My husband and I had our wedding at Chez last October, and we couldn't have asked for a better venue! The space is beautiful and allowed us to have the elegant, intimate wedding we were looking for. The staff was so incredibly friendly and helpful; they are a big part of the... Read More reason we chose Chez over other venues. Lauren answered all of our questions and was super helpful throughout the planning process. We had so many compliments from guests; we know we picked the right place!

We recently got married at Chez, and all I have to say is WOW. It is an incredible venue! Our vision came to life here and we really were able to celebrate our dream wedding. We found that most of the loft venues in Chicago had a rustic/vintage vibe to it. It was pretty, but not... Read More our style. We really wanted a modern wedding that was also somewhat minimalist. Chez fit the bill perfectly. The lights, the windows, the tall ceilings - just so beautiful! Our guests also loved the venue and really enjoyed that it was so unique. We worked with both Laura and Kristie, and both were super helpful throughout the planning process. The venue also includes tables, chairs, and highboy/cabaret tables. It was also really important for my hubby and I to have our little dog as part of the ceremony (he was our ring boy). Chez was more than willing to accommodate for him, and even allowed him to come in the day before for the rehearsal (so he could practice also!). I seriously could not recommend this venue more.

I am a Wedding Planner with Storybook Weddings and Events here in Chicago, and I had the pleasure of having a wedding at Chez last month. First of all, the space itself is a wonderful place to have a private event or wedding. It is clean and set up nicely. And the best feature... Read More is that is all white, which makes it an easy space to work with when it comes to decor. We had Kehoe work it's magic and they totally transformed the space to the couple's vision. And not only is the actual space great, but their team is equally amazing. I worked with Lauren and Kristie during the planning process, and everything was executed wonderfully on the couple's wedding day. Lauren and Kristie are very quick to respond to your questions and have very calm energies... they are pros and they know what works best in the space. Thank you for all of your help, ladies! I highly recommend checking out Chez to host your next private event, whether it is social or corporate :)

A sophisticated venue for a dream wedding

If you're looking for an elegant, one of a kind wedding venue in Chicago, Chez may just be the perfect place for you. Upon our first tour I was blown away by the high ceilings, stunning drapes and awe inspiring staircase. Without a doubt, Chez is one of the most beautiful venues... Read More in Chicago. I also loved the history of the space, and how they made a point to share it - having housed performances of top singers like Frank Sinatra! Also, compared to other places I had seen, it was obvious whoever designed it had the renter in mind. The bridal suite was elegant and comfortable. The bathrooms were finished with excellent style. The place screams sophistication, which is exactly what I wanted for my wedding. Over all I had a great experience working with Chez - even given my contact changed half way through my engagement. Christine was such a delight, but Louise picked up where she left off and made a point to be well informed of everything we had initially discussed. Louise was so accommodating - we were having a piano delivered and it was going to cost extra to have it moved the same night as the wedding, so Louise let us have it be picked up first thing the next morning. Also, my husband insisted on a rehearsal in the space, and although it wasn't initially promised, Louise let us use the space the night before. Truly - Chez made my wedding dreams come true!

Gorgeous, Modern Venue in Great Location!

After our original wedding venue cancelled on us 5 weeks from our wedding, we found Chez and it turned out to be our perfect venue. During our first walk through, they were finishing up construction, but even then I knew it was exactly what I was looking for – modern, light, and... Read More just a beautiful space. We had both our ceremony and reception at Chez and it was a perfect size for our wedding of 115 guest. Chez can be transformed in an infinite number of ways in terms of how the space is divided (ceremony, reception, dance floor, cocktail area, etc) and also in terms of the atmosphere (lighting, draping, etc). In addition to the aesthetic appeal, functionally it is an amazing venue. The restrooms are beautiful and there are plenty of them. There is a gorgeous, private bridal suite for the bridal party to get ready in, relax, or secure personal belongings. It is in a fantastically convenient location – easily accessibly to public transportation, hotels, and cabs. On top of that, the Chez team is wonderful. We worked with Christine Breakey and she could not have been nicer or more accommodating. It was such a dream to find Chez after the nightmare of our original venue. I have nothing but beautiful memories and positive things to say about Chez!

Beautiful, Modern, Endlessly Helpful

I found Chez online when I was searching for a wedding venue. We were initially drawn to the space because of it's history and clean sleek lines. I scheduled a trip to see the space with my fiance and Christine showed us through on a "hard hat" tour. I absolutely fell in love at... Read More first site - before they added all the beautiful finishes! Our wedding was on the small side (60 guests) and non-traditional/modern. We didn't have anyone sit for the ceremony (as it lasted about 5 minutes) but transformed the staircase into a lovely backdrop with flowers. Chez truly is a blank canvas - Christine and the vendors she put me in touch with (Dilly Lily, Food for Thought and Art of Imagination) helped me accomplish every detail of my modern vision (and Christine helped persuade my traditional mom as well). I had a wonderful experience there and the best day of my life so far! Thank you so much to Chez!
