Frequently Asked Questions

Explore exciting event venues in Chicago

It's time to hold a special event in the Windy City! What sort of event do you have in mind? Is there a bat mitzvah to plan for? A bachelor party? Or maybe you just want to have a grand time just because you can. Chicago has no shortage of event venues to choose from.
Many of the most exciting event venues in Chicago area restaurants, performance halls, bars, and rooftop venues. Colored lights, big audiences, drinks, and skyline views provide an exciting experience that's not to be missed. Yet there's something to be said for a more intimate venue as well. Family holidays, Thanksgiving dinners, memorial services, retirements, and other events where the guests all know one another are best held in small event spaces. Hotels, restaurants, and cafes offer fantastic spaces for these sorts of events.

Discover Chicago BYOB event venues

Instead of relying on the venue to provide the drinks, why not do it yourself? Bring your own bottle event venues are plentiful in Chicago. From rustic barns for byob weddings to Italian restaurants and sushi bars that let you bring a great drink…Byob is a great way to party without worrying about the cost of drinks. You can also rest assured that the venue will have your favorites since you'll be bringing it, after all.

Unique event locations in Chicago

The mark of a great party starts with an unforgettable venue. One that guests talk about for many years to come. If you're looking for a very unique event venue in Chicago start with historic surroundings. Chicago has many buildings over a century old and the mansions of the Gold Coast are often available for event rentals. One of our favorites is the International Museum of Surgical Science, on North Lake Shore Drive. Formerly a family mansion, the elegant settings include Italian marble flooring, statues, murals, and fireplaces. Any event rental offers complete access to North America's only museum dedicated to surgical science, making it an educational experience as well.
Another fantastic event location is the House of Blues, one of the most technologically equipped and spacious performance spots in the city. This 55,00 sq. ft. space includes four levels, modern audio-visual tech, and an in-house restaurant and bar to keep people fed and watered. House of Blues describes themselves as "part Mississippi Delta juke joint and part 1920's opera house," to give you an idea of the atmosphere.
