Urban Dispatch: The Signature Room Atop The Hancock Tower In Chicago

The above photo is visual evidence of why it sucks that the Comcast Center doesn't have a observation deck and/or a public restaurant on its top floors.

Brad Maule of Philly Skyline (and, most recently, Maule of America) took this shot as he traveled through Chicago earlier this month.

It was taken from The Signature Room, which is a restaurant and bar at the top of the Hancock Tower where you can go and pay $12 for a martini (which is still cheaper than the $15 general admission to the Hancock Observatory) and look out on one of the best views of any bar in the United States.

As for R2L, we hope the views are half as impressive.

Although to be fair, you're almost better off paying the $15 for the observation deck because the drinks at the Hancock are just godawful.
