About

On WeddingWire since 2018

Discover City Winery as the perfect venue for the modern-day couple, providing a truly unique nuptial experience while still including all the traditional wedding elements. Your cocktail hour takes place in Chicago's only fully-functioning winery, complete with stainless steel tanks framed by a warm, exposed wood interior, and our very own wines on tap. Transition seamlessly to a full dinner reception in the main space, with world-class production support for your favorite band or DJ. Step out of the city and into wine country.

We can accommodate various size weddings, whether it be an intimate group of 50, or up to 200 guests for a seated dinner with dancing. For more of a laid back and non-traditional wedding, we can host up to 350 guests for a cocktail style reception.

As a full service event space, we include all of the food and beverage catering, staffing, table setups with detailed floorplans, and access to the very best vendors who we have worked closely with on past events. Together, we will plan a memorable event for you and your guests.

Definitely recommend!!

We had our wedding at City Winery in October 2023 and it was incredible!! The ceremony and cocktail hour outside was beautiful - we loved that the patio felt private in the middle of the city, but also close to so many restaurants and places we love. The food was excellent and the staff & service were great. The reception in the concert venue was so much fun! It is the perfect balance for dinner and then transitioning into a dance party, which was very important to us. We worked with Bernadette who was wonderful and a big part in making the day run smoothly. She helped us make some last minute changes in appetizers & table arrangements, and made sure there were heaters when we learned the weather was going to be a little chilly. All in all, we were very happy we picked City Winery to celebrate our wedding and made so many memories!

City Winery was perfect!

City Winery was the perfect venue for our wedding! And Emily Fitzgerald was amazing to work with! We got married in July 2021, but we had our heart set on City Winery after seeing a wedding setup when we were on winery tour back in 2019. Emily and CW made everything perfect. We could not have been happier with the event and service the CW team provided. All the details, the setup, the FOOD. OMG the food! We have gotten so many compliments on the food. And the urban winery aesthetic was exactly what we were going for. The staff went above and beyond, especially D.J. who made sure my wife and I never had an empty glass and put our night over the top! They were also very gracious with the covid situation. Our original date was in September 2020, and they were very accommodating as we had to “replan” our wedding. They made all our guests feel very comfortable attending an event amidst the pandemic, even as we were able to have a somewhat normal wedding as Chicago had reduced restrictions in July. We highly recommend and cannot say enough good things about City Winery!

Perfect Venue - Everyone Should Consider

What is better than a gorgeous wedding venue in west loop with indoor/outdoor space? Well let me tell you - the gorgeous space was just the start of how wonderful this venue truly was. First off, I was a COVID bride and my original venue cancelled on me out of the blue - so with 6 months until my wedding my hopes were very low. I contacted City Winery and it was like the stars aligned and the couple getting married on my date had just decided to postpone their wedding. We went to see the space (during a snow storm), Nathan was sooo helpful showing us the space answered all of our questions and sent us home with a bottle of wine. From the moment we walked in the doors I knew it was perfect ( a million time better than our original venue). Getting the contract and signing that was so easy and they answered all of our questions. Couples - City Winery does everything for you food, venue, table clothes, tables etc. I can't tell you how rare this us! We worked with Emily who literally made my day perfect and made planning so easy even in the middle of a pandemic where rules were changing constantly, she coordinated with all my vendors the day off and literally handled everything - if there were issues I would have no idea because I was never bothered once and everything went so smoothly. The day was perfect and she organized a special moment for just me and my groom. People still rave about the food, wine and venue. The hardest part of wedding planned was deciding what to serve because we LOVED everything at the tasting - I mean everything. Also - they included Cava (sparkling wine) in the package. Everything was perfect - I love Emily and City Winery - everyone should get married here. We added on late night pizza and charcuterie boards to our happy hour - and the pricing was very reasonable. Oh the staff the day of was wonderful and had boxes for people to take pizza and cake to go - the pizza was incredible and Jessica (who helped us that night, handed me a box when I was walking out incase I hadn't eaten any - soooo nice). I mean they made everything so wonderful - I am probably forgetting 1000 things they did that put a smile on my face and made planning so easy! Seriously contact them you will be so happy you did!
