First, let me say the venue looks far better in person than it does in the pics. It really exceeded my expectations. Hosting a Kid's Red Carpet required lots of colors and it certainly brightened up the space and actually made my decor stand out. Parking was easy (in front and nearby). The area is wonderful and easily accessible to downtown. Customer service, communication, and professionalism mean a lot to me and it is exactly what I received from beginning to end (to include days after my event). This is the most significant reason I rated my experience at 5-stars. Last, Andrew and the other gentlemen there were beyond helpful and ensured the setup and placement of tables and chairs (and even some of my decorations) were perfectly placed. They were friendly, high-energy, and personable. It is great to have venue staff there that are willing to ensure you have everything you need and offer any assistance they can. It is certainly a place I look forward to hosting other events in the future when I host in Chicago. I highly encourage this to be anyone's choice of venue (especially if you seek a nice amount of space for ppl to move around in.)

We had our wedding reception here. It’s a really beautiful place. We had a small celebration with dancing and place was just perfect! They have their own bar and make amazing cocktails. Bill was very professional and there were no hidden fees or charges.
