Shanghai Terrace, Peninsula Hotel, Chicago

Getting high in Chicago becomes an Asian affair at the elegant new Shanghai Terrace, which opened in the Peninsula Hotel in 2011 and remains a chic roost lined with cabanas whose red curtains catch the Windy City’s nightly breezes. The bar fills each evening with Gold Coast residents and their visitors who nibble kung pao chicken buns, sip ginger juleps and lychee sake martinis and gawk at the city’s Magnificent Mile landmarks, including the Water Tower and John Hancock Building. Cocktails from $12; peninsula.com.
