Cerise Happy Hour @ Virgin Hotels Chicago


Since spring isn't arriving as quickly as we'd like, Cerise, the rooftop bar at the Chicago Virgin Hotel, hosted a "Backyard" happy hour to create some summer ambiance. Mike's Hard Lemonade let us escape the brutally cold weather in Chicago. The "Backyard" Happy Hour featured specialty drinks, games, and tunes. 

Mike's set up bean bags/corn hole and giant jenga to kick everything off., then the dj and specialty drinks became the focus of the evening. It's always nice to pretend you live somewhere warm, and this event brought summertime vibes to the contemporary rooftop bar & lounge.
