From a rooftop vantage point, Big Ten football fans can attain views of the ever-changing on-field action. Opening half an hour (Wrigley Field Rooftop Club) or an hour (Ivy League Baseball Club) before game time, the rooftops welcome fans to enjoy tasty game-day food (Wrigley Field, and Ivy League rooftop menus), draft beer, wine, soft drinks, desserts, and a constant chorus of hungry, field-goal-snagging seagulls circling overhead. Additionally, the rooftop bars offer speedy service, and several outdoor televisions ensure spectators see every grimace and interpretive touchdown dance.
- (It's a much better seat than it appears from inside the park.) There are 25 plasma-screen TVs (counting the suite) and the radio broadcast featuring WGN's Pat Hughes and Ron Santo is piped in. From the top (about 65 feet from street level), you can enjoy a nice view of the downtown skyline. – Mike Dodd, USA Today
- I had a terrific time at this rooftop with my boyfriend. The food selection was huge! . . . The staff is very friendly and made sure the facility was well-maintained from cleanliness to their stock of food. – Lauren P., Yelp
