Brightwok Kitchen is a modern restaurant in the heart of the Loop at 21 E Adams. Our bright, open, dining area is a great option for team meetings, group dinners, and special events! The space is open with a food service/bar top area towards the back of the space. We have seating for 55 but are happy to clear the space if you have another set up in mind. For example, we have had groups bring in high-top tables for networking events where light appetizers were provided (additional fee). Since we are a restaurant, we are always happy to work with folks on putting together a food and beverage plan for your event. Please check out our catering menu at order.brightwok.com. That being said, if you have your heart set on food from an outside source, we are ok with that. If you are bringing in anything at all (outside food, beverages, decorations, etc.) we have carts that you're welcome to use! We have compostable utensils and 32 oz bowls (as well as ceramic 40oz bowls) that may be utilized, upon request. There would be no cost for these items if you elect to order food from us. If you decide to bring in outside food, we can discuss pricing to use any of our facilities/equipment, as well as utensils or bowls. We have a BYOB license so alcoholic beverages are allowed. *Please note that our rental rate does increase on Major Holidays listed below: New Years Eve/Day Easter Sunday 4th of July Thanksgiving Day Christmas Eve/Day Please share your event details and we can provide a holiday rental rate for your specific event.

Melissa M. booked a photoshoot for 15 people
Booked a half day at the restaurant for a commercial production and was extremely pleased with the rental. Jeremy and his team were awesome to work with and very accommodating. The space itself was clean, as pictured and they had already moved tables around for us so we didn't have to. Easy to find in the loop with a parking garage literally next door. We would absolutely book again! Thank you!
Clarissa B. booked a baby shower for 50 people
Great space! We hosted our baby shower here (for ~50 people) and had a great experience. Jeremy always responded quickly to our questions prior to the event and the person on site for the event was always helpful for any issues/needs that came up last minute.
BROOKE B. booked a powerpoint presentations for 50 people
AMAZING! We loved using Brightwok for our event. We rented it for a private four-hour time frame and they did such a professional job with the set up, catering, and planning, etc. The location seriously couldn't be better ... near public transport; next to a parking garage, easy access from the Loop, etc. The food was fabulous ... our guests all said they loved the evening. I will absolutely do events here again. The team is fantastic!! Thank you for everything.
Larissa R. booked a birthday party for 60 people
Nick, the restuarant's supervisor was so sweet and helpful! The restuarant was set up with our preferred floor plan by the time we got there and it had everything we needed to host a beautiful and fun 40th birthday party for my mom! I am definitely open to booking here again in the future!
Sandra H. booked a birthday party for 50 people
Okay...here's the story...planning a milestone birthday for my beautiful daughter let me to this space - we wanted something bright, beautiful, near our South Loop home and accessible for friends and family. We looked a number of spaces and landed on this one because the space is a restaurant with an awesome menu and the space itself was perfect for our event. We had about 30 folks and there was plenty of space for eating, chatting, dancing and laughing! Jeremy and this team were happy to move around tables and chairs and customize it just for us. My daughter was very happy and we had a great time. Will definitely turn to Jeremy again for our next event!
Anna T. booked a rehearsal dinner for 30 people
Jeremy helped coordinate the booking. He made it super easy. He is responsive and reliable. I contacted him via peerspace on a holiday and he responded! The space was nice and spacious. The staff are nice and accommodative.
Victoria P. booked a baby shower for 80 people
This space was amazing! Perfect for our baby shower, and we will likely be using it again in the future for other events we may have. It's naturally beautiful, plenty of standing/walking space even with all of the tables set up, and very clean bathrooms. Everything was gorgeous and our own decorations only highlighted the awesome inscription on the wall: "The Future Is Bright" which only added to our event. We were able to use the ice there, bring our own food and drinks, and choose our own music to play over the speakers -- truly customizable. We also had the opportunity to send in a floor plan which would have been set up specifically for our event upon our arrival, but we opted to have the original set up. In retrospect, I'll definitely be grouping more tables together for a better inter-mingling sort of space when we go back. Sammy was also there to help us with anything we may need for the event, and she was always ready to help us get more ice, help with trash, and she also helped with the cleanup afterwards. Such a perfect space to celebrate our new baby's arrival. Would 100% recommend and we will save this for the future. Thanks again.
