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

Lacuna Lofts is the best wedding venue in Chicago
We had our wedding reception at Lacuna Lofts July 27, 2019, and absolutely loved every minute of it. The venue itself is awesome–the views of the Chicago skyline from the rooftop deck are unbeatable, and the gallery space is artsy, eclectic, and very fun. It fit the two of us perfectly, and I loved the flexibility Lacuna provided for us to add whatever touches we wanted to make the space feel that much more our own. We’ve gotten endless compliments from our guests on everything from the space itself, to the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, to the food (we did the Pilsen and Ballpark stations, and they were a huge hit!!)Sent on 08/04/2019
We worked with Mary Kehoe from LM Catering to plan our celebration, and she is fantastic. She is relaxed, patient, responsive, and very thorough. She always made herself available to answer any questions I had throughout the process, and went out of her way to take care of small details, especially day-of, so that I didn’t have to worry about anything. We highly, highly recommend Lacuna Lofts to anyone looking for a wedding venue in the city of Chicago. Thank you, Mary!!

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!
