Perfect choice venue

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Fairlie on 4/27/24 and it was the perfect venue. We had approximately 140 people and the space felt like the perfect size - the dance floor area was very big and the dining tables were spaced out enough for people to feel comfortable moving around. The staff at Fairlie was incredibly helpful and easy to work with, and they had great recommendations for other vendors with experience in their space. We got a lot of compliments from our wedding guests about how cool the space was! Some major selling points of Fairlie for us (that other Chicago venues lacked): big free parking lot, lots of bathrooms, BYOB policy and a huge bar! Overall an amazing venue with some really great people in charge!!!

Amazing Venue!!!

Where to even begin, the venue is stunning and Andria was just amazing to work with! We are so happy with our choice to get married at Fairlie. The space, staff, and vibe are all incredible, and our guests are still talking about it. We cannot recommend this space more!!

Exquisite wedding venue with top notch customer service!

My husband and I got married on June 9th, 2023 at Fairlie. We can say with the utmost confidence that Fairlie is bar none when it comes to wedding venues in the city of Chicago. Our guests are still talking about the beauty of the venue, as well as the logistical perks such as the parking lot and access to free street parking. We thoroughly enjoyed working directly with Alexis to plan logistics, as well as with Andrea and the security team the day of. The entire team was accommodating, flexible & willing to make suggestions when needed! We were incredibly impressed with this venue & their team. Also...the tuk-tuk is an amazing touch!!! Entering the reception on the tuk-tuk is one of our favorite wedding day memories!!

Another special touch...Fairlie gifted us a personalized Fairlie decanter with our name and wedding date on it the evening of our rehearsal - we were so touched! This venue goes above & beyond for their clients. We would get married here all over again!!!

Thank you Fairlie team!!!
