Signature LoungeFree: All time

To get the best view of Chicago, the Sears Tower may be first to come to mind. But! Instead of paying $20 to go up the tower, you should hit up the Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Center building. There’s no entrance fee and the dress code is casual dress. A cocktail here runs at about $17 and a beer at $10. While you can get amazing views all around the lounge, the best are right off the elevators and from the women’s restroom. So if you’re a female and you’re broke, take the elevators up to the lounge, go to the restroom, take in the views, snap some photos and leave. Just saying…
