About The Crown

Our location is pure Chicago. Adjacent to where the Chicago River and Michigan Avenue meet, The Crown isn’t just an ideal post card spot in the heart of our great city, but stands as the unofficial gateway to the Magnificent Mile.

The view from the outdoor veranda offers a panorama of the most impressive architecture in the Chicago skyline. Your guests will revel in our setting for its beauty, historical significance and its authentic Chicago essence.

Chicago private party rooms don’t get any better than this. Offering 360-degree views of the city, an indoor lounge and private outdoor veranda nestled within the flying buttresses of the Tribune Tower’s 25th floor, The Crown can accommodate up to 150 people for cocktail receptions. The Crown features a private copper-topped bar, decorated with vintage printing plates from the Chicago Tribune, one 60” television with a/v capability and catering options from Howells & Hood (rental fees do apply).

When you consider our location, unmatched service, fantastic food and array of marvelous drink options, you will find that our venue is unmatched for a Chicago-style private party in the Windy City. Make history today by planning your event with us at The Crown.

Due to Tribune Tower construction, we closed our doors in June 2018.
