Discover unique graduation party venues in Chicago

High school and college graduations are a great time to celebrate new beginnings. These major life milestones should not go unremarked and there's no better way to celebrate than holding a graduation party. Classy graduation venues are abundant in the Windy City. Rooftop lounges, restaurants, night clubs, and bars all rent space out for celebrating young people. But you can cater to any vibe; from chic to casual, with a bit of planning and the right event venue.

Where to host a graduation party in Chicago

Most venues that cater to general events will be able to host your graduation party. These include room rentals for weddings, conferences, baby showers, and birthdays. We recommend graduation party venues that offer extra entertainment close at hand or are decorated in a themed way.
Entertainment and great decor together is even better; one great place to host a graduation party in Chicago is K1 Speeds, an indoor go-kart race track in Addison and Buffalo Grove, IL. K1 hosts group parties, providing casual and competitive races, meals, and medals for the best drivers. Graduation party venues can even be educational; the Art Institute of Chicago offers space for graduations and other events. Cater to what your graduating teens enjoy doing and you'll be sure to hold a memorable party for them.

Chicago venues with audio-visual equipment for graduation parties

Just because a venue looks like it's a lot of fun doesn't mean you should jump right in with a reservation. Supporting technology like audio-visual equipment will make or break your party. Most graduation parties have a period of sharing memorable images from the school year, video recordings, and more. At the very least, you'll want to be playing music for your guests.
Venues set up for graduation parties will have speakers, microphones, laptops, bluetooth compatible devices, projectors, and other technology. That way, you can get set up and running with minimal fuss. Just be sure to ask first as some venues may only have part of what's on this list - or nothing if they offer space but don't specialize in parties.
Whether you're looking for a suit and dress affair downtown or a rowdy night out in slacks Chicago has no shortage of great venues. The only limitation is your imagination.
