Craft Cocktails Rooftop Bar / Lounge River North

Kensington, River North's intimate roof garden and lounge, has announced its seasonal debut set for this May.

Perched above renowned Chicago nightclub, Parliament, Kensington is the perfect destination for after work cocktails, an intimate evening for two or a night out on the town for larger groups. The space can accommodate up to 150 people and includes private seating areas, specially crafted libations, elegant ambiance and panoramic skyline views from its rooftop garden.


Guests can mingle, snack on bites from Mercadito Counter and sip on boutique spirits, an exclusive reserve menu, punch bowls and "adult" popsicles. Kensington will also feature a selection of seasonal mules in addition to craft kegged cocktails including house-made margaritas and mojitos that allow guests to select their flavor profile with seasonal fresh fruit offerings.

The rooftop space is accessible from both a private alley entrance and through Parliament. Upon entrance, guests' experiences elevate to new levels with a glass elevator ride to the rooftop that welcomes them with bold graphic patterns, intimate lounge seating, and ideal Chicago skyline views. Raised greenery divides seating areas offering an intimate ambiance as the sun sets behind the L train, giving guests a perfect summer evening in the city.


Enjoy the unique atmosphere, scenic views, and beautifully crafted cocktails at Kensington's weekly events with Parliament. These will include Tuesday's Industry Night, Thursday's Appy Hour and Friday's Local Motion.

Never a bad seat on the garden, Kensington's summer season hours are:

Tuesday through Friday: 5pm - 11pm

Saturday: 7pm - 12am
