Our Event Space

Salons I, II, III

A vibrant and vesatile space, our Salons are semi-private dining spaces adjacent to the main dining floor (separated by heavy curtain), so your attendees will get the full atmosphere and excitement of Carnivale.  Seating for up to 40 guests!

Lambada Lounge

This is a unique space on the first floor of our venue, just behind the glass of the Main Bar.  The room is strategically located in front of the venue before entering the Main Dining Room, and maintains the Lounge atmosphere of the bar area, ideal for after-work functions.  Please note that there is no set bar within the room, so all drinks will be butler-passed.


Flamenco Room

For an intimate feel and fun atmosphere, Flamenco is ideal!  Located off the 1st floor, Flamenco features truly dynamic artwork and a private bar within the space.  Located to the back of the restaurant, you will have privacy from our bustling Main Dining floor to really engage your guests.  We can accommodate a maximum of 90 seated in this space, or 100 in a flowing reception.

Tango Room

For an incredibly distinctive space, the Tango Room is the perfect fit!  Located on the 2nd floor off the Catwalk Balcony, the room definitely gets the exposure of our famous atmosphere!  With high ceilings, exposed beams,  a private bar, 70” flat screen TV, and two distinct areas within the room, Tango is sure to impress your guests!



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

A fantastic and inspiring space that will really energize and wow your guests!  This is our largest event space, located on the 2nd floor of our venue featuring a private bar, 70” flat screen TV, two private restrooms, and floor-to-ceiling windows – giving a great urban view of Chicago.  Completely private, Samba is the perfect space for your event!  We can accommodate a maximum of 200 guests for a plated dinner, or 300 for a flowing reception in this unique space.  Our spirit lives on with the décor offering the colors and design elements seen throughout the restaurant, so your guests will get the true Carnivale experience!
