The Sun Deck


Nowhere else in Chicago can you find 60,000 square feet of inviting, landscaped outdoor space—four stories high. The Club’s urban oasis boasts an adult pool for lap swimming, a smaller multi-use pool, and ample space and physically distanced chaise lounges for relaxing on a beautiful day. Views from the Sun Deck are breathtaking; there simply is no better place to be in Chicago during the summer.

But the Sun Deck is more than just an inviting space to relax or workout - the Sun Deck Cafe features a menu of salads, sandwiches, frozen treats, and more. The Sun Deck Grill serves freshly grilled hamburgers, tacos, hot dogs, and much more. And the Pool Bar offers specialty summer cocktails.


Lap lanes must be reserved in advance on the Adult Swimming page of the website.


There are no reservations for Family Swim in the South Outdoor Pool. Visit the
Children's Swimming page of the website for the Family Swim schedule.


The Pool Bar area and the entire raised deck area leading to and around the North Outdoor Pool are reserved for adults 18 and older only. The area next to the Sun Deck Cafe and the South Outdoor Pool area are all-ages.


Out of consideration for all members, it is not permitted to reserve lounge chairs on the Sun Deck. Unattended towels on lounge chairs will be removed, and personal items will be brought to lost and found in the Member Services office. 

In addition, smoking and vaping is not allowed, and it is not permitted to bring outside alcohol to the Sun Deck.


Our summer guest pass policy ensures that members have priority on the Sun Deck.
