Entertaining Company floats! We partner with Chicago’s First Lady Cruises, an award-winning boat, to bring our first-class flavors, food and service to the water. CFL sails along the historic Chicago River, offering unparalleled perspectives on Downtown’s legendary architecture. Trust us—there’s no better way to see the city’s skyline.

Chicago Boat Weddings with CFL

Cruise right into your happily ever amidst downtown Chicago’s celebrated skyscrapers and legendary architecture aboard Chicago’s First Lady. Nearly anything you could want from a traditional wedding venue, you can have aboard the boat—with the addition of fresh air and a romantic breeze off the water. We’ll staff your event with our top-notch servers and bartenders, who can pass drinks and hors d’oeuvres to guests between ceremony and reception; couples can book live bands and entertainers to perform aboard the boat; the two spaces can be arranged for seated dinner and/or standing cocktail hours. Plus, the Lady herself is a bonafide work of art—marble and granite accents, a carpeted main salon and luxuriously-cushioned chairs. The open-air upper deck has intimate seating for 60, and couples can invite up to 125 guests for a standing reception.

Corporate Event Catering

Show your employees why working in the Second City is first-rate, with a company outing on CFL Cruises. Raise a glass of local beer to office happy hour on the water. Have guests visiting the company? Take them on a totally unique tour of the city. Networking is more fun against a skyline backdrop. Plus, our custom boat menus feature themes across the board—Mexican, Indian, Chicagoan, nautical barbeque and more.
