Cocktail Party Venues Chicago

Conveniently located right off the Red Line in River North, Howl is the perfect cocktail party venue for celebrating a huge event or toasting to some great friends. With picture-perfect drinks, plenty of customizable room, delicious hors d’oeuvres and the city’s most electrifying live show, this is the cocktail party that your guests will never forget.

Our live music show can also be made optional for private events. The show can be tailored to meet your company’s needs.

It’s time to set the stage. Howl’s spacious venue is open 7 days a week and has enough room to fit plenty of guests, plus our semi-private space is perfect for smaller groups who want to feel like a part of the show. You can even customize our space with cocktail stations, catering, specialized piano banners and wall signage, ice luges, photo booths and a ton more. Mingling about your party will be easy for your guests and everyone will be able to see the show.

Chicago’s music scene is pretty incredible, but a live music show met by a full band playing hits from nearly every genre and decade? Howl at the Moon is the only place where you can find that! Our players even take requests and Howl’s stage is completely sound-controlled for private events, so finding that perfect level for your cocktail party is never an issue.

Of course, the main event at any cocktail party has to be the drinks! We love rolling out custom cocktail stations for your guests, and our beer list has all of Chicago’s favorite brews ready on tap or bottled. Our 86 oz. buckets always aim to please as well, and come in 10 unbeatable flavors!

The last step in a perfect cocktail party has to fill your guests up, and Howl Chicago’s mouthwatering appetizers come in party packs or by the tray with plenty of delicious options. Howl at the Moon is the only cocktail party venue in Chicago that will make your night howl.
