In Chicago next month, deca RESTAURANT + BAR and The Ritz-Carlton Chicago (A Four Seasons Hotel) are set to unveil a new rooftop destination: The dec Rooftop Lounge + Bar. Situated 12 stories above Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, The dec will offer some prime views over the city.

Located just off the Hotel’s lobby and deca BAR, the 57-seat rooftop accommodates up to 100 guests and was designed by San Francisco-based BraytonHughes Design Studios. The dec has an opaque, color-changing LED waved wall and a polished stainless steel circular sculpture, The Lenz by artist David Sorenson. This focal point of The dec was designed to draw attention to the sky and surrounding buildings all while reflecting the Hotel.

For lunch, The dec will offer an al fresco light menu, perfect for afternoon lounging or a quick business lunch. As the sun sets, bites and snacks will be available, designed to be paired with The dec’s "classic cocktails with a twist"; draft beers from craft breweries; as well as wines and Champagnes.

Coolest touch: The dec will also have a specially designed, old-fashioned ice cream cart with a sundae selection from deca RESTAURANT + BAR Pastry Chef Eric Estrella

Weather permitting, The dec is scheduled to open in May 2013. For updates, follow The Ritz-Carlton Chicago on Twitter at @RCChicago.
