Purple Monkey Playroom is a bright, nurturing destination for young children, parents and caregivers nestled in the heart of Bucktown. We invite you to relax, connect with other adults, and enjoy free coffee, tea and WiFi as your children explore our whimsical space.

Purple Monkey’s thoughtful, 1,500 square foot playroom is designed with the education, enjoyment and safety of infants through preschoolers in mind. A plush, dedicated alcove will capture the curiosity of lap babies and crawlers with age-appropriate toys. Older kids will always be within your sightlines as they bounce, climb, build, read, color, and engage in imaginative play.

Purple Monkey Playroom is also the perfect party spot for your child's birthday - starting with the first - all the way through preschool. Our whimsical playroom will grab your little guests' imaginations as soon as they walk - or crawl - through the door. We are the venue and the entertainment all in one. Adults will enjoy the ease of relaxing with other celebrants as their kids enjoy the private space.
