This independent experimental library has been used as a location for scenes as a coffeeshop, apartment, and (of course) a library, as well as staging areas for cast, crew and craft service during outdoor shoots in and around Humboldt Park. In the Reading Room, you'll be surrounded by the most eclectic collection of Chicago-crafted books, newspapers, magazines, comics, zines, artist books, journals, plans, novels, chapbooks, and cookbooks. The 600 square foot Reading Room has been called “cozy and welcoming” by the Chicago Reader, and yet is very flexible with chairs and tables that fold and a ramp for easy equipment load-in. The 1,000 square foot Exhibition Room (in the process of being photographed) is adjacent and has access both from outside and through the Reading Room. This room is a combination of dark turquoise walls, exposed brick, and glass block, with dark carpeting. It also has an exposed beam timber ceiling, as well as flexible furnishings and a moveable stage.

Pros and Cons of Meeting Spaces in Chicago

While the advantages of hosting a meeting in Chicago outweigh the disadvantages for most, there are still a few aspects to consider.

Advantages

  • Diverse choice of meeting venues
    Chicago’s diverse choice of meeting venues means you’ll have lots of options when finding a space to suit your needs. There are art-filled penthouses overlooking the city and historic speakeasies, all with the space requirements and facilities you need.

  • Affordability
    Chicago is relatively affordable when it comes to property prices, which means its meeting spaces generally cost less than some of the United States’ other major cities.

  • Equipment rentals
    If your meeting space in Chicago doesn’t come with the equipment you need, you can easily find rentals in the city. Whether it’s a projector, sound and audio gear, or just tables and chairs, Chicago’s equipment rental companies can assist.

  • Transportation options
    Getting to and from your meeting space in Chicago is easy thanks to the city’s efficient public transportation system of buses and trains. If you prefer a private option, there’s an abundance of taxis and ride-share services in the city, although you will have to compete with Chicago’s notorious traffic.
  • Cultural and sporting attractions
    One of the benefits of hosting a meeting or event in Chicago is its cultural and sporting attractions, offering your guests plenty of entertainment once the workday is finished. You can get lost in the city’s art galleries and interactive museums, see its famous baseball teams in action, or escape to its waterfront parks.

Disadvantages

  • Bad traffic
    While Chicago’s public transportation network is efficient, its traffic is notorious, which doesn’t make it ideal for those who want to drive themselves to and from meetings.

  • Challenging parking
    Chicago’s parking is also notorious, particularly in the downtown area where it can be almost impossible to find a space.

  • Crime
    Chicago’s reputation for crime is long-established, and, unfortunately, there is still a relatively high crime rate in the city today.
  • Unfavorable weather
    Nicknamed the “Windy City,” Chicago isn’t known for its favorable weather, which makes hosting meetings outdoors a challenge. You may have to compete with relentless winds in the spring, freezing cold temperatures in the winter, and hot and humid conditions in the summer.

  • High taxes
    If you’re coming from elsewhere in the United States, you might be surprised to learn that tax is charged on groceries and restaurant bills in Chicago.

Famous Locations in Chicago

  • Millennium Park
    Centered around the 110-ton Cloud Gate sculpture, this sprawling park is fringed by some of the city’s most famous landmarks. You can catch a show at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, escape to the beautiful Lurie Garden, or walk across the strikingly designed BP Pedestrian Bridge.

  • The Navy Pier
    Encompassing amusement-style attractions, waterfront restaurants, and 50 acres of gardens, the Navy Pier is one of Chicago’s most popular entertainment destinations. You can watch classics being performed at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, get hands-on at the Chicago Children’s Museum, or watch an immersive film at the 3D Imax Theater.

  • Willis Tower
    Once the tallest office buildings in the world, the Willis Tower is a 110-story skyscraper that dominates Chicago’s city skyline. It features an observation area called the SkyDeck on its 103rd floor, complete with a spine-tingling glass-floored box known as “The Ledge.”
