I was recently downtown for a business meeting. I wanted to enjoy the weather while downtown. I decided I wanted to go and have lunch on a rooftop lounge.
The rooftop lounge that I chose was Terrace 16 at Trump Tower in Chicago.
When you arrive at Trump Tower in downtown Chicago it feels so classy and upscale.
The rooftop lounge is located on the 16th floor, hence why the name of the lounge is called Terrace 16.
The views are second to none. One of the benefits of Chicago is the beautiful rooftop views of the skyscrapers.
The dress code was a mixed bag. There were some people that were dressed in suits and some that were dressed in shorts and a T-shirt.
The menu offers more high-end food items. The items on the menu are also very pricey to be expected.
I ordered the wagyu sliders that came with large wedge fries.
My friend ordered the Terrace burger, which comes on a blackened charcoal bun.
The Wagu sliders were cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious.
My friend's Terrace burger was also very juicy and good. The burger is quite thick and the charcoal bun is obviously done for looks, rather than offering anything to the burger's flavor.
I could literally sit on this terrace for hours with the fantastic breeze coming off of Lake Michigan.
The nice weather did not last more than a couple of hours. It started to drizzle so it was time for us to leave.
I will say that the views from Terrace 16 are some of the best in the city of Chicago. When sitting you can see the super exclusive hard reservation to acquire London House across the way.
I was able to get the same views without making reservations months in advance. I also did not have to put up with the overly pompous behavior that I would get at London House.
I fully recommend anyone that is staying in Chicago or even lives in the suburbs to head out and check out Trump Tower.
The food was delicious, but as I stated before it was very pricey. The hamburger was $30 and the Wagu sliders were around the same.
I give Terrace 16 a rating of 8 out of 10. I highly recommend this place.
