Four Corners hospitality and TAO Group debuted the fifth iteration of the TAO nightlife concept in Chicago this month. Located in an 1892 building that was originally home to the Chicago Historical Society in River North, the two-level restaurant and nightclub dubbed TAO Chicago occupies 34,000 square feet of space and can accommodate groups of up to 1,800 guests.

Within the space are two venues separated from an operable wall. The rear club features 40-foot ceilings and a 10-foot custom-made Japanese bell (from which a giant disco ball descends), while the more intimate front club centers around an enclosed a DJ booth and Asian-inspired décor.

The opening party last weekend was filled with celebrities, adding to the spot’s heat factor. Among the VIP guests: actresses Kourtney Kardashian, Malika Haqq, Taraji P. Henson mingled with sports stars like Anthony Rizzo, Jon Lester and Israel Idonije. The cast of Chicago P.D. also stopped by, with Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney in tow.

TAO Chicago is also expected to be a hot spot for corporate events and dinners. The restaurant can seat up to 300 guests, and the full event space accommodates up to 800 for a seated meal. There are also multiple rooms for smaller private dinners. Chef Mike Armstrong oversees the dining program, crafting a robust menu of delicious small plates like crispy rice tuna and Chilean sea bass satay, plus seafood entrees, dim sum, barbecue, sushi, noodles, rice dishes and more.
