Elevator up, take pics, elevator down. No drinks. »

Any swanky bar atop a tall building is always going to charge $9 for a beer. You pretty much have to expect it. The trick with this one is that there's no obligation to drink (at least not when I went).

So you head up, pretend like you're about to order a drink, snap some photos and head back to street level where you will find drink specials at any number of other chicago bars...

A tourist spot, but at least you can drink too! »

I agree with past reviews that this is a tourist spot. But every time I have a friend in town we go to the sig lounge for one drink and they love it. Best view is definitely the women's bathroom. And with the Sig lounge you may pay $13 for drink, but you pay the same at the sears tower for the view and no drink. I say go for one drink between 5 and 9 on a week day and enjoy the sunset, a great view, and then head out to another spot. Lastly beware of the servers - they have quite the attitude.

Cool View. Lame Spot. »

Server was rude and beers were like $9. Great views. Do what of the other reviewers say and ride the elevator to check out the view and go grab something to eat and drink somewhere else.

Truly, great views are to be had at the Signature Lounge - but this should not be one of your "destination spots" in Chicago. If you must cop the photo op, take the elevator up to Sig Lounge (at night it's nice) and mooch a free snapshot from the Ladies bathroom. I'm totally serious, the view is great and you can avoid waiting for a table and feeling like you look un-swanky.

After your 5-minute foray, take the elevator back down to earth (like a true Midwesterner) and go see a live rock show.

sure it's touristy. »

and hard to get a table to enjoy your drink. and hard even to find window space sometimes without feeling like an ass. but it's worth it if you're into city views. it's so great that, on any given weekend night, you'll likely here at least one marriage proposal. from here, in the middle of the city, you can see the skyscrapers suddenly rising out of incredibly flatness for miles around, and it is something.

the restaurant is good, but way overpriced because of the views - if you have to eat, go for lunch when it's more affordable and you can enjoy the sight of planes flying lower than you. otherwise, just go for one overpriced drink at the lounge upstairs.
