Crystal Gardens

crystal-gardens-logoThe Crystal Gardens 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. The Crystal Gardens, offering beautiful views of the lakefront, Chicago skyline and Navy Pier Ferris Wheel, is located just steps from the main entrance from Navy Pier on the second level.  

Operated by Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants, this venue is a magnificent place to host your next corporate or social event.

The Crystal Gardens can accommodate groups of 100 to 1,500 guests. Each event is individually planned by one of our sales and catering representatives to ensure a customized menu and a unique experience for each of our clients. For more information visit or contact Kerry Bowler at 1-312-595-5436 or

Please Note: The Family Pavilion, which houses several restaurants, retail shops, kiosks and more, has seen tremendous success over the years with the help of the Pier’s longstanding partners that have occupied it. Now, the space is set to complement those experiences and showcase a bold, contemporary design to match the new Food Experience that opened last summer. Drawing on Chicago authenticity, the renovation will also enhance the guest experience, with improved features and new partnerships to better accommodate guests as they explore the Pier and take advantage of the diverse offerings in the Family Pavilion. The Crystal Gardens will remain open throughout construction.
