“We hosted a happy hour event in conjunction with a convention being held at McCormick Place at Bar22. I plan a lot of these types of events, and Bar22 went above and beyond to make sure our event was a success. The staff was incredibly accommodating, fast, and friendly. The food was amazing and fairly priced. They even had a DJ and photographer onsite for our event, which was a surprise to us and very appreciated! Since the bar is within close distance of the convention center, it was the perfect spot for our folks to grab a drink, relax, and connect during a busy convention. Thank you to DJ & Mike for taking care of us! We will be back again!”

Visited 6/30/2019 for Brunch The place is not that big which is okay but they could use a bump. I visited because of a... birthday celebration and as an event planner I'm always looking for new and interesting venues. Food was so so. Buffet table too tall for short people, I'm tall and I still had to stand on my tip toes to see what was in the bottom of the container. Wrong containers for food. No labels on anything, a couple of people put hot sauce on their salad because they thought it was French dressing. Food was not replenished in appropriate amount of time. Needed to have salt and pepper out for use. Only saw one person with gloves on that was handling the food, he looked like he might have been the chef. Had a VIP area near the buffet which I would have eliminated, should have used that area for better buffet setup. Telephoned the day before my visit to inquire about parking and paying at the door. No one informed me that paying at the door was cash only. I think that was an important point to advise me about since I was inquiring about cost, thankfully I was with someone that had cash. Don't know if this was a regular DJ but I've had/seen better. Music was much too loud for such a small venue. Difficulty hearing while talking to someone in their ear...much too loud. I spoke with one employee that seemed open to suggestions, spoke with another gentleman that said he was the owner. He was doing what he could since they were short staffed, that I liked. Can't speak on the bar since I'm not a drinker. People seemed to be having a decent time but it doesn't take much when alcohol is involved. Would I go back...maybe but not likely. Would I have an event there...if I could have my own caterer and setup buffet differently.read more
