Rooftop lounges allow people to enjoy drinks while smelling fresh air, soaking up sun, and gazing at rappelling Batmans. Enjoy the upper outdoors with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale American fare and drinks at Market Bar Chicago.
Market, which boasts multiple levels of sports-bar dining and a rooftop lounge, serves a menu of upscale American fare and specialty cocktails. Rev idling stomachs with playfully presented items, such as crunchy popcorn shrimp tossed with parmesan, truffle oil, and freshly popped popcorn nestled in an iconic popcorn box ($12), or the Bench Warmer, three succulent grilled New Zealand lamb lollipops ($14). The Great Bambino pizza stars sliced meatballs, sweet roasted peppers, caramelized onions, and alfredo sauce ($14), and the Bull burger ($12) crowns a juicy fresh-ground Black Angus patty with crisp peppered bacon, Merkts cheddar, and crispy onions. Sweet teeth can step up to the dessert plate for warm crepes and Nutella, or the triple threat of house-made cotton candy pumped up with caramel and cheddar popcorn.
Market's multiple TVs set up inside the main dining area hypnotize guests, and Mother Nature sings her siren song outside with three al fresco options. Smell the sun at the outside beer garden and sidewalk cafe, or climb up a rope ladder to the rooftop deck for a spectacular view of the Chicago skyline and tipples such as the Darryl Strawberry, a mix of Three Olives berry vodka, cranberry juice, sour mix, and Sprite.
Market restaurant and sports bar caters to a wide audience, courting die-hard sports fans with numerous flat-screen televisions—both indoors and out—and a complimentary shuttle to all United Center sports games, as well as wooing trendy diners with a menu of artfully plated eats. Its starters and entrees combine American classics with fun and elegant ingredients, such as popcorn shrimp mixed with actual popcorn and a drizzling of truffle oil, mini Kobe corn dogs, or hummus crafted directly in the Market kitchen. In warm weather, its nearly 5,000-square-foot rooftop bar exposes patrons to a dazzling view of the Chicago skyline and allows for easier spaceship boarding.
