What’s In It?

This title of ‘World’s largest rooftop bar’ was awarded to them by the Guinness World Records and rightly so. This bar offers an expansive space of 52,310.29 square feet. Previously, the record-holder was only 35,520.90 square feet. Offshore also boasts of a large capacity of hosting 1,000 people at one time.

They offer a stage for such gigs and other events like gaming. For those looking for something more exquisite, there is a glass-enclosed interior so guests can enjoy Offshore the year-round.

What’s More?

Speaking with WBBM, Bob Habeed, CEO of Maverick Hotels and Restaurants spoke of expansion, “This is the first of three phases of a project that we’ve undertaken at the Pier about a year ago. The rooftop bar is open, a year from now we’ll be opening a 222-room hotel.”  Here are 6 Exquisite Rooftop Restaurants Serving A Heritage View

Although Navy Pier is a family-friendly destination, Offshore is only open to customers over 21 years of age. Here, guests have options with two bars in the indoor space that offers wine, beer and cocktails. Enjoy the choicest delicacies selected from the sea and land including ceviche, crab roll, lobster deviled eggs, steak tartare and lamb and zucchini meatballs. As the summer sets in, Chicagoans will not only enjoy the summer breeze but also sip their drinks while looking at the skyline. And what better place to do so than Offshore? After all, we agree with Bob Habeed when he said, “You can’t beat the view.”  For a great view, Stay At The Terrace Resort To Witness Stunning Views Of The Himalayas
