Beatnik on the River

180 North Upper Wacker Drive
Chicago, IL 60606

Beatnik On The River takes guests on a journey with its boho-chic design and globetrotting dishes and cocktails. Stunning views of the Chicago River—from an expansive riverfront patio to the interior mezzanine—enhance the distinct experience, as does an entire vintage jewelry shop installed inside.

“Boho hipster vibes on overload and you’re surrounded by candlelight and chandeliers. It’s amazing. The food is off the charts and super-flavorful.” – Condé Nast Traveler  

“Our guests were gobsmacked by the lovely space, incredible service, and bounty of beautifully presented, super-delicious food. The bar was staffed with friendly, knowledgeable mixologists. Rave reviews for the entire staff and wonderful event planner. Beatnik On The River way exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend it for anyone looking for a private party venue.” Sandy & Jane, social clients
