Why should I rent a private dining room?

In case you’re wondering whether renting a private dining space for your dinner is a good idea, we’re here to resolve any of your doubts. There are many benefits to booking a secluded room in a restaurant instead of just a big table in the middle of the dining area. Privacy, seclusion and a calm and relaxed atmosphere are only a few of the benefits of a private dining room, so why not just out a few more reasons?

  • Privacy. The main reason why you should book a private dining room for any occasion is privacy. You and your guests will be seated away from the everyday hustle and bustle and with your own waitstaff, you can pretty much guarantee a rare and delightful evening.
  • Space. If your party is quite a large one, well, you may not be able to fit at a single table in the main dining room. A sufficiently sized private room can ensure that you are able to sit comfortably with your guests and engage in conversation without fighting the noise of the public room. There is no problem with walking around the room and socializing in a  private dining room.
  • Customized menu. On request, the restaurant can customize the menu according to your preferences. In most cases, you will have a chance to work with the chef or venue manager to design an a la carte menu that is perfect for your occasion. There will usually be an appetizer, an entree and then dessert to wrap everything up. When it comes to drinking options, private dining rooms normally offer beer and wine service. Sometimes there is even an option for a cash bar so your guests can relish delicious cocktails at their own expense.
  • Attentive care. Eating in a private dining room almost always comes in tandem with excellent service. Usually, the restaurant assigns a server or two who is responsible for the diners in the private room. This means you won’t have to compete for service with other guests at the restaurant. It’s always nice to have undivided attention and special service, whatever the reason for your meeting is, but it can be incredibly important if you’re having a work-related dinner. 

Take private dining to a new level! To help you out with organizing an out-of-this-world event, we’ve jotted down some important elements in the planning process. 

What to keep in mind when organizing a dinner:

  • Budget. Setting your budget should be the first step in your planning process. Once you have an established budget, you’ll be able to narrow down your search. We also suggest you sit down and calculate not only the rental costs but also any additional spending, such as food, drinks, decorations and extra facilities. For a bigger group, you may get a special offer, so don’t hesitate to talk with the venue manager!
  • Location. Remember to choose somewhere easily accessible for you and your guests. Some restaurants might provide private parking lots or valet parking but not everyone will be traveling by car, so have a look at venues located in close proximity to the “L” or other public transport.
  • Guest list. First things first, calculate how many people you would like to invite as this will help you as you search for the desired space. It’s important to find a private room able to seat everyone comfortably. To avoid any miscalculations, use our smart search filters! Once you’ve put the details, you will be presented with a curated list of spaces where all of your guests can comfortably fit.
  • Menu. Having an event in a private dining room gives you more freedom to choose the menu according to your taste and preferences. But before you decide on anything specific, ask your guests about any food allergies or special dietary restrictions.
  • Setting. Make sure the space you’re hosting your dinner suits the occasion, as well as adds a much-needed personal touch. From elegant and classy spaces to quirky spots, Chicago offers plenty of fantastic restaurants with private dining rooms of all shapes and sizes. If you’re considering arranging some decorations on your own, think of renting out a blank canvas space where you’ll be able to bring your vision to life.
