Mile High Cocktail Club (120 E. Delaware Place). In a converted corner suite on the 46th floor of Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, the chic space boasts all the trappings of a typical hidden bar—after a welcome drink in the concept’s “pre-departure lounge,” guests pass into the low-lit space through a classic London phone booth—but the setting itself is anything but typical: Jaw-dropping views make for mesmerizing eye candy for guests lounging on plush furniture and indulging in Seven Wonders of the World-themed libations like the Rose City (bourbon, black tea, rose water, date, sage and mint).
Mile High Cocktail Club draws an in-the-know mix of locals and visitors.
In short, it’s a speakeasy experience unlike any other in the city, complete with a ’60s Pan-Am vibe that harks back to Four Seasons’ roots as one of the great names of luxury travel.
Cocktails take inspiration from the Seven Wonders of the World.
“We hope to provide a taste of wanderlust to our eager explorers during their time in Chicago,” notes Ciara Merouan, the hotel’s director of public relations. Our advice? Make your reservations now, as this striking speakeasy will be open just until early April, when it will be converted to a luxury suite. Until then, Mile High Cocktail Club is one of the city’s top spots to raise a glass in style.
No other Chicago speakeasy comes close to matching the bar’s views.
