The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.
When it comes to a good time, the Hotel Lincoln has a track record. During prohibition, booze was served in our speakeasy. Later, we housed the North Side literary and stage crowd, who as a group weren't exactly teetotalers. Craps games in the halls were said to be commonplace. But we've mellowed since. If you'd like to throw a party or special event, we'll make sure laws aren't broken.
The hotel's largest event space is just above the lobby, reachable by art-filled stairway or elevator, and includes pre-function and main areas. Abundant natural light fills the room from windows overlooking Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan, making it great for events calling for Chicago charm.
A more intimate suite. A private sleeping area adjoins a fully-furnished space, including kitchenette, sofa, dinner table, full bath and 55” HDTV. This suite overlooks the corner of Lincoln and North Clark, with sweeping east views of the park and the Ulysses S. Grant monument.
The acclaimed farm-to-table restaurant, overseen by award-winning chef Paul Virant and BOKA Restaurant Group, is available for private cocktail events of up to 45 guests and dinner buyouts, as well as custom menus upon request.
The Hotel Lincoln's dramatic rooftop bar/lounge, also by Virant and BOKA, is perched 12 stories high with 360 degree views. It's available for private events of up to 75 in its enclosed space and 175 on its open terrace, as well as full buyouts.
