    Chicago’s Public House lets guests have their cake and eat it, too … in shake form.

Just north of the Chicago River, a 10,000-square-foot gastropub is serving up a food lover’s dream.

Public House offers beloved American fare with an upscale twist, and with more than 100 types of beer at the ready, you could call it a hop lover’s paradise. But the destination eatery may be most well-known for its Instafamous boozy Cake Shakes.

Comprised of a craft beer base mixed with ice cream, these colossal shakes are served in a buttercream frosted glass topped with sprinkles and a full slice of cake. Guests can choose from the Chocolate Porter (a mixture of Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter and chocolate ice cream, topped with a slice of chocolate cake) or the Vanilla Stout (made of JP’s Casper White Stout and vanilla ice cream, topped with a slice of confetti buttercream cake). Public House also crafts a new flavor each month to satiate any sweet tooth.

With a variety of spaces available for private events, guests can indulge in this ultimate sweet treat or enjoy Public House specialties at small seated functions or large receptions. The West Bar seats up to 105 guests or 275 for a standing reception with access to The Deck, which houses five table tap booths each offering self-serve beer and liquor on tap. The Deck can accommodate up to 42 for a seated event and 55 for a reception.

The slightly smaller East Bar, featuring an island bar and floor-to-ceiling windows, can accommodate up to 150 for a reception and 50 seated. The Library, which accommodates up to 20 guests, contains shelves lined with leather-bound books and a candlelit ambience.

Sometimess a boardroom just won't cut it for a meeting. When you want to lighten the mood, create a fun atmosphere or invite your team to an elevated happy hour, consider booking space in one of Colorado’s many distilleries. 

From breathtaking mountain views and intimate event spaces to cock- tail-making classes and sampling sessions, distilleries offer a comfortable setting for meetings, events, team-building and everything in between.
