Located within the historical walls of Lake Point Tower just off of Illinois Street, the name 120° Ultra Lounge is inspired by the three-wings of the tower, each 120° apart. 120° Ultra Lounge offers a nightclub atmosphere with an intimate lounge vibe designed by Chicago’s own award winning Interior Designer, Jordan Guide. The space exudes a distinct industrial-chic ambience that has become a favorite hot spot among Chicagoans. Kick back, relax and enjoy a fine bottle of champagne, wine or spirits.
