Featuring Celebrity Bartender Jerry Kleiner

This August, Carnivale will take its vibrant bar scene to the next level with a full schedule of live music featuring some of Chicago’s most renowned Latin bands.  Every Wednesday from 7:30 PM – 11:00 PM, guests will enjoy live music and entertainment as they indulge in Carnivale’s soulful Latino cuisine and refreshing libations.  Admission is free (full schedule available below).

As a pre-music bonus, guests are invited to join Carnivale on Wednesday, August 11 as they host a Celebrity Bartender event with owner and restaurateur extraordinaire, Jerry Kleiner, slinging drinks behind the bar.  Guests will enjoy one complimentary cocktail and Carnivale will also provide signature small bites from Executive Chef David Dworshak including: Steak Quesadillas, Ropa Vieja on Crispy Plantains, Mini Vegetable Empanadas, and Guacamole and Chips.  Partygoers will have the opportunity to win raffle prizes including restaurant gift certificates and more as they help contribute to a great cause.

Guests who stick around after the Celebrity Bartending event will be treated to the music of Carpacho & Su Super Combo.  With their goal of getting the audience out of their seats and dancing, Carpacho plays a tropical mix of Salsa, Bossa Nova, Cumbia, Bolera and more.
