Anywhere you can snag a seat in this low-lit lounge on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Center, you'll have a colossal view of the city. While the view is a natural draw for tourists (especially during the summer), locals love this place, too.
The drinks are pricey but good. Try the Skyscraper -- Bacardi Limon, and pineapple and cranberry juices served on the rocks -- or a Raspbery Royale -Corbel champagne and Chambord. Appetizers include shrimp cocktail, and Southwestern chips and dip.
