Chicago’s Magnificent Mile is the city’s equivalent of New York’s Fifth Avenue, London’s Bond Street, or the famous Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Some of Chicago’s best-known landmarks can be found along its teeming streets, including the Chicago Water Tower, the Tribune Tower, the Wrigley Building skyscraper, and the gleaming 100-story John Hancock Center.

The bustling boulevard, also known as Michigan Avenue, is also packed with high-end fashion houses, luxury hotels, and of course, excellent restaurants. The kind of places you have to fight for a table on a Friday night. 

All of these venues are available to hire for private events and special occasion private dinners. So you can stop worrying about pulling in a favor for a reservation. Instead, just follow our links to the event pages to get in touch with each venue’s event planning team. 

The Skyline Club

The Magnificent Mile is made all the more magnificent by The Skyline Club, a truly unique venue in a fantastic location, just to the South of the famous stretch of North Michigan Avenue. The entire venue was built from an antique pub shipped over piece by piece from Sussex — a county that's south of London. The interior is full of wooden beams, old paintings, and antique chandeliers from the original pub, which was reconstructed more than 100 years ago.

Where else could you experience the quaint antiquities of Old England, impeccable Illinois service, and unmatched views across Chicago, while enjoying all the fineries of a private members’ club? 

The views over The Magnificent Mile and the rest of Downtown Chicago are from the 24th-floor terrace, which is ideal for outdoor dinners or cocktail receptions.

Alternatively, you might prefer an intimate dinner in one of the private dining rooms. Expect the most attentive service, the finest champagne, and the most decadent cuisine from the team of fine-dining chefs.

Labriola Chicago

Rich Labriola grew up around the best quality ingredients and was helping out in his father’s pizzeria from a young age. He founded his first bakery in 1993 and grew the company into one of Chicago’s finest restaurant empires, with the original bakery complemented by several Italian restaurants and a chain of doughnut and coffee shops.

The finest of the bunch is Labriola Chicago on the Magnificent Mile, which consistently wows its guests with its top-notch Italian fare and Old Country atmosphere. Guests can expect breakfast and lunch buffets, deep-dish and thin-crust pizzas, as well as classic dishes using the best quality meat and fish available.

Think top-quality without any pretensions — you could come for the Mag Mile Plated Dinner, featuring pan-seared scallops, blue crab-stuffed lobster tail, and seafood risotto, or a more casual family-style pizza party.

The private dining room can accommodate up to 40 seated guests while for larger events, the semi-private back dining room can handle up to 100. So there’s plenty of scope for wedding receptions, corporate functions, or lavish birthday celebrations. And the restaurant is conveniently located right across the street from some of Chicago’s top luxury hotels if you or your guests need a place to stay.

Mariposa Chicago Michigan Ave

Mariposa is an important part of the Neiman Marcus luxury department store. And the delicate cuisine matches the exquisite items for sale. It's an ideal stop-off for a refined lunch or casual cocktail during a Magnificent Mile shopping spree.

Don’t miss the popovers with strawberry butter, which have a cult following, or the chicken broth and chicken salad, all of which are available for dine-in or to-go.
