We had a wonderful experience having our wedding at Pinstripes in early October 2017! It was such a pleasure working with the on-site planner, Shannon. She was very attentive to detail, responsive to my wide range of questions, and very knowledgeable about how to optimize the... Read More venue for the best possible experience. We loved the vibe of the venue, and appreciated the indoor/outdoor possibilities with the river level patio. The food was delicious (and abundant!) and the staff at our wedding were all very helpful, even on the days before and after the wedding when we were finalizing details or picking up items left behind. We had a wonderful Pinstripes experience and I would highly recommend it to any bride looking for a fun, affordable downtown Chicago venue.

We had our wedding reception at Pinstripes Chicago and it was amazing! The room and river walk are beautiful! The service & waitstaff were incredible, so attentive & nice and the food was delicious! Our event coordinator, Shannon, was great- always super responsive and helpful... Read More down to the last details. We had a fairly strict budget that we wanted to stick with and Pinstripes made that possible without losing any of the important details. Excellent venue!

My husband and I had an incredible experience working with Pinstripes Chicago for our wedding reception. Before choosing it, we did a lot of online shopping for venues that checked off boxes on our "must have" list (e.g., large capacity, in Chicago, close to hotels, good food,... Read More some sort of outdoor space). Pinstripes was the first and only venue we actually visited; it checked off all of our boxes and we loved the event planner, Veronica, there. There was a change in hands a bit before our wedding because Veronica moved to another job, but the transition to working with Jessica was very smooth. Communication via email with Jessica was timely and helpful, and when we needed to have lengthier conversations, she was available via phone. We liked that Pinstripes had drink/food package options and that it included a wedding cake. We were able to bring family members with us to the tasting and the scratch family-style Italian food was DELISH. Stand-outs were the pork, potatoes, and risotto. Our guests raved about the food and the cake. We had a bit of a hiccup with valet parking the week of the wedding; apparently the city was changing zoning, so valet was not going to be available right outside of Pinstripes (no fault of theirs). However, Jessica made sure that our guests were well taken care of. She brought over information about a different valet option to our hotel and had a staff member stationed outside of the venue to direct our guests to parking. This is just one example of ways that Jessica and her team went above and beyond. Our vendors (and our moms!) worked seamlessly with Jessica. It was great to have outdoor space so that people could go out on the river walk during the reception. What was even better is that our wedding was on a Saturday night during the summer, so we could see the Navy Pier fireworks perfectly from Pinstripes! Such a bonus and we got some really great pictures of them. We also received a discount on a day-after brunch buffet. This was seriously one of the highlights of our wedding weekend! The brunch is amazing (especially the mini waffles with balsamic whipped cream)! Definitely highly recommend Pinstripes!

Read More raved about each and every one them. The presentation is so lovely too. The staff was so attentive and polite to all my guests the entire evening, just can't say enough about them. And also my guests played bocce ball and had a blast! They were also able to go outside on the river walk and enjoy the views of the city. Please stop by and see Veronica, believe me you will not be disappointed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Pinstripes Chicago- AMAZING and Affordable Wedding Venue

I cannot say enough good things about Pinstripes as the ceremony and reception venue for our wedding. Lisa, the Pinstripes Chicago event coordinator, went above and beyond to ensure everything came together perfectly and our day was flawless. Our guests raved about the venue-... Read More the outdoor space and cocktail hour area lined with floor to ceiling windows made for the most beautiful backdrop, and the 10:00pm fireworks on Saturday nights at Navy Pier were in full view for all of our guests which was an added bonus. The prices were so affordable which is unheard of in the city! Our guests still talk to us about how incredible the food was (DEFINITELY go with the salmon!) and about what a wonderful venue it was. The Pinstripes team really did everything they could to make our day special and beautiful, and we wouldn't have changed a thing. I would highly recommend Pinstripes as a wedding venue to anyone!

Our wedding reception at Pinstripes was a beautiful success. Not only was the food delicious but with the family style setting you get lots of choices and enough food to be more than satisfied.Our guests raved about the food, service and atmosphere. Our wedding planner, Jessica... Read More was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She was thorough, knowledgeable and so pleasant to work with. The weather cooperated so we were able to have our cocktails out on the Chicago river. It added such a nice touch to our wedding. Usually, you get what you pay for, but in this case I would say that we received above and beyond.
