It's not often that "vintage opulence" and "new" are used to accurately describe anything, but those two terms perfectly describe the world-class event spaces offered by one of the North Loop's newest residents, Prime & Provisions, already a favorite spot for events of all kinds.
Housed in the Builders Building at 222 N. LaSalle St., Prime & Provisions’ event spaces benefit from the location's history. Prime & Provisions co-owner David Rekhson of DineAmic Group says that the building's background is part of what made it appealing to himself and fellow owner Lucas Stoioff.
"The building used to be a mini Merchandise Mart of builders, developers and tradesmen, which is where it got its name," says Rekhson. "It's almost 100 years old, and has grandiose and opulent architecture you just don't see anymore."
Hidden away on the second floor of the steakhouse is a private dining room with some of the best views in the city. It's a view that Rekhson describes as "majestic" with a dazzling outlook over the Chicago River, bridges and cityscape.
The room is perfect for everything from business lunches to bridal or baby showers, and Catering & Events Manager Chelsey Brunner says they've already seen a wide variety of events. "We've hosted everything from birthdays, wedding showers and rehearsal dinners to more formal events such as corporate meetings, awards dinners and receptions."
Grace Clayton, an event planner for Bliss Weddings and Events, has planned multiple rehearsal dinners in the private dining space — and she raves about the experiences.
"Working with a team such as Prime & Provisions is a guaranteed success," Clayton says.
The intimate space can seat up to 75 for dining or hosts 125 for cocktails. The dining room is equipped with advanced A/V capabilities in case you need to show a reminiscent photomontage of the bride and groom or guest of honor, or make a toast with a wireless microphone.
For smaller parties, inquire about their outdoor terrace overlooking the river for 50-75 guests or the semi-private Prime Nook for 20-30.
The full venue can hold up to 500 guests while the main dining room can be rented out for dinner parties of 200 guests. Additionally, a new event space managed by the Prime & Provisions event team is now available to host larger events and promises "vintage opulence" at it’s best. Coined as The Builders BLDG, this awe-inspiring four-story atrium just behind the restaurant boasts a barrel-vaulted glass ceiling, inlaid marble floors and a grand staircase that leads to a mezzanine level that overlooks the main floor.
For weddings in particular, this versatile space provides what Rekhson describes as a "behind-the-scenes experience." After using the main floor for the ceremony, guests and the wedding party can enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the second-level mezzanine, all while watching the main floor transform for the reception, if they so desire.
One of the great advantages of these spaces is the in-house catering kitchen from DineAmic Catering. With access to all the DineAmic menus, hosts can choose from the offerings of Siena Tavern, Bar Siena, Bull & Bear, Public House and, of course, Prime & Provisions.
It's a unique and delicious variety that Clayton says her clients describe as, "out of this world amazing."
At the heart of the private event experience is the personal service.
"Clients rave about the attentive service of our staff and that genuine feeling of hospitality," Brunner says.
This is echoed by Clayton: "When we ask our clients if their event at P & P went well, the answer is always yes," she says, "which we planners love to hear!"
