Upscale Casual, Restaurant Group

Part of The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group

Apogee is the point in orbit at which an object is furthest from the earth. It is the ultimate climax and culmination of an idea or feeling. Apogee is our presentation of the ultimate high-point in the cocktail scene- 26 floors up in the iconic Dana Hotel & Spa, overlooking the heart of Chicago.

At our rooftop bar in Chicago River North, hospitality and cocktails are given the same level of detail as a michelin star restaurant. Apogee’s master mixologists deliver quality cocktails quickly and consistently in hand-blown glassware and custom ceramic vessels. We source produce, herbs, even flowers with the utmost care and we procure them daily.

Chicago based design firm blocHaus developed Apogee’s design concept by drawing inspiration from the evening cityscape of Chicago. Guests experience an opulent lounge and rooftop setting with plush textiles, classic materials used in new ways to create fluted and marble clad walls with brass inlay, contrasting with the playful nature of the exterior grassy rooftop bar; the perfect backdrop for Ben Schiller’s thematic and creative cocktails.

We innovate but we respect the classics. Apogee is a place to party and a place to appreciate incredible cocktails served by passionate professionals.
