Tucked into an urban oasis of native bushes and botanicals, Café Brauer is like no other venue in the city. Its Prairie-School-architecture-style structure has been standing for over a century, and it’s an official Chicago landmark according to the National Register of Historic Places. The tall, stained glass windows offer romantic views of the neighboring lily pond and surrounding plant menagerie against the backdrop of the city skyline. Just south of the famed Lincoln Park Zoo, the restored prairie boasts its own ecosystem—walking through the paths is like entering a secret world all your own. In the spring and summer, the hall is surrounded by flowers in bloom, making indoor floral arrangements look even more lush and lively. The warm wood interior is upscale-rustic, adding an intimate feel to events of any size. Café Brauer’s tile mosaics, glass chandeliers and classic loggias are the picture-perfect backdrop for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, company celebration or cocktail hour.
