About Gallery 1028

Historic loft space for creative events.

WELCOME TO GALLERY 1028


A high end alternative space for creative events, in a gallery-like environment with
historic flair and close proximity to downtown Chicago.
HISTORY Gallery 1028, located on Goose Island, borrows a unique aesthetic and
flair from the island’s heritage. Predominantly inhabited by geese and
squatters until the 1860s, Goose Island became prime real estate for
Chicago’s industrial expansion. Its history as an industrial district lends
Gallery 1028 its edgy and modern feel as an event venue that is always
transformable.

MULTI-USE Loft-like, with vaulted ceiling, exposed brick, skylights, as well as wood
beams and floors, Gallery 1028 occupies 4,000 sq. ft and offers twoseparate
rooms plus two-separate foyers attached to each of the two
rooms. The clean and raw environment provides professional and private
designers alike with unlimited branding opportunities and creative design
concepts.

Gallery 1028 can be transformed to accommodate any type of event from product
launches, sample sales, hospitality suites, seminars, and other corporate events,
including networking receptions, exhibitions, and private parties.

Working with Gallery was one of the highlights of our whole experience. My now wife and I are from out of town and did most of our planning from a distance. We visited over a dozen venues and Gallery was hands down the best from flexibility to location to customer service. E-mails were answered within one day and they worked around our schedule. From tastings to the actual reception we loved every second. These guys are top notch, the food rocked and it hands down made the day what it was. Can thank them enough.

We loved our wedding at Gallery 1028! We fell in love right when we saw it - the perfect combination of rustic and intimate. Jeffrey was super responsive, and he always accommodated us when we had family in town who wanted to stop by and see our venue. The candles package made it the perfect romantic feel, and our guests raved about the food and staff from Calihan Catering. Even though I didn't think having a private/bridal suite was a big deal since I got ready at the hotel, it was so nice to have our own space for some one-on-one time right after the ceremony and to keep our stuff.

Gallery 1028 is an incredible venue! We had our wedding here 6/10/2017and we absolutely loved everything about our experience. The venue is beautiful - our guests raved about the space all night - and the free parking on Goose Island was ideal. We loved the location because we had so many people in from out of town and they weren’t all comfortable driving into the Loop.

Our goal was to find a space that gave us a Chicago feel, and the warehouse set-up was perfect. Even better, Gallery 1028 isn’t one of those industrial spaces that feels cold and dark – it was light enough when the sun was out that we had natural light streaming into the space, and the space felt warm and comfortable all night long. We also really wanted a blank slate to design our own space and this was the perfect place!

The staff here is also fantastic. They answered all of our e-mails in no time and were so great about helping us make our wedding everything we dreamed it could be. Finally, their partnership with Calihan Catering (the exclusive caterer) is top notch. It was the best wedding food ever, by far. It was truly exceptional - serious food allergies were taken care of and the presentation was outstanding.

If I ever need to host a large event again, I’d use Gallery 1028 in a heartbeat!
