Tonight, the Vertigo Sky Lounge at the Dana Hotel & Spa launches its seasonal bar, Vertigo Sky Lodge. Perched on the hotel's rooftop, the patio space will be open all winter, and it has a ski-lodge theme. There will be a s'mores-making station, ice taxidermy statues, and all the hot toddies you could ask for—but, yes—this open-air space is exposed to the Chicago elements. And tonight's forecast is cold. Here's what to wear.
