Since opening in 2005, Carnivale has established itself as one of the premier dining experiences in Chicago’s West Loop. Exotic, energetic, and global, the festive atmosphere of Carnivale is a singular experience. We invite you to dine on unique Latin-inspired dishes created by Chef Rodolfo Cuadros while sipping drinks that run the gamut from muddled cocktails to aged tequila to complex wine — and a variety of other libations!
In addition to delicious food and unique drinks, Carnivale also features seven private party rooms to accommodate wedding receptions, business meetings, and a variety of other occasions. Each room offers a unique environment, but they all reflect the energy and passion of Carnivale.
Serving lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, Carnivale is the destination for Chicagoans who wish to enjoy global cuisine with Latin-American flair in an environment that reflects the passion of the chef!
