We have been hosting several professional (all office events, partner and practice celebrations, client dinners, recruitment events, and holiday parties) and personal events at Vermilion -

Uniqueness - Our events cater to a sophisticated and discerning clientele who are looking for more than the standard Italian/French/Japanese fare. We do, nonetheless, offer enough choices (such as steak, ribs, veal, lobster) for the mainstream palate
Tailored prix-fixe options - We offer several dining prix-fixe options (in the $50-200 range), which we’re happy to tailor to your needs
Capacity - We can accommodate exclusive groups of 8-120 in semiprivate areas and offer a restaurant buyout for larger events (we seat upto 250 guests and have hosted cocktails receptions for upto 350 guests)
Occasions - Vermilion is an ideal destination for lunch (Mon-Fri), dinner (all week), after-work cocktails, or after-dinner desserts and drinks in the lounge
Sophistication and location – Our ambiance is contemporary and sophisticated, the feel is stylish and urbane, but not stiff upper lip. We are conveniently located in the heart of the River North district (State and Hubbard) walking distance from the loop and most hotels.
Flair and entertainment - We add several special touches (global wine tasting sessions/pairings, spice 101 or interactive cooking demos, flamenco dancers, belle dancing on request!, bossa nova jazz band, Latin American or Indian fusion DJ with dancing, extra flowers, rose petals on tables, silver napkins, orchids on desserts, a complementary amuse or intermezzo, personalized menus, plethora of candles and staff) to make each occasion spectacular

We have included some information here to give you a feel for Vermilion, but in the end only experiencing it first hand can do it justice. Please do not hesitate to call us for inquiries at 312.527.4060.
