Live in the Chicago area? Planning a visit soon? Definitely stop bynew Drumbar, a bar on the rooftop of the Raffaello Hotel downtown for a fun cocktail and gorgeous views inside and out. The decor is perfect blend of chic and formal. Upon exiting the elevator on the 17th floor directly into the bar, an ambiance of soft lighting contrasts the dark tones of walls and furnishings.
Before perching yourself in the lovely Great Room at one of the 2 bars or plush leather sofa, there’s more…follow the checkered floor hallway illuminated by our Pentagon Pendants. Shape of the seeded glass pendants bounces light off the gorgeous traditional architecture.
The vibrant kelly green hallway leads you to an outdoor lounge patio with a breathtaking skyline view day or night. there are white chairs facing a fire pit. The wait staff is dressed in stylish black outfits they call uniforms, but we all wanted one for ourselves. The location, decor, delish drinks, savory food, and service all place Drumbar and Raffaello Hotel on our highly recommended and definitely revisit soon lists!
