There aren’t a lot of upscale spots near McCormick Place worth spending time at. Vu is a rooftop bar on the 22nd floor of a nearby building, and since it has both firepits and retractable windows it’s good for the occasional April snowstorm and/or autumn. There’s a long menu of small plates, with dishes like mushroom tostadas, chorizo and shrimp toast, and steak tartare. It’s all fine, but our favorite activity here is to drink and wonder how the Morningstar Investment Conference is going.
