The Publican Restaurant
The restaurant’s expansive layout, designed by Thomas Schlesser, incorporates strong architectural lines and rustic décor, reflective of The Publican’s farmhouse cuisine. Its spacious interior is dominated by large walnut communal tables designed to recall 16th Century European banquets. Set up in racetrack fashion, the banquet tables seat upwards of 130 people with views of the partially open kitchen.
This design lends itself as the perfect location for any Chicago wedding. The minimal use of walnut and brass provides the perfect accent to whatever colors, theme and floral you have imagined. The expansive room is built for joyous celebrations and unions of all races, religions, countries of origin, sexual orientations and genders.
The Publican hosts semi-private and private events for social and corporate groups as small as 10 and as large as 175. The space is available for private lunches Monday through Friday. It is also available for full evening buyouts 7 nights a week and brunch buyouts on Saturday and Sunday.
Whether you are celebrating a wedding, birthday dinner, hosting a happy hour or a board meeting, the Publican can meet your needs. We offer full A/V equipment, WiFi and handicap accessibility. In the summer months we also have our expansive patio, which is the perfect spot for a happy hour with colleagues!
Whatever type of event you choose to host at the Publican in Chicago's West Loop, you won't be disappointed by the quality of service, food, drink and setting. Cheers.
