It’s already that time of year to begin thinking about holiday corporate events—if you haven’t already. In Chicago, several hotspots have opened since last holiday season, making the perfect setting for a never-been-done-before party. Here are four to add to the top of your list.

  1. The Game Room: This spring, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel opened after a renovation to the historic building that was once a private member’s only club when it debuted in 1893. Groups can take their party to the next level in the hotel’s second-floor Game Room, complete with built-in bocce and billiard and shuffleboard tables as well as classic treats such as boozy floats and fried pickle pops.
  2. The Commons Club: Virgin Hotels launched its first hotel ever in Chicago earlier this year, and with it debuted The Commons Club—part lounge, study and restaurant. A menu of lobster flatbread and pork belly tacos will surely help attendees ring in the New Year.
  3. Morgan Manufacturing: The 32,000-sf Morgan Manufacturing space debuted in early 2015. Built in a completely renovated, pre-Chicago Fire building, it features an industrial feel, ideal for production shoots and creative meeting planners looking for a blank canvas this holiday season.
  4. Studio Manarchy: The studio of photographer Dennis Manarchy started hosting events earlier this year. Built in the 1890s as a maple syrup factory and later rumored to be used as a speakeasy by Al Capone in the 1920s, the building has quite the history in Chicago. A custom-made clock highlights the room as an homage to Chicago’s architecture. Three onsite kitchens, one private suite and custom-made farm tables for up to 10 guests each are only the beginning.
