Caring Hospitality is our Cornerstone to Create a Memorable Chicago Dinner or for 5 to 300 Guests

  • Located in the heart of River North: Celebrate your organization in the heart of the city! Your guests will get that Chicago experience being on State Street, a few strides north of the Chicago River and just steps from some of Chicago’s best hotels, including the Langham, Renaissance, London House, Trump, Gwen, Hyatt and several others.
  • Food to Make “Foodies” happy: Count on a fully from scratch menu of locally sourced ingredients of American classics like prime rib, steaks, and the freshest seafood with a twist.
  • Swanky, Old Hollywood Room Design: Chicago proprietors, Keene and Megan Addington, have created a swanky, jazz era atmosphere that enables guests to stylishly relax. Urban dining that is sophisticated, but warm and welcoming. Each private event space channels that golden age of the Roaring 20s and Old Hollywood. You’ll discover art and artifacts that share secret stories of Chicago. All serving as the perfect backdrop for your rehearsal dinner or wedding.
