CHICAGO — Here's where you can get a drink with a view — while enjoying the great outdoors. 

Rooftop bars have surged into Chicago's Downtown and neighborhoods in recent years, with new additions in 2017 including Noyane in River North and the Cabana Club atop Wicker Park's new Hollander hotel. 

While new hotels have led the recent rooftop charge, other high-level haunts have appeared atop places ranging from an upscale furniture store to a meat market. 

From Reggie's in the South Loop to Jefferson Park's Garage Bar, here's an extensive list of the city's rooftop bars (Did we miss one? Post in the comment section below or email dmatthews@dnainfo.com).
