After having our wedding at Carnivale, I cannot understand how everyone in Chicago doesn't have their wedding here. It's difficult to even put into words what an incredible space this is, and photos really do not do it justice. From the moment we walked through the door, we knew that this special mixture of color and light and sound and vibe was the right place for us! And we weren't the only ones to react to the ambiance : every single guest at our wedding told us that it was the best they had been to!
Really, the deal doesn't get better than this! After looking into other spaces and options around Chicago, we had the pleasure to meet with Ali, who showed us around and who was such a pleasure to work with while we planned and coordinated the event.
Coordinating the wedding from the East Coast threw up so many obstacles-- some anticipated, some not-- but Ali's professional and prompt responses to all of my (many) queries, as well as the simply perfect backdrop that the space provided, always allowed us to take a sigh of relief knowing that even if everything else failed, everyone would eat and drink well in a beautiful venue. I received so many comments on the food and beverages from the guests, most of whom were anticipating the standard sparse and underwhelming wedding fare and were so pleased with the delicious and generous entrees they received instead.
Additionally, the staff was simply lovely. They were tremendous! Everyone was kind and warm and the whole show, once it was placed in their hands, ran like clockwork. Ali kept a cool head throughout the whole weekend and was always available to help guide us along the process. It was stressful seemingly every moment leading up to it, but once it began, it was everything we had hoped for and so much more. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Carnivale was my dream place to get married and everything from the food to the decor was perfect. Service was great and I had a fun time planning.

Had my wedding at Carnivale a few weeks ago. It was absolutely amazing! The food was obviously great, the room was gorgeous and the staff couldn't be better. I have received so many compliments on my wedding so far- with everyone mentioning how great of a place Carnivale is!
Add color to your wedding at Carnivale!
From the traditional to the unexpected, the unique Samba Room can accommodate up to 170 with a dance floor. The Samba Room has floor to ceiling windows, and all of Carnivale's color and flair.
