Celebrating Chicago’s Best Rooftops w/ 50% off!
We recently asked our Twitter followers for suggestions on their favorite Chicago rooftops, and the feedback was brilliant. So we figured, how ’bout one more summer promotion before we bust out the parkas and ice picks!
TONIGHT Thursday, 8/30, Uber will be proving 50% off Uber rides to Chicago’s favorite rooftops! Use the code ‘ROOFTOPCHI’ in your Uber app to receive the discount on one Uber BLACK car ride (7pm -12:30a in Chicago, Max Value: $20 off), to any of the awesome spots below, reviewed by some of our best Twitter followers.
Vertigo Skylounge at The Dana Hotel
Todd Coslow (@cosmo) says: The Vertigo Sky Lounge on the 26th floor of the Dana Hotel is the perfect place to go chill regardless of the weather. Indoors or outdoors, fire pits to the ice bar — it doesn’t always get as pretentious as some of the other rooftop venues. While a velvet rope may be present, its not difficult to make it past the bouncers and up the elevator to one of the best rooftops in the city.
The Deal: Drop Uber love at the door to receive VIP entry and all ladies receive a complimentary glass of champagne!
Dean Zeman (@dena_beth) says: I really enjoy going to Citizen Bar because of their amazing rooftop atmosphere and the crowd! Every time I go there we have a great time. The food is great and the bartenders are definitely not stingy when it comes to pouring drinks! Love this friendly neighborhood bar and I encourage anyone to go if you haven’t already. Looking forward to football season and enjoying their great drink specials on Sundays!
The Deal: Flash your Uber app and receive one complimentary drink ticket. Plus take advantage of the Thursday night specials (1/2 off wings and $5 Bell’s Amber and Oberon).
Ciara Newby (@keearaah) says: “Well, I love Drumbar because quite simply they have the best cocktails in the city. And amazing cocktails taste even better when drunk outdoors in a beautiful lounge with a lovely view!”
The Deal: Show your Uber app and receive one complimentary Drumbar Original cocktail (limit 1 per group).
Patrick Baxter (@pbaxter23) says: “Market is the best rooftop in Chicago because of it’s incredible view of the Chicago skyline. Not to mention, they have Belly so I earn great rewards every time I go.”
The Deal: All Uber clients will receive 15% off their bill when they show their server the Uber app
Today, we are excited to announce that Uber will give $5.5M to support a new robotics faculty chair as well as three fellowships at CMU. This gift is part of a partnership we announced earlier this year. In addition, we’re pumped to be part of a growing innovation ecosystem in Pittsburgh that includes world leading research institutions and companies, as well as an increasing number of start-ups.
A new report conducted in partnership with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reveals that when empowered with more transportation options like Uber, people are making better choices that save lives.
