Lumen offers Premium Catering Bar Service. Our offerings include small batch bourbons, premium wines and sparklers, craft beers, any libation you can dream up and even a few concoctions of our own! We’ll work with your event and budget to find the beverage selection and flavor pairings perfect for you. All libations are specially curated to be part of your dining experience. We specialize in pairing the cocktail with the hors d’oevres, the wine with the meal, the beer with the snacks.

Our Mixologists and certified Sommelier can find creative and perfect pairings for any theme and cuisine! Our wonderful chefs and caterers can raise the feast to the occasion!


Lumen works with a select group of spaces that offer one-of-a-kind settings in Central Illinois. Whether it’s an 1898 mansion with a hand-restored carousel, a modernist glass house in a prairie forest, University of Illinois facilities, Lincoln Square in Urbana or a 5,000 square foot post-and-beam barn, Lumen handles all the particulars so that you and your guests get nothing but enjoyment out of an event in a spectacular setting.
