AVAILABLE FOR FULL OR PARTIAL BUYOUT (PRIVATE & SEMI-PRIVATE EVENTS)
Taking inspiration from the historic, four-story building it’s housed in, River North cocktail lounge/restaurant Celeste features some of the coolest design details in town. Whether sitting on a cushy bar stool in the first-floor Pub, which honors the great traditions of a neighborhood public house, or a table in the Deco Room, the glamorous second-floor restaurant, there is plenty of eye candy (ornate mirrors, gold-leaf ceiling, monogrammed glass walls, Louis Sullivan-inspired iron work) to go along with the perfectly crafted cocktails and inventive dishes. Inspired by a refined English garden, the enclosed Roof Garden lives up to its name with plenty of plants, along with ivy-covered brick walls, Victorian couches and a pewter-topped bar.
A variety of event menus are available, including passed appetizers, boards, hot and cold stations, and both plated and family-style dinners.
At CELESTE, your experience starts on the ground floor with the PUB, honoring the great tradition of the neighborhood public house, this space offers guests a more casual atmosphere, where delicious dishes and an elaborate beverage program can be enjoyed while watching a game on one of four televisions or listening to one of our resident DJ’s.
SEATED: 70 // RECEPTION: 125
On the second floor is the DECO ROOM, reminiscent of a glamorous, turn-of-the-century Chicago. Here the menus are dialed up a notch with a special focus on hand-selected barrels, limited allocations, rare vintages, and large format cocktails.
SEATED: 40 // RECEPTION: 75
Once merely an outdoor rooftop, the space has been transformed for year-round enjoyment and reimagined as an English Garden, appointed with floral-patterned Victorian furniture and lush tropical plants.
