With a house tucked into the back of a garden front yard, in the middle of Boystown, near many restaurants, bars, the space is perfect to be both in Chicago and to feel like you have gotten away. The space is perfect for photo shoots, small parties - baby/bridal showers, birthday, graduation, happy hours, pop-ups (with access to foot traffic - can definitely peddle some items from the front yard) and anything else you can think of! If you are just looking to have a small gathering, and don't need access to the full range of the kitchen, living room and dining room and are just looking to book a table with a fire pit or just have some outside space to chill with a few people, we also book tables by the hour (based on a per person rate) - feel free to contact me if this is a more suitable option. This space will feel like you are at home, hosting a party, but not having to do cleanup! Come in, decorate as you like and voila - you have your party! We will have water, coffee, tea, plates, utensils and if you need something specific - just ask and we will see what we can do! You will also have access to the refrigerator so you can keep party items cold! We do not provide catering or alcohol, but we do have a partnership with some companies if you would like to outsource this. Otherwise, feel free to use the kitchen, order out and BYOB. There are plenty of places for people to sit and be physically distanced and be outside. When you book you get access to the dining area, living room area and kitchen area. We have a canopy to cover up the main deck winter through rainy season, and in summer if the weather takes a turn we can put the canopy back up. We have a gas fire pit (a wood fire pit as well, but this is an extra charge), electric and propane heaters (along with blankets), to keep guest warm and cozy. We can arrange the space in whatever way works for what you are trying to accomplish. The house is a bed and breakfast and will happily let renters of the space peak into the rooms (if there are no guest booked in the room). This also means that our regular guest will be coming in and out, but they are asked to be respectful of your party and we just ask that you allow them to easily come in and out. We want to encourage community and fun! Since we are off Halsted, many people will be walking by and love to take pictures of the space, so be prepared to feel like you are in an exclusive party :). We will make sure that the space is clean for you, and just ask that you throw garbage away before you leave. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We can also arrange showings if you would like to see the space before your event or before booking. We hope to see you soon!

Kirsti A. booked an elopement party for 6 people
Ashley’s space was gorgeous and perfect for my elopement. She was very responsive and considerate, offering to FaceTime with me to view the space before booking since I came up from Texas and couldn’t see it in person. It’s exactly as pictured and my ceremony was perfect. I highly recommend this space!

Beautiful space, and extremely easy to work with. It was the perfect atmosphere we were looking for. Nice spaces for mingling and the ability to move inside/outside was amazing. Our musician setup on the porch and it was perfect for everyone to be able to hear/see him! The person who met us was so accommodating and made setup a breeze!
