It’s t-minus “sooner than you think” until the holidays, which means it’s time to start considering your end-of-year entertaining plans.
Because let’s be honest: booking a table for anything bigger than a party of 10 is a pain in the haunches.
Which is why a wise man books private, and books early.
So we went ahead and rounded up the nine best new private dining spaces in Chicago. From hidden doors to tasting menus to an open-plan mezzanine that overlooks the cheap seats, snag ‘em before anyone else does.
Not everyone can live globe-trekking bohemian lifestyle, but at Beatnik, you can at least pretend. Chandeliers, Persian rugs and a sea of pillows invite guests to dine on pan-global dishes. The space is a total eyegasm, and the semi-private table tucked away behind a row of potted palms makes for the perfect spot to share stories of the year’s travels.
