A sign posted on the elevator outside the Signature Room at the 95th, in the building formerly known as Hancock at 875 N. Michigan Ave., said the restaurant is closed, effective Thursday.
"It is with a heavy heart that we announce the permanent closing of our beloved Signature Room at the 95th effective Thursday, September 28, 2023," the sign said.
The panoramic view of Lake Michigan from the restaurant nestled atop one of Chicago's most storied skyscrapers is iconic and had become a staple of the Mag Mile.
The restaurant and bar cited hardships since closures during the COVID-19 pandemic as its reason for shutting down.
This makes me sad!
