For an elegant and — dare we say — fun corporate meeting, we’ve criss-crossed the Magnificent Mile to find these top Chicago restaurants with private rooms. Build employee confidence at the Pinstripes bocce courts, or indulge in the high-tech amenities at The Gage. Stay for post-meeting cocktails at Acanto, or enjoy an after-dinner aperitif on Beacon Tavern’s picturesque patio. While Chicago has limitless options when it comes to private dining, these four exclusive restaurants are destined to impress your clientele.

For classic and comforting Chicago-style ambiance…

We love Acanto’s elegant, library-esque dining room — think deep red walls and exposed wine shelves — for a refined corporate get-together. 

  • Open design easily accommodates a variety of room configurations
  • Authentic and seasonally-driven Italian cuisine and award-winning wine list
  • Located in a historically landmarked building
  • Acanto’s “family table” seats up to 24 guests for smaller meetings
