Whether it is held at a historical Chicago landmark or in your own backyard, Calihan has the experience to help create your perfect event.
Venues create the mood for any event and Calihan Catering has exclusive or select access to some of the best cultural and natural settings in the Chicago area. Matched with our fine waitstaff and cuisine, your event can become an integrated idea, eloquently executed.
Let our experienced staff recommend a place for your event, ranging from the intimate art noveau décor of Maxims to the skyline view airiness of the Sears Tower. Consider the raw urban space such as Gallery 1028 or the Chicago Illuminating Company, or dine with the tigers at Lincoln Park Zoo.
Set the stage in the Graham Room at the dramatically elegant Lyric Opera House, envelop yourself in the history of the Chicago Historical Society, the patrician atmosphere of the Chicago Academy of Sciences, or go ultra modern at the current hot city location Millennium Park, designed by architect Frank Ghery. This is just a small sampling of the venues in which we have had the opportunity to cater events.
1028 N. Hooker Street
Loft-like, with vaulted ceiling, exposed brick, skylights, as well as wood beams and floors, Gallery 1028 occupies a 4,000 sq. ft main room with a 2,000 sq. ft cocktail space and 2 foyers to make up an entree area. The clean and raw environment provides professional and private designers alike with unlimited branding opportunities and creative design concepts.
