pop-up shop

I am an artist. I am interested in using your space for a Pop-up Shop. Please let me know if this is an event you host. With pop-up shops you usually don't know exactly how many people with come but its for people to buy merchandise and leave so I think it can work out so the space won't be at max capacity.

Having a Pop-Up in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Pop-Ups. With 80+ spaces available for rent in neighborhoods across the city, you can find just the space you imagined at your budget.

Since planning Pop-Ups is different in every city, here are a few things to keep in mind as you go:

Having a Pop-Up in Chicago costs an average of $163 per hour for the venue. You can find smaller spaces (16 people or less) for closer to $138 and larger spaces (76 or more) run about $212 per hour.

Most Pop-Ups get started between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. and run 5 hours in length. pop up retail spaces in Chicago tend to run slightly larger than average with 46 attendees.

You can find just about any type of space in Chicago, but the most popular for Pop-Ups are restaurants and galleries. We’d guess there are a few of both in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, seeing that it’s the reigning hot-spot for pop up retail spaces.

Chicago Peerspace hosts have welcomed 58800+ people into their pop up retail spaces with an average review of 4.9 stars across 813 reviewers. 98% of guests said they would book again.
