Three Stunning New Event Spaces Open at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago

CHICAGO – May 19, 2015 – Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago is pleased to debut three new, luxurious event spaces with a soft opening this month, followed by a grand opening reveal in June 2015. These elegant new areas, totaling nearly 6,600 square feet, afford even more opportunity to host a range of social and corporate functions in the Five Diamond, Five Star property, renowned worldwide for its splendor, breathtaking vistas and unparalleled hospitality.  The spaces are available for booking now and the hotel will host a special reveal party on June 10, showcasing how the event spaces can be utilized for a variety of different occasions. 

Designed by the award-winning team at Valerio Dewalt Train Associates (who also designed the property’s two-Michelin starred restaurant, Sixteen), the unique event spaces are housed in areas of available retail space at the 92-story tower, some of which open directly onto the picturesque riverwalk. Showcasing stunning views of the Chicago River, Lake Michigan and the city’s famed bridges and architectural gems, the expert design team drew inspiration from the expansive glass and dramatic curvature of the building to mount each space while championing the unique vantage points found only at Trump Chicago.

The three new event spaces include:


Riverside Gallery

Square Footage: 2,000


– Plated Dinner: 144

– Buffet: 96

– Reception: 240

– Reception & Dinner: 96

– Conference: 40

Accessible via Trump Chicago’s main entrance, or a second entry located on the building’s west side often utilized for private functions, the Riverside Gallery has the versatility to transform into private function space for receptions, seated dinners, meetings and more. Accentuating the building’s natural light and curves, its elongated space includes beautifully framed, 4’x9’ mirrors that line the gallery walls, bounding the sunshine and water views during daytime and reflecting the shimmering city lights as the sun sets. A spectacular, 20’ coffer – rectangular with rounded edges – draws the eyes upward and adds a stunning visual effect to the ceiling.

When not in use for a private event, the Riverside Gallery will serve as an elegant extension of the hotel lobby, providing a comfortable, serene space for guests.

– Hollow Square: 42

Evoking the art deco glamour of the 1930’s, the Riverside Room is situated directly on Trump Chicago’s famed River Walk, with available outdoor access. While natural light fills the space by day, powerful city reflections transcend during the evening hours. Delicately rounded walls – in pristine white – and towering 12’ ceilings frame this majestic room. Three circular coffers as tall as 13.5’ give the space a monumental presence, each filled with cylindrical Swarovski crystal fixtures ensconced in sensuous, dimmable lights.

The Riverside Room also includes electronic sunshades for privacy or light shielding, while a state of the art projection system is ideal for impressive meeting and event presentations.

For larger functions, guests may utilize the adjacent Riverside Gallery as a stylish pre-function area.

Bridgeview Room

Square Footage: 2,800

– Classroom (2 per 6): 92

– Classroom (3 per 6): 138

Located one floor above Trump Chicago’s West Entrance, the Bridgeview Room is aptly named for its unsurpassable views of Chicago’s famed bridges and its alluring effect of “floating” atop the Chicago River. Upon exiting the elevator, guests will be greeted by three, elaborate crystal chandeliers. The entry also includes a private coat check, which can also serve as an additional bar. In the main event space, guests will appreciate a bold design element – a modern, 11’ tall, 50’ wrap-around panel in a multi-dimensional, geometric pattern. This striking component is glass-backed, with reflective lighting that results in a glow suited to the occasion. Above, two oval ceiling coffers reaching 12.5’ amplify the space.

In all three areas, state of the art technology allows Trump Chicago’s skilled event team to control lighting, climate control, audio/visual and more through a mobile device application.

“We are thrilled to present these stunning new spaces,” said T. Colm O’Callaghan, Vice President and Managing Director at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago. “Our private function areas are always in extremely high demand, and these additions will only augment our ability to celebrate more memorable gatherings with our guests. Our team has collaborated closely with Valerio Dewalt Train Associates and the Trump family to deliver the very best in design, style and versatility, and we agree that these new areas will both enhance the building’s grandeur while providing our clients with an incomparable Chicago experience.”
