    Best value - Location, food, service, and awesome event planning team

    In the last few months, the Pinstripes team was wonderful to work with and helped accommodate our changes in plans with COVID. Their staff is fun, energetic, and experts in event planning. We hosted our rehearsal dinner at Pinstripes this year in the cocktail room down by the beautiful river and we cannot wait to host our larger reception next year in the ballroom. The location (right next to Navy Pier) is optimal and the outside/inside flexibility was greatly appreciated. During and after our rehearsal dinner, our guests thanked us several times for the delicious food at Pinstripes. The event planning team has been great to work with --through tastings, room setup, and again, re-planning our entire event with COVID. If you're looking for a great location, delicious food, a rustic setup on the river, and a great planning team, look no further! Wedding planning is already quite time consuming and a few Pinstripes below alleviated so many of our stresses throughout:

    Jessica Randel has been very responsive and proactive throughout her time with us--we had to make significant changes to our plans due to COVID and she helped bring our new vision (keeping everyone as safe as possible while maximizing our rehearsal dinner experience). She's helped us change our 150 person wedding to an intimate rehearsal dinner gathering outside, expertly advised us on various dinner services and setup, helped us safely manage new Chicago COVID rules (that changed week to week), and during the week of she kept us abreast of the weather and proactively guided us into a stress-free scenario. We cannot wait to work with her next year as we reschedule our big wedding reception in the downstairs ballroom.

    My husband and I also cannot thank Sherry Kenny, Jeremy Hopkins, and Diana Grodecki enough for the excellent expertise and service-driven customer experience. Sherry, at Oakbrook Pinstripes, provided us invaluable advice as we were navigating our COVID change in plans and managing through the changing circumstances in Chicago. Diana worked with us during the early phases, making our wedding tasting and early planning experience with my family a blast. At our rehearsal dinner, Jeremy ensured that every one of our guests received the top food and drink service, that his staff took precautionary measures, and that everyone had a phenomenal time. These efforts on your wedding weekend make a huge difference and we couldn鈥檛 have been more happy with our rehearsal dinner evening.

    We cant wait to finalize our big wedding reception plans with them in 2021 and return for another great experience.

    Great, Fun Venue!

    My fiance and I met at Pinstripes so there was no question it is where we wanted to get married. Jessica and the Pinstripes team do an AMAZING job through the entire wedding planning process and are right there every step of the way. The venue is not only fun but gorgeous and the food is delicious. The service was great and we've heard nothing but raves from our wedding guests on what a cool spot it was for a wedding. We held both the ceremony and reception and everything was perfect.

    Amazing Brunch Wedding Venue

    We chose Pinstripes for our brunch wedding for its location on the ogden slip, the bocce, and oh yeah! - the BRUNCH menu -
    They worked with us every step of the way and were able to provide everything we needed to make our mimosa-filled wedding the absolute best! Plus everyone truly enjoyed the bocce!
    Many thanks to Michela for getting us over the finish line :) the compliments from all our family and friends have NOT stopped.
