1721 W. Division St
Situated on the top floor above sister restaurant Black Bull and cocktail bar Bordel, Wicker Park’s Botánico is a stunning 2,500-square-foot dedicated private event space with two distinct rooms. Designed by Maison Bonhomme, Bonhomme Hospitality’s design division, Botánico features Murano crystal wall lamps, gently worn Persian rugs, farmhouse dining tables, and colorful large-scale paintings from local artists set against lush tropical greenery. High ceilings coupled with a wall-to-wall skylight, rustic wood-paneled walls and a dramatic half-moon window overlooking Division Street add to Botánico’s exceptional interior design. Unique to Botánico is its beautiful open chef demo kitchen and bar, ideal for cooking classes, product launches, wine tastings, chef dinners and cocktail classes as well as more informal culinary-focused parties. Botánico can hold up to 100 guests for reception-style parties and 60 guests for formal sit-down dinners. A number of cozy seating areas, some decorated with velvet sofas, others with comfortable leather chairs, provide additional spaces for guests to gather and mingle.
