Finding the right event venue for your corporate party can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be stressful! The most important thing is to know what you are looking for and what your needs are so you can be picky from the start and narrow down your options as soon as possible.
Our corporate party guests enjoy coming to CityGate Grille because the food is incredible, the spaces are set up to facilitate fun and friendship, and the service is first-rate. We do our best to make sure there’s no guesswork for you and our event planners will come alongside you to help you decide what will work best for your group.
Our event menu offerings are quite extensive, therefore we are confident you will find exactly what you need for your group. Gluten-free options are clearly labeled, which makes it easier for you to accommodate your guests’ needs, ensuring that each person feels attended to and included.
At a CityGate Grille corporate party, you can serve your guests hot and cold hors d’oeuvres with options for selecting each dish yourself or purchasing displays that are priced per person such as a crudité or seafood display.
Next, we offer butcher block carving stations with uniformed chefs on duty to provide a delicious and sensory-stimulating experience. Or, you can do a full dinner menu which includes soup, salad and an entree for only $35 per guest. Dinner packages also include soft drinks, coffee, and tea.
Of course, we also offer delectable desserts which you can order separately or as part of a sweet table.
If you’re looking to also provide alcoholic drinks during your corporate party, we have three different options for per-person beverage packages. We also offer a hosted consumption bar, a beer and wine bar, a cash bar, or a signature drink option.
If you decide to host your corporate party at lunchtime, we can provide a great lunch menu as well!
The menu file also answers frequently asked questions and notes possible additional charges, so you know what to expect up front.
Wall Street Room
The Wall Street Room is perfect for hosting a party for your senior leadership or for your small business team! You and up to 23 other colleagues can enjoy delicious food and refreshing drinks in a cozier setting as you celebrate all of this year’s accomplishments and look ahead to the future.
Trading Floor Room
If you need a space that can accommodate up to 50 people, the Trading Floor Room is made for you. Here you have a little more space to mingle and exchange gifts or play a game!
The Terrace Room is our largest event space, with floor-to-ceiling windows which make it feel even more spacious. You can also rent the patio with the Terrace Room for more variety!
Our patio is magical, with lights strung up all around and a fire pit! Here guests can cool off in the fresh air or take an introvert moment if it’s getting a little too loud inside.
If you’re planning to make announcements, give a speech, show a PowerPoint, play music, or host games, we have the equipment you need in-house, so you don’t need to rent it somewhere else! We have a podium that you can connect your laptop to, a hand-held microphone and a lavalier microphone, a DVD player, 4 flat-screen TVs, built-in screens and projectors, and acoustic ceiling tiles to ensure sound quality. Get ready to have fun and keep your people engaged during your corporate party!
Our guests cannot stop commenting on how great our servers are, and we wholeheartedly agree! They are competent, knowledgeable about the menu and drinks, and they will do all they can to ensure you have what you need. When it comes to hosting a corporate party, our team works together to keep each guest happy so that you don’t have to worry. When you entrust us with your party, we serve you every step of the way.
Customer Yelp Reviews
Scott T. from Plainfield, 2014 (4 stars)
“Was here for a company holiday dinner. Food, atmosphere, and service was very good. Later took my own staff to lunch with similar experience. Very relaxed, classy, and enjoyable.
... I have read other reviews and talked with others who have been here that it seems kind of empty at times. May be the corporate or off the main drive location, but well worth the effort.
Will definitely be back.”
Eezy B. from Chicago, 2018 (5 stars)
“Recently had a corporate dinner for about 35 people. We had guests with many different dietary requirements and the chef was very easy to work with to make sure everyone had something to eat during every course. The private dining area was perfect for conversations within the tables as well as group conversations that happened between tables. The food and service were great. Highly recommend, especially if you are doing anything in conjunction with Hotel Arista. Molly at HA can coordinate everything you need with City Gate Grille.”
Roberta Saloga, 2018 (5 stars)
