We are a historic landmark mansion located in Chicago's Prairie Avenue Historical District in the South Loop. One of our greatest attributes is our attention to detail and customer service. We are always on-site making sure everything goes as planned. The space is a total of 1800 square feet and is divided into 3 spaces. We are just 5 minutes from Downtown Chicago and 3 blocks from McCormick Place. The space has three distinct rooms, the art gallery, the parlor and the dining room. This offers a nice backdrop for events as well as the ability to have break out sessions or different simultaneous activities in different rooms. The rate is for the space tables, chairs, and black linens - all other equipment that is included in the rental price; high-speed wireless internet, microphone with amplifier, sound system that plays Pandora and water cooler so no need for plastic water bottles. We will work with you to make sure everything goes as planned as we pride ourselves in customer service. We also offer event planning support in terms of getting additional furniture, equipment and food. If serving alcohol and not using a caterer with liquor license we need to bring in a service that provides license, insurance and bartender but you can provide your own alcohol. (License/insurance $200.00, bartender $35.00 per hour) We have 5 parking spots on the side of the building and are sometimes able to rent a parking lot for an additional fee. Weddings - must add in at least 4 hours for set-up and 1 hour for tear-down.
We can help with coffee, catering, and furniture rental. We require 1-2 hours for set up and one hour for tear-down.
Elegant space, great hostess, a unique guest experience. This is what Marcy Baim and the Keith House staff offers. Marcy is the definition of hospitable. Her warm spirit, organizational skills, and warm heart is just what my team and I needed to execute our event. This is the second time that the Women's Board of the Chicago Urban League utilized the Keith House for our women in leadership tea. Thanks Marcy for making our event memorable and special.
We hosted our company's family bbq at the Keith House Mansion and it was simply a wonderful experience for both kids and adults. Everything was perfect and we all had an amazing time. Marcy, the owner made it so easy for us to enjoy ourselves and we couldn't have found a better venue to host our event. We would go back in a heartbeat! Thanks for everything! Nikki
I would book again in a heartbeat. Marcy was incredibly accommodating ensuring that all of our meeting needs were satisfied prior to attending the event. Marcy was available and attentive throughout the meeting. The space is unique and the neighborhood is amazing. Marcy recommended a local healthy caterer and the food exceeded our expectations. Thanks again!
The service and accommodations at the Keith House were perfect for my women's tea on a beautiful fall afternoon. The historic home is beautiful and sits on a quiet block. Marcy was the perfect host and worked well with the catering company. She even helped us secure parking and a bartender. Most venues do not provide table clothes and Marcy did.
Hello, the place was incredible, and the attention received form Marcy was outstanding, but the dinner was not really good, so perhaps the dinner service can improve and be at the level of the place.
