Our Favorite Event Venues in Chicago: University Club of Chicago
If you’re keeping up with our blog posts, then you already realize that we’ve been sporadically writing a series about some of our favorite event venues in Chicago. If you’re new to the site and would like to check out our previous event venue articles, click right here.
As with our previous articles on the topic, we definitely want you to realize that our list is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all the great event and wedding reception venues in Chicago. It is intended to show off the venues we know best.
Admittedly, there are a lot of great event venues in the Chicago area, and unfortunately, not all of them will make our series. We also realize that most venues aren’t a one size fits all situation, and what makes a perfect venue for you may be totally different than what we consider the best place to hold an event.
With that little disclaimer out of the way, keep in mind that we can definitely help you find the venue that fits your and your preferences…even it didn’t make our list. (click here to reach out to us)
Next up in our series is The University Club of Chicago.
Probably the closest thing to a one size fits all venue, University Club of Chicago features over 15 rooms of various sizes that are available for you to host your corporate event, wedding reception, or any other type of private event.
Founded by a small group of university graduates in 1887, the University Club is an established organization that has a deep heritage in the Chicago area. The original idea of the organization was simple – to foster an appreciation of literature and the arts and to have an environment where members and their guests could “draw upon the sustaining values of a common educational experience.”
Located in the heart of downtown Chicago and just steps away from Millennium Park’s picture-perfect Lurie Garden and the Art Institute, The University Club would make add lots of history and character to your event. For those how like such things, it is the perfect venue for your big day. They also offer a top-notch catering team to help bring your unique ideas and vision for a perfect event to life.
Not just a venue for weddings and receptions, it’s also perfect for prenuptial dinners, bridal luncheons, and/or a post-wedding brunch before departing on your honeymoon.
