These semi-private rooms are adjacent to the Main Dining Room, and can accommodate a maximum of 40 seated patrons or 40 cocktail-style.

Lambada Lounge

The Lambada Lounge can seat 40 patrons, and host 50 guests cocktail-style.

A private bar and a fireplace highlight this unique dual-level room. It accommodates 75 seated guests, and 100 cocktail-style.

Tango Room

The Tango Room features a 70-inch plasma screen and can accommodate 100 seated guests or 125 cocktail-style — when used in conjunction with the Catwalk, the number of cocktail-style guests increases the capacity to 150 cocktail-style.


Our balcony overlooking Carnivale’s Main Dining Room is located outside of the Tango Room, and it’s an ideal space to take in the view.

Samba Room

Our largest private room can host 200 seated guests and 300 cocktail-style. The Samba Room boasts wireless internet access, private restrooms, a private bar, and a private kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer genuine urban views of Chicago — and since it’s soundproof, you and your guests can enjoy your event in high fidelity.
