The Violet Hour
  • The Violet Hour serves artisanal cocktails in the heart of Wicker Park. Rooted in pre-prohibition style libations, the James Beard Award-winning bar program features a seasonally rotating cocktail list, as well as an extensive selection of approachable and sought-after spirits. Events are organized in "cocktail party" fashion with passed drinks and appetizers available from our seasonal menu. The Violet Hour’s curtain-draped, candlelit salons can accommodate semi-private and private group events from 5 to 150. Our award-winning cocktails, outstanding service, and delicious food create an exquisite, delectable setting for any occasion. The back salon is a beautiful party space that holds up to 40 guests. We can also divide the back salon in half for semi-private events for groups up to 20 guests. Reserving both the back and middle salons can accommodate a maximum of 70 guests, and the entire space is available for up to 150 guests. We can also make special arrangements for groups of 8-15 guests.
