Cerise Rooftop

Virgin Hotels Chicago extends rooftop season into the winter with the launch of Babes in Toyland, a nostalgic pop-up inspired by beloved holiday films, on Friday, December 2.

Situated on the 26th floor of the hotel, the indoor-outdoor space transports guests to a toy store-themed escape in the heart of Chicago complete with over-the-top decor, comforting dishes, festive cocktails and more.

The experience is brought to life with larger-than-life toys and colorful Christmas trees that allows guests to be transported back in time to FAO Schwarz, the classic New York City toy store.

Along with the immersive decor, Babes in Toyland will also launch a new food and drink menu inviting guests to eat, drink and be merry with a selection of comforting dishes and seasonal cocktails..

Babes in Toyland is open daily. Walk-ins are welcome for the bar and restaurant. Reservations are encouraged and can be made online at

Babes in Toyland will remain open through January 2023. Follow Cerise on Instagram at @ceriserooftop.
