And Then, Cindy’s Rooftop

And Then, Cindy’s Rooftop

I wasn’t feeling too hot last Sunday and unfortunately “not feeling to hot” has been January’s M.O. I’d been battling a cold for over 10 days, since Tricia and I returned from Christmas break on the 1st. And then, Cindy’s Rooftop.

Sunday at Cindy’s

I spent the balance of last weekend in the apartment save for a Sunday reprieve with Tricia. I needed a shave and a shower, and I needed to get outside even though it was all but 15 degrees. We hit a small lot of places throughout the day and took it real easy at each spot. I indulged in water and coffee, and the occasional hot toddy, the best hailing from Cindy’s.

Located at the rooftop of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel across from Millennium Park, Cindy’s is a prime spot for taking in what Chicago has to offer, both outside and inside. The outdoor patio is epic, the menus are on point and the atmosphere is great. Although it was very cold outside it was relatively – surprisingly – silent inside. For reference, on a nice day you could expect to wait at least an hour or two (or more) for a table if you don’t have a reservation.

I didn’t mind the Silence this day though. My head did just fine without the noise and I didn’t feel like too big of an imposer taking photos all over the place (side note – EVERYONE takes photos here). Not to mention I felt quite a bit better when I left … perhaps the signature Sweet Poison had something do to with it.

Below are a few shots of the interior and one from the patio of the Bean in its natural habitat.

If you’re in Chicago and you like food and drink in a well, naturally-lit environment that’s top choice for people-watching and stellar city views, Cindy’s is your bet. Just be sure to make a reservation!
