Historical. Cultural. Respectable.
Exclusive. Modern. Garden. Grand.
Chicago is a large city sprawling with event venues on every corner. With so many to choose from, here are some of the top featured locations that Food For Thought has partnered with.
Filled with grandeur and culture, the Art Institute Chicago is the ideal event space for any gala, wedding or other social event. The institute has several sizes of rooms available for rent to accommodate groups from 40 to 900 people.
The Garfield Park Conservatory is the best backdrop for any plant or nature lover — specifically rainforest or dessert cactus aficionados. This glass event space is one of the largest gardens in the world, fit for a smaller, more intimate wedding or event.
The Mae District is Food For Thought's very own venue. Located in Chicago's motor district, Mae District is an elegant and charming venue for your next event. With lots of natural light and a fairly blank slate, this historic building can match the wedding theme or branded reception of your dreams.
Every writer or literature lover should host their event at the American Writers Museum. Private events held in this space include access to all the open exhibits showcasing famous American writers and their works. The museum has several rooms to accommodate and hold guests for a plated dinner or cocktail party.
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is one of the Windy City's best hidden treasures. This event venue holds a large ballroom adorned in ornate architecture for your elegant wedding or decked-out masquerade party. It also has options for a corporate event, with lecture-style theater seating for up to 300 people.
The Chicago Architecture Center (CAC) is a modern event space with over 8,000 square feet of interactive galleries spanning two floors. This space is located in the heart of downtown for a breathtaking picture backdrop or for easy access to surrounding hotels. The CAC also has smaller rooms to host corporate meetings or events.
