    5 star review for Chicago Theater Works!

    I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful Chicago Theater Works is! Bill and Dawn were incredibly friendly and so easy to work with; they always responded to my messages within an hour of me sending them, no matter the day. The venue itself is beautiful and the perfect size for an event capacity of anywhere between 50-150 people. I hosted a formal dance for my university's club and we had about 50 attendees, all of whom had plenty of space to dance, walk around, and mingle comfortably in the space.

    The venue has a spacious kitchen, private bathrooms, an extra room to get ready in, a stage, fully stocked bar, speaker system, and basically anything else you would need for most formal events. It has an extremely convenient location for any form of transportation, with free street parking on nearby side streets after 6pm and several public transportation stops within a 5-10 minute walk. Furthermore, the rustic aesthetic of the venue is absolutely gorgeous and helped all of our event photos look beautiful! All of our attendees loved the space and gave us great feedback, so I would absolutely recommend this space for anyone looking to host a wedding, formal dance, or any other type of event!

    Incredible - far and beyond what I had hoped for

    Chicago Theater Works is Chicago’s hidden gem. The space is so classy and beautiful and has everything a great event needs - perfect location with plenty of parking around, a stage, jumbo screen, dance floor, tons of tables, beautiful bar and reception area, large enough to accommodate up to 175 people, and all the audiovisual equipment you will need at no additional cost. Beyond all this, the staff from the owner to the bartenders to the events coordinator (Dawn), were just amazing. We held our Gala at CTW- it would not have been the success that it was without the CTW team. The team put me at such ease because they had everything covered and went over and beyond to give us everything that we needed.

    I can go on and on. Dawn was so organized and had everything handled in the most professional way going over and beyond for us every step of the way. Jordin went out of his way to keep me on schedule. Wow- I really didn’t expect to have a party planner on top of everything else. Everyone was so kind as well and just so invested in the success of our event. I had my wedding at a fancy hotel in Beverly Hills. CTW was just as good if not better and a lot more affordable!!!

    We can’t wait to have our next Gala at CTW. So many people were impressed with the venue and I’m sure will be holding their event with them future. I received so many comments about how wonderful the venue was throughout the night.

    I would not change a thing. I wish I could give CTW more than five stars. Thank you CTW for everything!! Our gala would not have been the success it was without you!! Until the next one!

    Chicago Theater Works's reply:

    Thank you so much for the for choosing CTW to host your special event. We look forward to hosting and working with you in the future. Your dedication to your work and making a difference in the community is so inspirational!

    Wonderful venue, wonderful staff!

    The team at Chicago Theater Works was incredible! We booked the venue in November, and they helped me host a beautiful New Year's Day wedding. I viewed several venues in Chicago and CTW was by far the best! The communication, flexibility and value allowed me to have an incredible event in my own neighborhood. I highly recommend this venue...everyone loved it!

    Chicago Theater Works's reply:

    Thank you both for such kind words; hosting your wedding was a delightful way to start our year. We sincerely wish you a lifetime of joy and prosperity.
