All-Weather Beer Garden
An outdoor & indoor event space with a retractable roof
Our most popular space is our heated/all-weather Beer Garden, adjacent the main bar. Lounge seating, tables and plenty of TVs make the area a comfortable extension of the main dining room. On warm days, you can eat and drink under open skies thanks to the Beer Garden’s retractable roof. Throughout the winter, the roof is closed and the beer garden’s stone fireplace is always stocked, creating a festive ambience for nighttime revelers. The beer garden is an ideal setting for Frontier’s signature whole animal dinners.
Second Floor Lounge
Company holiday parties, surprise parties, corporate events
Our 2nd floor upstairs lounge is perfect for special events and private gatherings. It features a full service bar, DJ booth, private restrooms and numerous flat screen televisions. The lounge has two large-screen AV projectors – suitable for viewing parties, presentations, and major sporting events. Exposed timber and natural brick accents provide a warm, inviting ambience for special events, and floor-to-ceiling windows add light and create a sense of space. A stone fireplace warms the room on cold nights and highlights the rustic charm. Please note there is no elevator to this space.
Witness the magic of Chef Brian Jupiter's open-air kitchen
Up to 12 guests can experience how Frontier’s unique menu makes it from kitchen to table and get a real sense of the work it takes to prepare and cook dishes like gator, elk, venison, antelope or whole-roasted pig to name a few. Lucky Chef’s Table guests who book in advance can request a special tasting menu, featuring a one-of-a-kind assemblage of Chef Jupiter’s creations. The chef’s table is the perfect place to enjoy Frontier’s signature whole animal offerings as well. Best of all, guests only need foresight to sit at the chef’s table – while it books up quickly, guests will pay nothing extra for the privilege of this unique vantage point.
A 40ft bar with exposed timber, natural brick, & state-of-the-art ice-tap draft lines
Walk-in customers are the bar’s mainstay, while table reservations can accommodate parties of 8-15 people. Guests enter Frontier through the main bar, which features state-of-the-art “ice tap” draft towers that line the bar, pouring a rotating variety of local craft and unique import beers, some of which can’t be found anywhere else in Chicago. Guests can also choose from over 30 bottled & canned beer as well as an array of wine and liquor. Multiple flat screen TVs stud the walls, displaying the best local teams.
Off Site Catering
HUNTED, FARMED, FORAGED & HARVESTED PLATES FOR SHARING
Like generations of pioneers who uprooted their lives and pushed for new beginnings in the American West, we prepare and cook our food in ingenious and tasty ways. Our menu pays tribute to what those adventurers ate and hunted on the trail, as we invite you to savor the modern day interpretations of their fare. Our food is best enjoyed in communal settings. We’ve captured the early pioneer’s celebration of family dinner gatherings in order to create you an unparalleled dining experience that is well paired and well fueled. Our bar features an array of domestic and regional craft beers, select fine wines, and house made craft cocktails, using only the freshest quality ingredients. And, our full liquor bar accommodates the most dedicated cocktail enthusiast. Let us cater your corporate event.
