Frequently Asked Questions

Group activities take a little more planning to pull off than solo ventures. Thankfully, Chicago is a major entertainment venue, with live music, drinks, games, sports, and anything else you can imagine close at hand. From indoor skydiving to ping pong cocktail bars, there is something for everyone in the Windy City.
We'd recommend starting with reaching out to your coworkers, friends, and other group invitees. Indoor skydiving, rock climbing, and other adventure group activity venues are exciting but certainly not for everyone. A luxury experience, with classy surroundings, quiet music, formal attire, and global cuisine might be a better option.
We also need to make sure our chosen group activity venue can host the number of people we have in mind. Cozy speakeasy cocktail bars are a good fit for small groups while a rooftop bar may be better able to seat a group of 200. Should your group activity venue have a view of the skyline, as many outdoor gathering spaces do? Or are you looking for something private and intimate, such as a rented auditorium? All of these and more are available here in Chicago.
Luxury gathering venues in Chicago are some of the best in the nation. As a major city it offers venues catering to all tastes. Whether you're looking for an urban experience, a chic garden party, a historic hotel gathering, or a lively banquet hall, you're sure to find it here.
The Signature Lounge at the 96th is adjacent to Chicago's Magnificent Mile. As a restaurant, lounge, and private event space, Signature offers unparalleled views from the historic 875 North Michigan Ave building. A diverse cocktail menu and upscale dining complete the package for your guests.
For even larger events, we recommend the Greenhouse Loft in Logan Square. Sitting atop the Green Exchange Business Center, the 3600 square foot space is a major event, wedding, conference, and Chicago luxury party venue. Airy ceilings and abundant natural light make it a fantastic place to appreciate the summer sun while still enjoying some air conditioning.
Outdoor gathering spaces mean fresh air, ample sunshine, and a chance to get our legs moving. Many of the top spaces have grounds that are full of flowers chosen for their seasonal beauty. One example is the Chicago Botanic Gardens. The canopied terrace of McGinley Pavilion provides cover from a swift change in weather without sacrificing the potential for guests to wander the gardens.
For something classically inspired and unforgettable, try the Rose Terrace. Here, dinner and wedding guests drink and mingle, surrounded by fragrant rose blossoms. In short, the sheer diversity of indoor and outdoor gathering venues in Chicago is unparalleled.
