About Bottom Lounge

Bottom Lounge is a unique 18,000 square foot multi-purpose event facility conveniently located in Chicago’s bustling West Loop, moments away from downtown Chicago and easily accessible from two expressways. Walking distance from Restaurant Row, Union Park, and the United Center, it is ideally situated for your wedding event.

Upstairs at Bottom Lounge offers a sophisticated, creative, and versatile space with a cool, artistic feel. It boasts 5,000 square feet of exposed brick indoor loft space that can be configured in endless arrangements to suit your needs, plus a full bar, DJ booth, P.A. system, and dance floor. At no additional cost, you also have access to an adjacent 2,000 square foot rooftop deck that will leave a distinct impression no one will forget.

In addition to the indoor loft space and outdoor patio, every rental includes access to our in-house furniture and decor (candles, café lights, reclaimed wood farm tables & more), full kitchen and bar staff and on-site event planner. For photo ops, there’s a customizable chalkboard wall, hand-painted mural from prolific Chicago graffiti artist Temper, and for an additional fee, a photo booth and collection of rare pinball machines that can be arranged as needed.

    Above and beyond anything we expected!

    I honestly cannot say enough about Natalie and the entire Bottom Lounge team. It was the first venue we visited and we not only fell in love with the space - but we especially fell in love with Natalie. She was so enthusiastic and made us comfortable with the whole wedding planning process. Throughout the entire process, Natalie was great with communicating with us and keeping us at ease. She was always available to answer all of my questions - no matter how small! She worked with us to create a special menu that reflected our travel theme and incorporated flavors from some of our favorite destinations. She and her team made it super easy and convenient for us to DIY a lot of our decor. We simply dropped them off ahead of time and they went to work creating the most amazing vision. I honestly cannot say enough. When I stepped off the elevator for our final walk through of the space I honestly got goosebumps. It looked above and beyond what I could have imagined. The day of coordination was super smooth and left us completely stress-free. Natalie and team handled all the transitions and made our day run seamlessly - we were able to just sit back and take it all in. Everyone was amazingly friendly. We had people coming up to us asking us how we found such an amazing venue. It is a beautiful space and they do a phenomenal job decorating. The el running past, the concert venue downstairs, the bar and the pinball machines all make for some unique experiences and some amazing pictures. Honestly, I whole-heartedly recommend Bottom Lounge to any couple looking to have a care-free, beautiful, memorable wedding.

    Highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for a unique and fun venue in Chicago! Bottom Lounge is very affordably priced compared to other loft type venues in the city, and their coordinator Natalie went above and beyond to make our vision come to life. We couldn't be happier with the experience we had with BL as our wedding reception space!

    I cannot say enough nice things about The Bottom Lounge and Natalie who manages the venue. The view from the balcony with a full moon and the city skyline (lit blue for the Cub's post-season) was breathtaking. The big window with the "L" train as a backdrop to our ceremony was just beautiful. We received so many compliments on the space... it was fantastic. I also have to say a huge thank you to Natalie, who swooped in and saved the day when our dessert didn't show up. She somehow managed to keep her cool and scour the city hunting down enough cupcakes to feed to our guests.. no one even noticed. The Bottom Lounge was a perfect venue for a less traditional, low maintenance bride. Thank you so much!
