Raised | An Urban Rooftop Bar, located in the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, delivers unparalleled service and breathtaking views of Chicago. Experience the indoor/outdoor bar featuring an open rooftop deck and private VIP greenhouse overlooking Chicago’s skyline.
The name Raised, refers to many conceptual layers: the iconic bascule drawbridges that line the Chicago river, the river locks that raise the water for passing boats and the elevation of the urban rooftop location. The name also draws inspiration from the urban gardener and the DIY hop grower, brew master or wine maker with the notion of raised garden beds, hop plants and grape vines.
We are excited to have Raised | An Urban Rooftop Bar serving tasty treats at StyleChicago.com’s Resolutions 2019 at the W Chicago – City Center on Friday, January 18, 2019.
With an industrial aesthetic, eclectic style and raw finishes, Raised welcomes locals and guests to enjoy the indoor/outdoor bar, open roof deck and private outdoor areas overlooking the scenic downtown Chicago River view.
