The Library was designed by Phillip Johnson for one of Chicago's finest law firms, and carefully adapted for use as a private bar and event space. With the original law books still in place, high vaulted ceilings, rich wood, and intimate seating areas, the room still holds an old world taste and refinement. Panoramic windows, fullsize pool table, and dartboard add a modern feel. These unique qualities make the Library the perfect space for any type of event, accommodating up to 200 guests. We have created our catering menu to allow flexibility in designing your event, but we encourage you to work with our event plannerso she can help meet your particular catering needs. Owner Jimmy Kim, and Chef Trevor Hoyte, personally oversees the arrangement and construction of all event menus. We pride ourselves on detailed service as well as fair pricing, in order to make your affair as enjoyable and memorable as possible.
