Looking for a unique/ unconventional event space...

Hi all-

We're looking for an event space; around 4000 square feet for around 150 people. We've searched quite a bit, but haven't found the ideal space just quite yet. It's for a wedding, and we're trying to avoid the "standard" wedding venues (I know that's terribly vague). Anyways, if anyone knows of a venue or a resource to look at, it would be very much appreciated.


  • I was just reminded of the wedding that we attended at the Chicago Historical Society. It was very interesting. I also saw that there was a function at the Mariano's on Halsted and Monroe. Unusual but beautiful setting for a smaller gathering like a rehearsal dinner. I love weddings. As Gary requested...please let us know your choice(s). Good luck.

  • Just wondering Kevin if you picked a place?
