The team at CTG was so amazing!!! We had a destination wedding and when I say they were accommodating and loving. And then the day of the reception... they were working just as hard as our team. I am so impressed by them and truly appreciated all of thier patience and help and being so willing to accommodate for us!!!! Simply amazing and should be one of the best venues listed!!!Sent on 06/13/2021

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.Sent on 11/02/2019
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!Sent on 03/13/2020
Chicago Theater Works's reply:Thanks Angie! It was a beautiful day and we were lucky to have been a part of it. We wish you both a lifetime of bliss!
