5 DYNAMIC SPACES
Immerse yourself in the beauty and elegance of lush outdoor courtyards, relax in our stately tented pavilion or spacious indoor dining rooms and forget you’re just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago. With five dynamic indoor and outdoor event spaces, expansive tented pavilion and surrounding garden courtyards, we can create the perfect setting for your extraordinary event.
(1) The Pavilion
From romantic wedding ceremonies to corporate parties and fundraisers, our state-of-the-art, four-season outdoor tented pavilion sets the stage for truly remarkable events. Featuring 50 foot removable glass walls, this unique venue can easily be made open-air. And with air conditioning and heating, it provides a comfortable setting for your event – hot or cold, rain or shine.
The Pavilion features modern, crystal chandeliers, an 800 square foot dance floor, an adjoining terrace featuring a 72-foot long fire pit, all set alongside a beautiful and expansive courtyard with a vine-covered wedding arbor. For seated dinner up to 520 guests and 900 guests for cocktail style.
(2) Il Cortile (East Courtyard)
Saunter through wrought iron gates past brick walls adorned with flowing ivy to enter our magnificent outdoor gardens. Perfect for elegant ceremonies, receptions, cook outs and more, our east courtyard features a spacious enclosure filled with flowering trees, seasonal blooms and terra cotta pots reminiscent of a Tuscan garden.
Tasteful and elegant patio furniture provides ample seating for guests and portable canopies provide for overflowing food displays and garden cocktails. Courtyard events are easily transported to our indoor galleria and tented pavilion in cases of inclement weather.
(3) La Pergola
An open-air boutique venue for extraordinary events. This unique setting features a European-designed shade structure with a retractable roof, Moroccan brass sconces and beautiful travertine flooring. An adjoining, charming, indoor dining room boasts a stunning exhibition kitchen, granite cocktail tables, portable bars, 1,500 square feet of space, and fantastic food made fresh on premise. A lovely, expansive outdoor garden setting can be fully open or fully enclosed and air-conditioned, depending on the weather. For seated dinner up to 160 guests and for 300 guests cocktail style.
(4) La Sala Lucchese
Immerse yourself in Galleria Marchetti’s rich American and Italian history in this warm and inviting Italian ristorante. Featuring a vaulted ceiling and exposed kitchen, its authentic old-world charm wonderfully compliments the rustic homemade Italian cuisine that our family restaurant, the Como Inn, was known for. And its intimate size allows guests to feel as if they were dining in a friend’s kitchen, rather than at a restaurant.
Now open exclusively for private events, the Ristorante sets the tone for truly special occasions.
(5) La Sala Perugina
Created from the showroom that once housed Joe Marchetti’s famed Ferrari collection, the Galleria is a stylish and classic canvas on which to craft your one of a kind event. Large street level windows and glass doors allow for ample sunlight, and direct access to all other areas the Galleria makes it the heart of the entire facility.
And with its recently updated 3,000 square feet of entertainment space, portable bars and AV and meeting equipment, this versatile space can be transformed to suit any event.
