Frequently Asked Questions

Discover exciting outdoor rooftop party venues in Chicago

Summer is the best season for outdoor events in the Windy City and rooftop parties are a surefire way to enjoy an evening with friends. Chicago skyscrapers offer romantic views of the surrounding urban landscape. Many restaurants, bars, clubs, and hotels offer rental space as rooftop party venues as a result.
Open-air event spaces in Chicago like rooftops are a great way to elevate a bar mitzvah, graduation party, bachelor party, or birthday. The venues are also popular for corporate meetings and team building events, meant to be more relaxed and social. Many spaces even come themed, with Hawaiian, pirate, or pop culture motifs. Which Chicago rooftop party venue is right for your next shin-dig?

The best Chicago outdoor BBQ party venues

Planning an outdoor BBQ party doesn't mean you have to hold it at home. Especially if your backyard is too small or the HOA won't allow it. Try renting space at an outdoor venue instead. Some are free while others require reservation in advance. Check up on your local spots guidelines, too. Many public parks and beaches may not allow parties - or only allow them at certain times of the day and year.
One of our favorite recommendations is the UIC Picnic Grounds. The grounds are spacious and easy to reserve. Located just blocks away from the Loop District, skyline views provide the perfect backdrop for the grassy outdoor venue. The landscaping is immaculate, with restroom facilities on site. It's a simple matter to bring along your own barbecue for hotdogs, steaks, and burgers with friends.

Choosing where to host a party outdoors in Chicago

If you want an outdoor BBQ party venue that takes place on a rooftop, there's no better choice than Navy Pier's Offshore Rooftop. This restaurant sits next to the Pier's Festival Hall and is the largest rooftop deck in the entire United States. The venue provides 36,000 square feet of space, including seven fire pits and a culinary staff trained in fine California cuisine and craft cocktails. The perspective Offshore Rooftop provides is easily the best in the city, with the Lake Michigan shore immediately visible to the east. And to the west you have an unmatched view of the Chicago skyline.
The Utopian Tailgate, located in the Old Town Triangle, is a tailgating themed bar that offers space for up to 300 guests. Giant Jenga, disco dancing, and drinking games take place both inside and outdoors. Their rooftop venue is cheerfully appointed, with vibrantly colored furniture, hanging plants, and lights strung up for evening parties. Once summer arrives you're
Both Utopia and Offshore provide a delicious menu, too, so you don't even need to hire catering or do your own cooking. All that's left is for you to have fun with your guests and enjoy summer's arrival.
