Style, Fashion and Beauty for Sophisticated Moms

Ok Chicago Moms, if you are like me and love hosting birthday parties for your sassy kids and all their friends, I know you are going to be so excited about Little Beans Café opening this week. This is a place that husband and I can get on board with when that annual celebration presents itself. Lucky for us both of our kiddos celebrate in the same month so I am hoping for a two for one this year!

Why all the hype about this new indoor play space? Well, Little Beans Cafe was designed for both kids and parents. Located between Lincoln Park and Bucktown, Little Beans Café combines the sophistication of an upscale coffee shop with a customized play land all under one roof.

If you are like most families in the city and on a mission to find a birthday venue that kids will actual enjoy and parents will not be tortured for 2 hours, then look no further. When it comes to hosting birthday parties, Little Beans Café has everyone covered. Parents can relax and enjoy time with friends, grab a cup Intelligentsia coffee in the café or chill in the parents lounge while the Bean Buddies take of every detail for your child’s special day.

One size does not fit all and Little Beans Café has created several party packages that include the basics or full service planning and customized activities. Food is catered by Leo’s Coney Island or Pequod’s pizza; outside food can be brought in with approval.

Option 1 – Room Rental Only: $325
Enjoy the entire space on a private basis (5,500 square feet) for 2 hours! Includes dedicated Bean Buddy (staff) for set-up/clean-up. Based on 15 kid party (plus parents). Each additional kid $5

Option 2 – Just A Little Help: $450
Private rental of the entire space for 2 hrs, two dedicated Bean Buddies, Balloons, Drinks, Paper Products, Goodie Bags. Based on 15 kid party (plus parents). Each additional kid $10

Option 3 – The Whole Shebang: $625
Private rental of the entire space- 2.5hrs, two dedicated Bean Buddies, Food Package for 15 people, Balloons, Cupcakes, Drinks (plus coffee drinks for parents), Paper Products, Goodie Bags, Includes 1 Themed Activity. Based on 15 kid party (plus parents). Each additional kid $15

If wowing your kids has become almost impossible, surprise him/her with a customized themed activity. Choose from selections such as a Superhero Party, Music and Movement, Messy Art, Cupcake Decorating, Candy Jewelry, Arts & Crafts or Interactive Video Game Extravaganza.
