Chicago provides all the big city comfort you'd expect to host a successful event. However, like anywhere else under the sun, it's a metro area that presents both advantages and disadvantages. You should find out what you stand to face before locking down a banquet hall venue in Chicago.

Advantages

  • Great food
    Chicago gets a huge thumbs up when it comes to its selections of dining establishments that offer finger-licking goodness. An occasion hosted at a banquet hall is worthy of a feast.

  • Diversity
    You'll find a banquet hall in one of the city's neighborhoods that reflects the spirit of your event. With 77 distinct neighborhoods that best display the city's diversity, Chicago is multicultural, tolerant, and welcoming.

  • The culture
    Chicago is big on its museums, theatres, and music venues. It goes to show that the city embraces cultural and artistic expression, and you won't have trouble finding a banquet hall that aligns with your purpose.

Disadvantages

  • Pollution
    The city's waterways have a well-known history of flooding and certain areas of the city are prone to dealing with sewage overflows. To be on the safe side, avoid venues located in the basement of buildings.
