On WeddingWire since 2013
Lacuna Events by LM is a one of a kind event venue located in Chicago. Established in 1897, this expansive 250,000 square-foot property was once the world’s largest macaroni factory. The space has since been expertly restored and offers couples an ideal location to celebrate their union in style.
This five-story venue offers a range of options for your upcoming wedding celebrations. Lacuna’s spacious Skydeck, with sweeping views of the Chicago skyline, is a picturesque backdrop to exchange your “I Do’s” in the warmer months.
The newly renovated Magik Street, located on the first floor, is the ideal space to gather for cocktails. The space includes a restaurant style show kitchen, custom bar and a landscaped deck with gas firepits.
Indoors, Lacuna offers two separate events spaces perfect for any celebration. The first floor Reverie Gallery, featuring a salvaged shipping container bar, hand crafted cedar bench seating and abundant eclectic charm, can accommodate up to 350 for a seated reception.
The fifth floor La Galleria offers private access to the SkyDeck and includes a custom bar area, dimmable bistro lighting and large picture windows with views of the Chicago skyline.
All catering needs are handled by Lacuna’s in house caterer, LM Catering & Events. The team at LM will work with you to create a custom menu using fresh, seasonal ingredients while accommodating any dietary restrictions.

Beautiful, unique venue with an incredible staff
Everyone we met from Lacuna was wonderful to work with. We primarily worked with Laura leading up to the wedding. She was incredibly helpful and very responsive to all of our questions (and we had a lot of questions). She has a great upbeat personality that made the little stressful moments throughout the process better.
We also had a great experience with the staff during the wedding day. The security guard was very personable and responsive. The waitstaff and bartenders were quick and professional and excellent at cleaning up quickly when our some of our klutzier guests kept spilling their drinks.
We were very impressed with the quality of our tasting. There was a good variety of options and everything tasted great. We received a number of compliments from our guests. The desserts were incredible and the family style sides were pretty popular. We also really liked the fact that Lacuna allows you to bring in your own alcohol from Binny’s and other suppliers, so we had more control over what wine and drink selection we could offer.
The venue is gorgeous. Our guests were blown away by the Chicago skyline for the ceremony. We were in the galleria for the reception and absolutely loved it. We fell in love with the artsy vibe and love that the venue has a good balance of unique visuals without being too overwhelming. Another huge selling point for us was the large dance floor. We had plenty of space for our 180 guests to dance all night long.
Amazing Chicago wedding venue
