Are you a professional who loves dining out at Chicago's best restaurants and meeting other like-minded individuals in an intimate setting of 4-6 diners? If so, then this is the group for you. Restaurant selection will feature some of Chicago's best- both classic favorites and new hot spots as well as the occasional BYOB and hidden gem. If the meet-up falls on a weekend, let's hit the town for some after dinner cocktails.
Reminiscent of 1950’s American and European coffee houses, French patisseries and Italian cafes, The Library houses a Coffee Bar by day offering La Colombe Coffee’s wide variety of exotic coffees, including a special blend just for PUBLIC, coffee drinks from around the world, as well as morning and afternoon homemade baked goods, pastries, Italian dolci, fresh fruit smoothies, incredibly thick “Quicksand” shakes, sandwiches, salads, freshly baked desserts, and other specialties by Jean-Georges Vongerichten. You can work and eat at the large communal table with integrated convenience outlets, unwind in front of the enormous, custom limestone fireplace with a roaring fire, or relax and browse a selection of specially curated coffee-table books, newspapers and magazines. By night, the room transforms into a sexy lounge and wine bar offering a full bar, domestic and international bottled beer, a great international selection of wines, specialty cocktails, small-plated exotic food, after dinner dessert, and other gourmet global specialties by Jean-Georges.
