Unique Chicago Wedding Venues!

A question that we get asked so much is where do you find all of these cool venues. We thought we could One of the things that Liven It Up Events is known for is working in some unique spaces for weddings and events. We thought we should show off some of the locations for you to give some ideas on what to do in the spaces. Take a look!!!

The Ivy Room
Tucked away just off Michigan Avenue, The Ivy Room is a great space for either a sit down dinner or fun cocktail soiree!

The Newberry Library
A traditional look, The Newberry Library is a great choice of venue for a great combination of modern and traditional looks. The opera style chairs and tables are included in the rental!

Prairie Productions
This is an all white, totally modern space with the hanging lanterns that come with it! Super cool to do a sit down dinner or a cocktail style reception. We are here a ton and know both styles work!

Salvage One
The coolest antique store in the city rents out the space for events. Dates are really difficult to book but when you get it, you get to use whatever furniture including tables and chairs that are in inventory! Awesome space and the garden outback is super urban!

Stan Mansion
On the boulevard in Logan Square, Stan Mansion is a historic landmark. It has the grandiose effect when you walk into the main space. The cool thing about this space is there is a main room for the reception and a bar room on the same floor for cocktails or lounge!

Loft on Lake
Looking for a loft for the wedding in the West Look? Loft on Lake is a super cool as it doubles as a photography studio and event space on the weekends. With some beautful chandeliers mixed into the urban loft setting, it is a super cool space to throw a party or to get married in!

The Irish Heritage Center
On the north side of the city, on the 4th floor, is the Erin Room at The Irish Heritage Center. Completely renovated with hardwood floors, and crystal chandeliers, the Erin Room holds up to 400 guests. This is a gorgeous room to hold any event in.

Harold Washington Library
In one of the most historic parts of town, on the top floor of the Library is the Winter Garden Room. There is no doubt that your guests will now be wowed by the magnitude of the room, the detail on the ceiling and the trees in the room. Simply elegant for any affair!

Zhou B. Art Center
On the south side of the city, The Zhou B. Art Center is a funky space for a wedding or event. There are multiple rooms and floors and you can not forget the garden space down the street. Super cool for the urban chic event or wedding.

A New Leaf
There is no other place like this in the city. Nestled in the heart of Old Town, A New Leaf is 3 floors of wonders. The garden out back is private and serine, and always, the guests at events are taken back by it’s natural beauty.

Victor Hotel
You would never expect such a cool space in the Meat Market, would you? Newly renovated, Victor Hotel, also a club, is perfect for corporate or social events and even for the right couple a wedding. Take the funky look, mixed in the meat market setting and you have a truly urban event on your hands.

Chicago History Museum
As traditional as venues come, this is a gorgeous setting for a wedding. Probably best to do a sit down dinner, but the museum has indoor and outdoor space that are both divine!
