Discover fun Sweet 16 party places in Chicago

Sweet 16 birthday parties are meant to be a fun, unforgettable part of being a teenager. So you really want to plan ahead and choose just the right party place. Fortunately, Chicago has no shortage of fun spots that will instantly put a smile on your teens' faces.
Room 1520 is one of our favorites. This former factory building turned event loft is located in the artistic West Loop. You have the option of catering to any theme, from Hawaiian party to Halloween party to limo dinner party. All that's required is the right music, food, and props to bring it to life.
Many are aware that The Art Institute of Chicago is one of the world's oldest and largest art museums. But did you know that it offers 14 event spaces for guests, including sweet 16 birthday parties? Why not combine education with fun; after your teens work their way through thousands of years of art history they can unwind and enjoy cake in an indoor or outdoor event space.

Having a teen birthday celebration in Chicago

As fun as all of our places to have a Sweet 16 party in Chicago can be, knowing what your teen likes is key. A shopaholic or skydiving experience isn't for every kid., no matter how much fun you think it might be. We suggest running a few ideas by them first - though the confident parent may want to make it a surprise event instead.
The safe yet fun option is to hold a traditional party in an event space. For intimate gatherings of 5 to 20 people you have the option of renting repurposed lofts, rooftops, event halls, and outdoor garden spaces. For larger gatherings we recommend looking into restaurants like Bar Siena, an 8,000 sq. ft. space in Chicago's West Loop Restaurant Row. Each one of their fabulous dishes are made in-house from scratch. Ensuring your teens get a luxury dining experience to celebrate their 16th birthday.

Exciting Sweet 16 ideas in Chicago

If you're looking for something a bit more physical, we recommend escape rooms. Your kids have the chance to solve puzzles for a couple of hours before settling down for cake and presents. Escape Artistry in Bucktown offers fantasy narratives with comic book villains to stop in futuristic settings.
Driving practice is something we all hope our teens get better at. But there's always the chance to embrace the occasional wrong turn at K1 Speed. Their indoor go-kart track offers casual driving, 12 and 14-lap races, and catering so you're free to get your own road rage out at up to 45 mph. After all, there's no reason why parents can't join in on the fun.
