Why only 6 hours?
We handle all the heavy lifting- plain and simple. When you arrive your room is set up and you are ready to party. If you wish to provide items to personalize the space we can arrange for 1-2 hours to set these items up in advance. The typical saturday wedding in our space starts around 6pm with cocktails from 6:30-7:30, followed immediately by dinner, leaving about 3-4 hours for dancing, board games, twister, stand up comedy, spoken word or whatever! 

Why City View Loft?

This can be answered perhaps best in person. We understand our space is not for every client. We take time to get to know your venue needs and if we are not a perfect fit we would be happy to recommend some other wonderful venues we work with in the city that may better suit your needs. For more information, email us at info@cityviewloftchicago.com

How do we see the space?

What about parking?
We are located at 324 N Leavitt, Suite 200 in the Leavittown Lofts building. There is free street parking around our venue on Leavitt and Carroll Avenue. If you are attending an event at our location, please refer to your invitation for specific instructions on the guest entrance and parking. For many events, we use the Bell street entrance to the venue located at 327 N Bell Ave. There is free street parking on Bell.

Must we use your excellent caterer?
Yes. In order to keep our excellent level of service and our pricing competitive we have to be kind of strict on this.

LM Catering & Events is our exclusive caterer. However, we are pleased to work exclusively with India House for all Indian specialty menus. Please talk with a member of our sales team regarding details.


How much are tables, chairs, flatware and china?
We currently include (165) mahogany chivari chairs, (24) reclaimed wood dining tables and an antique podium.  Our caterer offers all the basic flatware, glassware and china. Upgrades are available for an additional fee.


How many people can join my party?

We can accommodate up to 150 people for an event.

Do you have any floorplans?
Yes, click [here] to see a sample floor plan.



Can we hang our own DIY decor?
DIY is amazing, but tends to increase your level of stress, requires a lot of pre-planning and really drives your friends and family crazy! All of that aside we will not allow you to climb a ladder (we'd hate to see you get hurt!). Because of this all decor must be hung by professionals.
