Chicago Restaurants With Private Outdoor Dining

Heated tents, domes, and greenhouses that you can have all to yourself.

Written by

If you want to eat outside at a restaurant in Chicago this winter, there are plenty of options with heated outdoor seating to keep you warm. But if you want to have a tent, dome, or small greenhouse all to yourself - either for a date, special occasion, or because large tents make you feel like a wedding guest - we made a list of the Chicago restaurants with private outdoor dining. And we’re keeping track of them all, separated by neighborhood, in this guide.

If you know a place that should be included, please send an email to chicago@theinfatuation.com.
