Jeanine A. booked a baby shower for 35 people
The space was absolutely perfect for my sister's baby shower. With many ups and downs COVID brought, Laura truly worked with me and was accommodating from start to finish. It was easy to book and easy to find, which guests were truly happy about. SO many additional items like cake stands and chalk markers were provided, which make the venue space much more special and unique! I would be happy to attend or throw an event here in a heart beat!
Brianne C. booked a bridal shower for 17 people
This space was so perfect for my sisters bridal shower. They have everything you could need for your event but you are also able to bring your own stuff in. The staff was very helpful we had and Laura was very responsive throughout the booking process.
Charlene C. booked an event for 9 people
Laura and the team at Wicker Park Inn have been incredibly lovely people to work with for our micro-wedding this fall! Leading up the wedding, Laura answered all of my questions in a timely and professional manner and I greatly appreciated her patience as we figured out logistics and any last-minute changes. This was the perfect place for our venue-- the location in Wicker Park was near many cool restaurants and bars while being nestled in a quiet residential area. It was convenient for our family to stay at the Inn while renting the kitchen space for the ceremony, and the rooms themselves were very clean, modern, and stylish. Whether it's for a stylish staycation or a magical micro-wedding, I highly recommend this venue!

This space was perfect for my branding photoshoot! It looks exactly like the photos and the amount of natural lighting was perfect. The host was very quick to respond and so helpful throughout the whole planning process. Everything went really smoothly during the event as well. Highly recommend!
