The Crystal Gardens on Navy Pier, operated by Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants, is a beautiful indoor, one-acre, botanical garden. This six-story glass atrium with a 50 foot arched ceiling holds over 80 live palm trees, lush foliage, hanging “twinkle lights” and dancing “leapfrog” fountains. A partial garden rental is ideal for up to 225 guests and will secure 2/3 of the gardens, private. Other Navy Pier guests can walk through one side of the gardens, but they cannot access your event space. A Full Garden rental can accommodate up to 525 guests and will secure the entire Crystal Gardens, private. It is ideal for 225 guests or more. There is no rental fee, but there is a food & beverage minimum based on your event date.
