Chicago Venues Galore!

When hosting an event, the space itself can be the most important factor in successfully executing your vision. Chicago is definitely not lacking in some amazing spaces. There are always the tried and true/iconic venues like The Ritz Carlton, Harold Washington Library, Cafe Brauer at the Lincoln Park Zoo and A New Leaf. But some new, unique and chic spaces seem to be popping up everywhere. Here are just a few to consider if you are hosting an event in the near future.

Opening in November: Greenhouse Loft...For the Eco-Friendly Folks
The 3,500-square-foot raw space is located in Logan Square and features a sun-filled space called the Glass House as well as an 8,000-square-foot organic garden.

Dinner Party Time: Chicago Q and Sepia
Dying to host a dinner party but your place is just too dang small? How about a BBQ themed soiree at recently opened Chicago Q in the Gold Coast? Choose from the private octagon room that seats 12 or the wine room that seats 30. Best part? You don't have to cook for this dinner party...choose from items like kobe brisket prepared in wood-burning smokers, buttermilk mashed potatoes and bacon-cheddar hush puppies. Nothing says loving like comfort food. Mmmmm.

Le chic Sepia is opening an expanded private dining space that can host seated dinners for 80 or a cocktail reception for 180.

Get Lofty: Room 1520
This is a pretty amazing West Loop space. The Aérée Loft is open, modern, and clean. The Sky Loft upstairs is warmer-toned with a fireplace and views of downtown. Cozy home inspired event decor - overstuffed armchairs, area rugs, and other homey touches - is all the rage and the Sky Loft gives just that vibe. Perfect for a wedding or just about any occasion!
