A New Leaf on a Friday night might be as good as it gets in the city of Chicago from what I know of– maybe Garfield Park Conservatory? 

I am not sure if there are any art galleries that would host 50 people– 

I am currently trying to find a location for a rehearsal dinner in the city on a Friday night– and most nice restraurants require a $3500-$5500 F&B minimum– not sure what you are looking for.

Stan Mansion– might require some creativity on the inside, but is anon-traditional and definitley will fit your group.

Thru a mutual friend and our wedding videogropher (their studio is in the basement) we have found this hidden treasure. Check out the link and the video done by Kinema Group


Hope this can be another option for you.

I love West Loop Studios.  It is perfect for a smaller wedding!  I am in the wedding industry… I’d love to offer more advise if you need it.

I am getting married at Volo Wine bar this summer. It is (obviously) a restaurant, but we are getting married outside in their patio area, which also has a littlebarn (for lack of a better word) we also have the wine cellar for getting ready and pictures and things.

so you don’t have to stalk, here’s a wedding that was there last fall:



ETA: Our guest list is 30 people, we are just taking the back area, not the inside restaurant part. Which also means we don’t have to rent the whole place.
