The Fellini, Factory, and Chelsea rooms are independent spaces that can be combined for larger events. The Reserve Bar is a perfect cocktail reception setting, overlooking the Nico Salone and its botanical living wall. The lush, mid-century aesthetic provides a unique canvas for parties of up to 80 guests for a seated dinner.

Third Floor


Named for the outspoken leaders of the historical Chicago Seven, Thompson Chicago’s third floor event space consists of the Davis, Dellinger and Hayden rooms. A spacious pre-function event space awaits outside the Chicago Seven rooms, and can be used for receptions and corporate gatherings alike.

Our Chicago Seven rooms offer a modern, yet luxurious feel in an intimate combination of spaces. Meanwhile, floor-to-ceiling windows feature unparalleled views of the city below. Elegant décor accents highlight the space, enriching any event experience. The Chicago Seven collection of rooms can accommodate up to 200 guests, seated at round tables.
