Paramount Room Farewell Dinner

Date(s) - Thursday September 21, 2017

Make plans now to attend Paramount Room’s Farewell Dinner on Thursday night September 21st, starting at 7pm.

Good friendships, decadent food, exceptional drink, and a decade of memorable evenings will be honored on Thursday September 21st, 2017

While there is no way to properly sum up what the last 10 years at Paramount Room has come to mean to so many, we invite you to be a part of one last special evening to remember.

Established in 2007, Paramount Room features a unique, dual level space loaded with urban charm and contemporary design elements. On the street level, a handsome storefront tavern space features exposed brick, lofted ceilings, distressed wood floors, an open kitchen, cozy booths and an indigo color-scheme accented by dark wood tones. One floor below, a resurrected prohibition-era basement speakeasy has been completely redesigned with chic modern lounge elements and high, dramatic ceilings.

Michelin Guide Recommended and past 5-Time Michelin Bib Gourmand recipient, Chef/Partner Stephen Dunne’s menu of elevated pub standards and internationally inspired dishes of skillfully prepared but unpretentious and acclaimed cuisine, complements a full liquor bar with craft beer, and boutique wine.

This special evening will feature a decadent 5-course meal with drink pairings and plates inspired by Chef Partner Stephen Dunne’s favorite menu items over the last decade.

The event will take place at Paramount Room (415 North Milwaukee Ave), located at the confluence of Chicago’s West Loop and River West Neighborhoods, and will commemorate a decade of acclaimed food, drink, atmosphere, everlasting friendships and enduring memories. We hope to see many faces, familiar and new, for what is sure to be an event full decadent indulgence and good cheer!
