Michael was amazing with helping us host my boyfriends 30th surprise party! The space is absolutely beautiful and exactly like the pictures above. He was very considerate in terms of allowing our friends to set up decorations prior to our arrival, and very fast at communicating whenever we had questions. Will definitely come again whenever we need another spot for a surprise party :)

Michael has a beautiful home - but I was surprised to discover it is Michael's literal home - and he and his family were present at the property while we were there, and even passed through during our event! It was not a huge deal, and I know Michael and family did their best to stay out of our way, but it was an unexpected surprise. We had a party of 15; I'd learned ahead of time that nothing in the kitchen is available for use except the oven (no access to dishware/drinkware/dishwasher) and the space to keep food and drinks cold was very limited - would be something to keep in mind for a larger event. As it says in the listing, shoes are not permitted inside the house (or shoe coverings required) - understandable but not ideal, depending on what kind of event is being hosted. Again - none of these things were detrimental to our event, but they are things I wish would have been made more clear ahead of time. The space served our purposes (a birthday party) and I would likely book again. Michael was a responsive and hospitable host.

Tips on How to Organize Home Parties in Chicago

Hosting a party at a private home is a wonderful way to celebrate any special occasion, such as birthdays and holidays. Chicago offers various venues for hosting your parties, from clubs and bars to private residences. Whether you are throwing a low-key gathering with friends or an extravagant bash, here are some tips on how to organize home parties in Chicago:

  • Research the Venue: Make sure you research the venue you plan to host your party. Some locations may require you to obtain special permits before hosting a party; others may have certain noise levels and decorations limitations.

  • Decide on Themes and Menus: To create a memorable experience for your guests, consider having themed menus or decorations. You can also plan activities like dance performances or karaoke competitions that fit your party's theme.

  • Prepare an Invitation List: To ensure that your event runs smoothly, it is essential to prepare an invitation list beforehand. Inviting too many people can make it difficult for guests to move around freely; meanwhile inviting too few people could leave things feeling empty and awkward.

  • Consider Hiring Help: Depending on the size of the event, it might be beneficial to hire help to keep things running smoothly throughout the night. This could include servers to help distribute food and drinks or DJs, bands, or other performers who enhance your event's ambiance.
