ROOF’S ACCLAIMED JETSET SERIES RETURNS THIS SUMMER
This summer, skip the crowded security lines, airport delays, and long flights to travel the world without ever leaving Chicago. Set 27 stories above the bustling city is a luxurious escape waiting to transport you to the hottest vacation destinations worldwide. ROOF on theWit will engulf your senses and whisk you away to three totally unique and exotic retreats, designed to make you forget your troubles.
ROOF’s sultry summer JetSet series is back for a third trip this year, and featuring more exciting experiences than ever before. Three exclusive weekend parties throughout the summer will immerse you in the sounds, smells, tastes, and atmosphere of Morocco, Singapore, and Tahiti. With unique entertainment from internationally known DJ’s, a signature scent designed exclusively for each destination, award-winning chefs offering their finest inspired dishes and premium beverage selections, there is absolutely no other experience like ROOF’s JetSet series.
Taking off on Memorial Day weekend, May 25 & 26, ROOF is headed to Morocco. Chef Nathan Sears will continue to celebrate the dynamic cuisine of the Western Mediterranean through imaginative menu offerings that highlight the spice-bearing regions surrounding Morocco. Standard menu items on ROOF heavily incorporate cinnamon, cardamom, sumac and black pepper, giving Chef Sears’ dishes the perfect kick to make you feel like you are dining on the shores of Casablanca. Dig into ROOF classics all weekend, like the Seared Tuna Toast with Charmoula, Tahini and Onion Puree, Tomatoes, Black Lime, and puffed quinoa on sourdough.
ROOF jets to Singapore next on June 22 & 23 – completely transforming into a distant paradise tucked away between the Pacific and Indian oceans. Singaporean cuisine is as diverse as its culture, so ROOF will be offering a melting pot of Asian inspired dishes for the second installment of the global summer series. Regional favorites feature noodles, rice and seafood, and local tropical fruit makes its way into any authentic dish. Chef Sears is taking these ideas and bringing them 27 stories above it all, with Chicken Satay featuring broccoli slaw, Peanut Dressing and Cucumber Salad, and the Singaporean classic Chili Crab with King Crab Legs, White Rice and Chili Sauce.
JetSet finishes with a bang on Labor Day weekend (August 31 & September 1) culminating in a weekend spent dreaming in Tahiti. The largest island in French Polynesia, Tahiti is full of black-sand beaches, lagoons and waterfalls, making it the ultimate summertime paradise. Inspired by the island’s abundance of fresh seafood, tropical fruits and vegetables and locally grown vanilla, Chef Sears will tackle the dramatic taste of Tahitian dining. “The flavors of Tahiti encompass the essence of the island itself,” said Sears. “Sweet, tender, refreshing and exotic.”
ROOF isn’t leaving any detail out for these weekend escapes. Inspired and unique cocktails will be handcrafted by in-house mixologists just for each weekend, and ROOF’s exceptional and always evolving bottle and specialty cocktail selection will be available. Every inch of the venue will be outfitted in stunning décor, from Moroccan architectural features to the brightly colored fabrics of Tahiti and Singapore – you will not want to miss this exclusive series.
