Private Parties & Catering
Host your next event in our all-seasons courtyard, seating up to 65 guests maximum (55 with a private bar) or 55 guests standing/reception-style. Located in the back of Stella Barra next door, this hidden gem has a retractable roof that can open during the warmer months and a cozy fireplace that can be used during the colder months. Brick-lined walls, hanging Edison bulbs and a tree adorned with string lights make for a unique space for any occasion. Select your menu from either Summer House or Stella Barra, and arrange the room to your specifications with a private bar, gift table, buffet, sushi bar and more.
The full restaurant can be booked for larger groups; a banquette table in the main dining room is available for smaller parties. Summer House also offers full-service catering for off-site events of all sizes, including aboard Chicago’s First Lady Cruises.
