Skybox on Sheffield
Skybox on Sheffield is still open, however it is now an obstructed view from the rooftop.
Skybox on Sheffield is one of our favorite rooftops in Wrigleyville, for many reasons, but especially because it's one of the original rooftops, having served Chicago Cubs fans since 1993! There are so many new Wrigleyville rooftops that have sprung up in recent years that we really love, but you just can't beat the originals for that classic feel. Skybox on Sheffield has recently converted into a luxury rooftop, and is in fact the only luxury rooftop that serves a three course menu plus an impressive selection of local beers from Chicago's award-winning microbrewery, Goose Island. When you choose Skybox on Sheffield for your Chicago Cubs seating, you know that you are being treated to something truly memorable and beyond luxurious.
If you haven't been to Skybox on Sheffield since its pre-2011 days, then you really owe it to yourself to check out their new renovations! You won't believe the four luxurious levels that they feature, which include a large roaming three-tiered roof deck, an indoor club house that's a comfortable escape from the outdoor heat or rain, and stadium seating that is better than any you'll find within the stadium itself! They've got bars on three levels, restrooms on each level, tons of plasma televisions throughout the establishment for your entertainment, and of course an elevator to travel comfortably and easy between all those extensive levels! Skybox on Sheffield is really one of the most modern and impressive rooftops in Wrigleyville, and we recommend it very highly to you.
The rooftop is located just inside the right field foul pole, so you really get a fantastic view of the game. There's nothing like watching the Chicago Cubs play from this spot in Wrigleyville, and once you visit you'll be just as hooked as we are. Their customers go on and on about the amazing view, and the fact that everything is all-inclusive certainly doesn't hurt either! A three-course meal plus drinks? And all those wonderful Goose Island beers on draft? It's a recipe for a perfect night, and you can invite up to 200 of your friends, family, and colleagues! It's a completely full service entertainment facility, to the point that even if there wasn't a game being played, you would still have an unbelievable time. Now that's what we are talking about!
Let's go ahead and talk about the food that will be available to you as a part of your admission price. The rooftop grill offers an array of delicious sandwiches, including bbq pulled pork sandwiches, chipotle chicken patties, grilled cheeseburgers, black bean veggie burgers, veal and pork bratwurst, all beef hot dogs, grilled cheese paninis, turkey reuben paninis, veggie sandwiches, Italian beef sandwiches, and beer fed pork sliders. Their sides and salads include cut fruit, pasta salad, potato salad, and Goose Island's famous pub chips. Their desserts include Goose Island root beer and orange cream mini ice cream floats, and chocolate chip cookies and brownies. The pub level appetizer buffet includes gourmet pretzel bites, pub chips, and veggie chili. And the taco bar includes seasoned shredded pork with tomatillo salsa, chopped chicken breast with peppers and onions, mixed vegetables, pico de gallo, and sour cream. So fresh!
If you're wondering about the drinks that they include here, the draft beers include Goose Island 312, Goose Island Summertime, Goose Island Green Line, Goose Island Cubby Blue, Goose Island Skybox White, Budweiser, and Bud Light. The white wines that they serve include Close La Chance Chardonnay, Santa Barbara Winery Chardonnay, Tiamo Pinot Grigio, Mohua Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and Mason Pomello Sauvignon Blanc. The red wines that they serve include Castle Rock Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Julia Organica Cabernet Sauvignon, R Collection Merlot, Castle Rock Napa Valley Merlot, Lucky Star Pinot Noir, and Castle Rock Mendocino County Pinot Noir. Your non-alcoholic choices include Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, ,Sprite, and water. So much to choose from!

If you decide to rent space at Skybox on Sheffield, you'll need to know a few things before the event. The doors will open an hour before the game begins, and the company suggests that you arrive early enough to give yourself time to find the level and choose a great spot to watch the game. Of course if you decide to take a party bus, perhaps with the company that we recommend, Party Bus Chicago, you can arrive plenty early and enjoy a leisurely pace, without having to worry about traffic, parking, or even directions! If it happens to rain during your event, you'll have access to the full service clubhouse on the third floor, which is also a nice place to escape from the heat, the cold, or even stormy weather. Their official policy on rain-outs is that you will be refunded if the game is canceled prior to the scheduled start time of your event. If your group is already on the roof and you'd like to stay and party, there will be no refund. In any case, once your party has enjoyed food and drink on the premises, no refund will be issued. Also once the game has begun, there will be no refunds regardless of rain delays, cancellations, or postponements.
Typically you will pay anywhere from $75 to $225 per person, and the variations in price will depend on the time of year, the teams that are playing, and the size of your group. With your ticket price, all food and drinks including Goose Island beer, all other beers, wine, soft drinks, and more, are included, plus you get access to all four levels of the building as well as access to the game room! You can make your payment via check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, or American Express. You pay half at the time of booking and half within thirty days of the event. If you are booking within thirty days of the event, the full amount is due immediately. There will be no additional fees, as everything is included!
