Great space that had a big wow factor with all our guests. The space shows very well, requires no decoration and the tables/seating is customizable and set up any way you want. Fridge, oven available for some items. BYOB and BYO Food helps a lot and the two members of the Mars Gallery team were super helpful all night (bartending and food/receiving guests etc.).
Amazing venue to host a party - Barbara is an excellent host and great to work with. Fast communication, easy set up/clean up process, and overall made us feel super comfortable throughout. The space itself is great with a wonderful sound system and fun places to take pictures throughout. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Barbara was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire booking process. The space is beautiful and her staff did a good job setting everything up and making sure we were comfortable throughout the evening. Definitely a cool space to have an intimate gathering!
What a wonderful experience! My husband and I hosted a party for around 60 guests at this venue. Everything turned out great. Barbara and her staff were extremely accommodating and helpful! Everyone that attended commented on how great the venue was. I would highly recommend this place!
Barbara was wonderful to work with and her venue is beautiful. She and her crew helped me throw my mother the best 50th surprise party ever. If you are looking for an amazing, modern venue in Chicago, please look at Barbara’s art gallery ! She worked with me every step of the way and was always available for questions and assistance weeks before the party. Not to mention, she and her crew set up the decorations and food ( you don’t need much decoration in a beautiful art gallery) and cleaned up everything at the end. The BEST experience ! Everyone at the party raved about the venue and the support !
