About Us

Maple & Ash in Chicago is the perfect place to enjoy a wedding reception, whether it's a seated dinner or cocktail party. The award-winning Gold Coast steakhouse is incredibly spacious with modern flair, opulent touches and innovative menus. The executive chef combines forward thinking with his classic training to create unforgettable dishes. The cooking style and menu options are centered on the ethos of using a wood-burning grill. The 5,000-bottle wine program is a huge draw to this unusual steakhouse, and there is an extensive cocktail list to enjoy too. Maple & Ash has six venues to offer for a wedding reception.

The Atrium. Glass doors surround this semi- to private space that is situated in the middle of the dining room. The glass doors are covered with velvet drapes and sheer curtains, and may be closed or left open. A beautiful pearl necklace chandelier is the focal point of this stunning venue, hanging in the center. The Atrium accommodates 50 seated or 75 standing guests who enjoy spectacular views of the city through the skylights set in the 24-foot ceiling.

The State Street Room. To the side of the dining area is this semi-private space, which is separated from the rest of the restaurant by velvet curtains. The vibrant room overlooks State Street and is ideal for a cocktail reception, accommodating 28 seated or 40 standing guests.

The Main Dining Room. For a small wedding reception where privacy is not a concern but a bustling atmosphere is a must, up to 20 guests are able to dine together. A long dining table is set up and the reception takes place among other diners.

The Lounge. This luxurious venue is next to the dining room and features sleek cocktail tables, velvet seating and a stylish bar area. Up to 40 guests are catered to for a cocktail reception.

The Wine Cellar. For an intimate reception of eight guests, this venue is a memorable place to celebrate in. The couple and their guests enjoy small bites and champagne or wine tastings.

The Patio. Up to 80 seated guests enjoy dinner in open surroundings on the patio. Alternatively, 120 standing guests are accommodated for an al fresco cocktail reception.
