SUMMER IN CHICAGO OFFICIALLY TAKES OFF WITH THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED RETURN OF THE JETSET SERIES 

Returning for a second sultry summer, ROOF presents its luxurious summer series that has redefined travel, featuring iconic, global party destinations focused on style and stimulating sophistication. Surround yourself with the ambiance of the most chic summer evenings, with music, libations, and cuisine sure to electrify all the senses.

During three marquee Friday and Saturday nights, ROOF on theWit hosts an exclusive sensual immersion, complete with Chef Nathan Sears’ new Moorish region-inspired cuisine, unique cocktails and diverse entertainment.  Guests will be transported 27 stories above it all to experience the sea breezes of Barcelona, the sunny beaches of Costa del Sol, Spain, and finally, the vibrant nightlife of Lisbon, Portugal.

The eagerly awaited excursion takes off on Memorial Day weekend, Friday, May 26 and Saturday, May 27 with an invigorating trip to Barcelona.  Savor the essence of Spain through its food, including chicken and chorizo paella and Spanish fried egg.  Specialty cocktails like the Spanish Mistress, made with Bacardi and passion fruit, will carry you away to a Mediterranean paradise.

ROOF continues its summer escape as it sails down the Mediterranean shore to Costa del Sol, Spain on Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8, and lands its final stop for the season in Lisbon, Portugal on Labor Day weekend, Friday, September 1 and Saturday, September 2.

“It doesn’t get much better than summer in Chicago, which is why our well-traveled team has redefined travel without having to leave this beautiful city,” says Ryan Kingston, General Manager of theWit Hotel. “The JetSet events are designed to arouse all the senses of these global destinations through décor, music, food, libations and overall ambiance.”

ROOF’s unique beverage program invites guests to soak up the unparalleled panoramic views of the city while sipping on an array of tantalizing cocktail creations. Those looking to cool down on a hot summer night will enjoy all new refreshingly icy beverages from our in-house mixologists.

“The beverage influence and direction is meant to be as fun as ROOF is: serious but playful, and never pretentious,” says Piers Smyth, Manager of Operations and Nightlife on ROOF. “From classic and revamped island refreshments to more contemporary house infused liquors with regional influence, some will be meant to stand on their own while others will be thoughtfully paired to complement Chef Nathan’s new menu.”

There’s no better way to escape the summer heat than by taking off with ROOF 27 floors above it all.  Join us and be swept away to pure Mediterranean bliss, one dynamic getaway weekend at a time.
