There are no surprise fees or charges as the wedding gets closer. The first meeting at the venue will result in the creation of a timeline of your wedding and the design on how the rooms will be set up. They provide beverage services on-site and are flexible with your options. You can serve a variety of beer, wine, liquor, champagne, and signature drinks during an open, limited, or cash bar. You have the option to use an outside caterer and there is a staging kitchen they have access to the day of the wedding. A dedicated team of staff will set up and clean up the spaces for the wedding and be on-hand on the wedding day to ensure everything goes off without a hitch. Chicago Theater Works does have tables, chairs, stage, dance floor, furniture, audio equipment, and lighting to use.

    Service, Flexibility, Convenience, Price

    The staff at Chicago Theater Works, Lisa and Bill, provided excellent service and flexibility prior to and during our event. The space is beautiful, and it is conveniently located within walking distance to the Belmont Red Line. If you have a lot of people driving in, Lake Shore Drive is just a few minutes away, and a nearby parking lot can be rented at a reasonable price. (We had few driving, so we did not rent it, but it's worth mentioning.) They have a terrific variety of bar selections, and their premium bar package was the best price I've ever seen per person. The space rental, which is yours for 10 hours as of this writing, is also the most reasonable we found. They do not increase any prices because you are a wedding. I repeat, they do not increase any prices because you are a wedding. As my husband and I planned our wedding, one of the aspects of we liked least was how every venue increased prices 2-6x just because you said wedding.

    For the service, flexibility, convenience, and price offered by the Chicago Theater Works, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Wonderful experience - beginning to end

    My husband and I just had our wedding here a week ago. The whole event was so smooth and effortless on our day. Lisa was always quick to respond and very helpful during the planning stages. She also helped work the bar during the wedding. All of the tables and decor were set up exactly how we planned in our meeting before the big day and our guests were served quite swiftly at the bar so we really didn't worry about anything during our event. I really don't think we could have gotten a better value for a wedding venue, it was great!
