Bar Lupo is a sports bar meets Italian pub with an eclectic, industrial design. Located in River North's Gallery District, Bar Lupo provides a captivating atmosphere for memorable corporate events. The restaurant can accommodate groups from 2 – 250, but it’s slickest spot is by far The Lounge. Outfitted with mismatching, old-fashioned couches and armchairs, The Lounge is the perfect spot for an intimate cocktail hour.
Prime Bar is a modern take on a traditional ale house featuring fantastic food, a large beer selection, and great cocktails. With a more relaxed atmosphere, Prime Bar is the perfect escape for after-work cocktails and a casual dinner. For a team cocktail outing, you can rent out the East Bar for a 30-person reception or if you want a private room, the private dining room can fit up to 50 guests.
Fulton Market Kitchen could easily become your go-to spot for less conservative corporate events. Elaborate wall murals and quirky furniture create a truly unique vibe. Every week, a different artist transforms The Lounge into a studio, while guests dine, mingle and observe the artist’s creative process. Host a board dinner in the private dining room, throw a cocktail reception in the main dining room (complete with it’s own private bar), or celebrate VIP-style with a meal in the elevated dining room.
Celeste is an awesome choice for casual cocktails and rooftop dining, weather permitting of course. This multi-level venue specializes in seasonal American eats and has a well-versed beverage program. While it might be too cold now for the rooftop, this a great venue to keep in your event planning arsenal. Every one of Celeste’s three floors has a different vibe, so you’ll be sure to find a space that works for your event.
