Just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't drink on a rooftop.

The season of outdoor beer gardens and rooftop drinking is over. Or is it?

Assembly Rooftop Lounge, which offers views of Logan Square, the Free Library, Franklin Institute and Museum of Art, stays open through the colder months.

Guests are invited to gather around the lounge's cozy fire pits, while sipping hot drinks from the new winter cocktail menu.
