This space was fantastic! We rented it for my wife's baby shower and it was the perfect. This venue comes with tables and chairs but we were able to bring in an extra folding table for gifts. Chelsea was very helpful and responsive to any inquiries. I can't compliment her enough, highly recommend, would definitely book again.
Loved the space! I booked this space to celebrate my sister's baby shower with appoximately 50 people and had a great time. All of our needs were met and exceeded our expectations. Chelsea was very helpful and accomadating as well.
This space was really nice and well kept. It was a little challenging to find initially, but Chelsea provided very good details, including a visual to assist and pass on to our guests. She was very accommodating and flexible. The restrooms were very clean and the kitchen was clean. The refrigerator was not the best, but it was noted upon arrival. We did have to clean the walkway area of debris prior to our guests arriving, but my dad didn't mind (it kept him busy while we were decorating and setting up the food). The piano was a plus and our pianist was able to go right in and play. One thing to note, we thought there would be a view of the Chicago River, but there was none. Parking was convenient as well. We booked the day of a baseball game, so traffic was hectic in the area, so I would plan better timing when booking this space in the future.
What a fantastic space—bright and roomy! Chelsea and the other staff were terrific to work with and helped our event run seamlessly. All our attendees loved the space. I would definitely use this space again.
