Nestled in the heart of Chicago's North Center Neighborhood, right where the urban charm meets the tranquility of Horner Park and the Chicago River, the River Room is not just a space; it's the backdrop to your next unforgettable event. Whether you're hosting a chic wedding, a corporate gala, or a casual Sunday brunch party, this venue has got you covered with space for up to 250 guests—225 inside and a little extra elbow room when you spill out onto that gorgeous deck.

Main Event Space: Where Industrial Meets Instagrammable ✨

Imagine 3,500 square feet of exposed brick goodness, bathed in natural light from those huge windows, and 14ft ceilings that whisper (or shout, depending on your DJ) "let's celebrate." This fully customizable space is like a chameleon, ready to transform into whatever your heart desires, from dream weddings to the most talked-about corporate gatherings.

Outdoor Deck: Your Private Sunset Viewpoint 🌅

Step outside to the deck, and you're in for a treat with west-facing views of the Chicago River, making it the perfect spot for a sunset ceremony or a cocktail party. It's the ultimate flex space for any event, available year-round (weather permitting, because Chicago).

Private Suite: Get Ready in Style 🌟

Need a moment to breathe and prep? The River Room's private suite is your oasis. Skylights flood the space with natural light, making it perfect for those last-minute touch-ups or a peaceful retreat from the festivities.
