Lacuna is a multi purpose cultural arts center, events venue and shared work space. Lacuna Events by LM provides full service catering and on-site event management services to Lacuna. The ideal venue for weddings, showers, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties & anniversaries, Lacuna is ideally situated in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood.
Built in 1897 as what once was the world’s largest macaroni factory, the 5 story, 250,000 sq. ft. spaced maintains much of the original charm. The building has been carefully restored using as much of the original building materials as possible. Studios, galleries and event spaces are all updated using reclaimed or repurposed materials as well. Also, artwork from talented Chicago artists can be found all over the building. Those booking the space for private events are welcome to use much of this artwork during their events with advance notice. All of these factors create a truly unique venue for both work and play.

Best day, and venue, ever!!!
When our daughter was looking for venues for her recent wedding, she immediately fell in love with Lacuna Lofts. Not only is the building beautiful with an interesting history, an over 100 year old Macaroni Factory, but she fell in love with the skydeck and had to have a summer wedding. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate on the big day, but Georgie and the staff were so calm, reassuring us that our back up plan of having the ceremony and reception inside would be just as memorable. The rain ended and our guests were able to take in the breathtaking view of the Chicago skyline after dinner. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the wedding was, and the food was the best they’ve had at a wedding, and the vegetarian choice was unlike others they’ve had before. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a wedding in and interested venue, other than the typical country club or ballroom, that are readily available. Thanks again to Georgie and her staff for making this day one that we will never forget!Sent on 06/20/2019

My husband and I got married this summer at Lacuna Lofts and could not have picked a more perfect venue! We were looking for a unique, lofted space that was large and open, provided catering, and had outdoor accommodations. Lacuna met all of our expectations and more!Sent on 08/13/2018
We were lucky enough to have Mary as our venue and catering coordinator throughout the entire wedding planning process. Mary answered all of our questions along the way and her relaxed and kind demeanor made the planning fun and enjoyable. We truly felt that she was our partner in planning, as we worked together to coordinate the wedding of our dreams.
A huge perk was that they also have their own caterer, LM Catering & Events, so we didn’t have to worry about coordinating our own food, tables/chairs, linens, etc. The food provided by LM Catering was amazing, along with the table settings, dessert stands, and beautiful details they provided.
On our actual wedding day, we were blown away with how smoothly EVERYTHING went! We had to make some last-minute changes due to the weather, but it was carried out without a hitch. We had our ceremony in the blank canvas gallery, cocktail hour on the rooftop deck, and reception in the reverie gallery. Each and every space was beyond gorgeous. We got compliments all night long from our guests with how awesome the venue was, and they continue to talk about it even after the wedding. We highly recommend Lacuna Lofts to anyone looking to plan an unforgettable wedding day!

We hosted our Wedding Ceremony and Reception at Lacuna this past weekend and it was better than we could ever imagine! We had our ceremony on the rooftop and it was the perfect day! The skyline was stunning and everything was beautiful. The reception was in the Reverie Gallery downstairs and the room looked amazing! Everything about Lacuna is so unique and our guests were raving about every detail!Sent on 06/27/2018
We worked with the beyond brilliant Mary Kehoe. She was amazing! She truly cared about our event and was on top of every detail and extremely responsive! She is a love of a person and so so wonderful to work with!
They allowed us to do our rehearsal the Friday before and drop off our items to be stored in the office which was very convenient. They also let us store it there after the wedding and pick it up this week which helped a ton. Mary even called our liquor supplier and took care of pick up!
Our big day was perfect! The service was outstanding as well! We had one server just for myself and the groom which was amazing. We never had to ask for anything, it was just always there! The food was also superb! Our guests wouldn't stop talking about it and said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding!
If you're looking for a truly unique and spectacular venue with amazing staff, stop your search now! Choosing Lacuna was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and we'll be floating on a cloud from the experience for the rest of our lives!
