Gallery 1028 is one of the most amazing and unique event spaces in Chicago. We knew right when we walked into Gallery 1028 that it was the perfect space for our wedding. We wanted a loft style space that was both romantic and intimate which best describes Gallery 1028. The original wood floors and exposed brick are absolutely beautiful while the windows make the space bright and welcoming. The staff is very accommodating and wonderful to work with. Kayla was extremely responsive to emails and very accommodating. We also received several compliments from our vendors on how friendly and responsive Kayla and the staff at Gallery 1028 were. Their partnership with Calihan Catering is superb. Calihan cater and Gallery 1028 work in sync together to make sure your wedding day is flawless, and all guest are happy. We had both our ceremony and reception at Gallery 1028. The staff did an outstanding job with flipping the ceremony space into a beautiful reception area. Our guest raved what an amazing and beautiful venue Gallery 1028 is. Over all experience was truly exceptional. Gallery 1028 and Calihan Catering did an outstanding job to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams.

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.

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!
