Beatnik On The River aims to take guests on a journey — from its Riverfront Terrace laden with Indonesian daybeds, Moroccan lanterns and lush tropical greenery overlooking the South Branch of the Chicago River to its front bar decorated with hand painted Andalusian glazed tiles, futuristic midcentury brass chandeliers and a back bar accented with a vintage Parisian patisserie bakery rack. The story continues inside with The Jewelry Store, an entire 1913 Nashville jewelry shop reassembled piece by piece in the middle of the restaurant. Essentially a breathtaking hall of mirrors with recessed mirrored niches, original crystal chandeliers and sliding-door cabinets once used for display and storage. Mirroring our interior’s design-through-storytelling aesthetic, Beatnik takes guests on a journey without borders, playing with flavors and ingredients from Israel, Lebanon and Morocco on the Mediterranean then across the Atlantic to Mexico and Peru in the Americas. The gorgeous 4,500-square-foot space offers a variety of options for events.
