I had my daughter's Prom send off here, nice size for small gatherings. Very clean and nice looking, in the beautiful area of Bronzeville. The owner Kevin and Ms. Elaine were so wonderful and accommodating and flexible. I will definitely book with Kevin again. The pricing was very affordable. Thank you Kevin.

We hosted a surprise birthday for my best friend Diane! Kevin was a great host and he provided everything such as tables, chairs for us! We enjoy the space a lot. There was a kitchen with a sink, kitchen table and microwave to handle our catering food. There was a bathroom, great amenties like the tv, a mini freezer and fridge, & he provided us with a nice 10 inch speaker too! He had a very organize way to providing the key, viewing the place before the actual event & had very great communication and transparency! Everything was great, and there were lots of street parking. I would 100% recommend & rebook!

Pros and Cons of Private Parties in Chicago


  • Diverse choice of private party venues
    Chicago boasts plenty of venues where you can host your party, from industrial warehouses to sophisticated lofts and light-filled residences. This means you can find the space that will cater to your needs and your design aesthetic.

  • Affordable rental prices
    Property prices in Chicago are still relatively affordable when compared to some other major cities in the United States, which means you can have your party in the heart of all the action without having to pay as much for the experience.
  • Professional vendors
    Chicago’s network of professional vendors is extensive, and there is no shortage of florists, DJs, caterers, or beauty professionals to bring your party visions to life.

  • Easy transportation options
    Have out-of-town or international guests attending your party? Chicago’s international airports and Union Station make it easy for guests to get into the city, whether they’re coming by plane or train.

  • Plenty to see and do
    Chicago boasts an abundance of cultural and sporting attractions, so you and your party guests can make a whole weekend of it. Get your cultural fix at the Art Institute of Chicago or see the White Sox in action before spending a fun-filled evening at Navy Pier.


  • Unfavorable weather
    The name “Windy City” says it all. Chicago’s winds can be relentless at times, which does detract from the appeal of being out and about exploring. In the summer, things can get very hot and humid, while in winter, the temperatures drop to bitterly cold levels.

  • Bad traffic
    Chicago’s traffic has a bad reputation, and when you consider that the streets regularly come to a standstill during rush hour, it’s easy to see why. This could be an issue if you plan on hosting your party in the city center or along one of its major transportation corridors.
  • Parking is difficult
    Associated with Chicago’s traffic issue is its parking problems, and it can be next-to-impossible to find a place to park in the downtown area. Opting to use taxis or ride-share services is one way to get around this issue, ensuring you and your party guests arrive on time.

  • Safety
    Chicago has a relatively high crime rate, particularly in certain neighborhoods.
  • High taxes
    Chicago has a few taxes that might come as a surprise to out-of-towners. Groceries and restaurant bills are taxed, which is something to keep in mind if you’re self-catering your party.

Famous Locations in Chicago

  • Millennium Park
    Sprawling across 24.5 acres, Millennium Park is an attraction-filled green space in the heart of Chicago. It’s home to the monumental Cloud Gate sculpture, the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, and the Lurie Garden, as well as the strikingly designed BP Pedestrian Bridge.
  • Art Institute of Chicago
    Home to nearly 300,000 works, the Art Institute of Chicago is one of the city’s premier cultural institutions and occupies an attractive Beaux-Arts-style building designed for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. It’s particularly renowned for its Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collections, with highlights including Grant Wood’s American Gothic and The Old Guitarist by Pablo Picasso.
  • Willis Tower
    The Willis Tower was the tallest office block in the world when it was built in 1970 and still dominates the Chicago skyline. It boasts a 103rd-floor SkyDeck that offers incredible views across the city and a glass-floored box known as “The Ledge” that’s designed for a vertigo-inducing experience.
