Celeste Chicago Restaurant




Celeste is a refined, modern interpretation of the classic American dining and cocktail bar. The kitchen and bar ensembles work together to create sophisticated, thought-provoking dishes and cocktails influenced by seasonality and classic technique, which truly enhance the flavors of one another. Having spent years perfecting the space, which was built on the remains of an old Louis Sullivan glass factory, the team behind this multi-level supper club has paid the utmost attention to detail, using fixtures, designs, and patterns from early Chicago architecture and the Art Deco movement.

The multiple levels of Celeste Restaurant are reminiscent of a glamorous, turn-of-the-century Chicago — a time of the World's Fair, spirited architectural innovation, and a sense of new cultural pinnacles. Your guests will be delighted with the creative cocktails, versatile wine list and sophisticated, seasonal American cuisine.
