Banquet Tables and Set Up

Private Events

The space can accommodate intimate seated dinners, family style service,  and large standing cocktail receptions. Featuring inspiring biophilic views of the Bosque Garden and surrounding University of Chicago campus, it’s a unique space dedicated to hosting private events. 

The Dining Room

The flexible Dining area, which has expansive views of the Bosque garden, is available for meals and events of up to 88 conference attendees and university patrons.

Rather than the uninspired banquet buffets served at traditional conference centers, this stunning space offers culinary-focused, family-style service with a variety of gourmet tableside tasting platters.
