Antiquare is a uniquely designed event venue based in Highland Park, IL. Offering a carefully composed, beautifully restored space for celebrations, this space is ideal for couples looking for a charming, elegant setting. From the imported furnishings to the century-old fittings, this stylish, luxurious setting can help you host the celebration of a lifetime. Antiquare originally began back in 2007 as an importer of exquisite European antiques. Slowly developing their services, they eventually opened their own showroom in 2011. In 2015, the space next door to their showroom became available, letting them expand their services to offer an elegant setting for celebratory gatherings. After an extensive revitalization of the space, they discovered a variety of beautiful, classic fittings underneath decades of additions and renovations. Now, century-old exposed beams present an airy, light-filled venue under a high ceiling. The original maple wood floors have also been restored to their former glory, providing the perfect stage for your first dance, speech, or embrace. To add a more modern touch to this storied setting, these expert designers have added a variety of contemporary flourishes. From the imported Turkish marble sink to the French Trumeau mirror glazes, this elegant space is adorned with an atmosphere of timeless luxury. Along with their beautifully reinvigorated event space, this venue also boasts a full gourmet kitchen with all the equipment needed for your wedding feast. From the top-of-the-line gas range and double ovens to the cappuccino machine, your caterers will have everything made available to them. Couples can even make use of a vast selection of imported decor and furnishings to add an extra touch of worldly glamour to their special celebration. While offering their own event planning services, Antique also welcomes couples to provide their own if requested. Outside vendors are welcome to this space, including caterers, letting you add your own personalized touch to your wedding celebration. Along with providing an expansive selection of furnishings, this venue also offers a dessert catering service. From homemade macarons to classic cheesecakes, these talented bakers can serve it up for you. Couples are also welcome to book a private tour of this venue, letting them see everything that this unique venue has to offer.
