Location…Went in on a Tuesday night around 7pm. Waited 5 minutes on the elevator ride. Put our name in for a table and were sat within 10 minutes. A steady flux of people came and went, mostly for the view I think. I’ll get to...More

Cindy's has an amazing view and great drinks! The drinks are pricey but the view is well worth it! Would definitely eat here next time.

flavor. This central business district boasts

shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

I don't think they have a happy hour with special pricing. We went at 5:00pm and the place was packed. They are so popular that they don't need anything to draw people in.
