We loved City View Loft!

We are so happy we chose to have our wedding at City View Loft! The space is beautiful and the staff were great to work with--they were on top of everything! The food from LM Catering was also delicious! We were initially a bit nervous since we wouldn't have the option of choosing our own caterer, but it made the planning process so much simpler and I still think about the hangar steak hors d'oeuvre! Seriously. We loved that CVL had all the furniture we were going to need, that they were BYOB, but also provided bartenders, and that they handled all the place-settings and linens. It was an amazing day thanks to an amazing venue!

Great place for a wedding

What a perfect place for a wedding ceremony and reception. We might not have seen many places in person during our search process in 2020, but once we came to City View, we knew it'd be the place we'd get married. The ceremony space downstairs is perfect, and the upstairs loft provides a beautiful view of the city and a space that can accommodate extensive decorations, or is just fine with minimal effort as it is perfect on its own. The service on wedding day was exceptional as everyone was friendly and fun, the food was great, and the tasting beforehand was a really good time, too! (My wife is insisting I highlight the food more, as it was amazing, especially the salmon and pull-apart breads!) Our coordinator changed from Paulette to Lexi about halfway through the planning process, which turned out to be a seamless transition. Lexi was extremely responsive, flexible with our changing guest count and table arrangements, and provided great advice the whole time. They also provided clear communication and direction as vaccine requirements came into effect two weeks before our wedding. We definitely made the right decision!

Lesley abs City View were perfect! I couldn’t ask for anything more. The venue was beautiful, Lesley was so helpful and didn’t miss a single detail. The staff was very attentive, and everyone raved about the food! We had the hanger steak, which was so tender, and the roasted chicken. People were talking about the chicken for days to come.

City View Loft has risen fast to become one of Chicago's preferred venues for mid-size weddings, and a true anchor of the Near West Side. As Chicago DJs who have performed at City View Loft, we especially appreciate its warm atmosphere, the helpfulness of its staff, and its perfect acoustics. With a high ceiling, and no carpeting soaking up the sound, a DJ's speakers don't have to run at maximum volume to be heard clearly in every corner of the room. So dancers can dance, talkers can talk, and everyone has a great time. Plus, its views of the Chicago skyline are a wonderful backdrop for wedding photos.
