A Name Rich in Chicago History

Once a distinguished club that counted Frank Lloyd Wright, Mayor Richard J. Daley, Carl Sandburg, and William Wrigley as members, the original Tavern Club was a staple of Chicago social life.

Starting in 1928, the Tavern Club was a vital part of Chicago social life. Artists, architects, merchants and media moguls would frequent the club, enjoying fine food and drink while taking in the exceptional views of Michigan Avenue, Chicago River and Lake Michigan.

From the ice-skating rink that was once on the 26th-floor terrace to countless stories of enjoyable evenings with friends, the Tavern Club earned its reputation as one of Chicago’s favorite social clubs.

The new Tavern Club at 333 aims to once again provide a place for friends and colleagues to celebrate life and achievements. Now available for private rental, it is the perfect location for exceptional business and personal events.
