Best Venue in Chicago!
Stop looking for another venue- Salvage One is the best. From the moment we had our first tour we fell in love with the store and with the staff. They were such an ease to work with, accomodating us as we continued to evolve the form of our wedding during COVID, and were incredibly helpful. Our guests were blown away by how beautiful and unique the space was. We could not have had a better spot for our wedding!Sent on 06/18/2021

Loved every second!
Can’t say enough great things about Salvage One. Colleen, our event coordinator, was so easy to work with and was very responsive to calls and emails. We DIY’d a decent portion of our wedding decor and she was kind enough to let us store our materials in her office the day before - a great help!
The space itself is fantastic - which is a big plus if you don’t want to do a ton of flowers or table arrangements. We wanted to save some money there and that’s so doable at Salvage One, because the chandeliers, furniture and overall building aesthetic give you a built in atmosphere.
I loved being able to have our ceremony downstairs (with the actual church pews!) and then head upstairs for the reception. It was perfect for our Friday evening wedding. Everything all in the same place!
Our guests raved about all of the cool furniture and antiques throughout the space. I loved getting married in a relaxed, fun, unique venue. S.O. is the best!!Sent on 11/08/2019

Modern summer wedding
Salvage One was an amazing reception venue for our epic dinner party reception. We were looking for a space that didn’t feel too “wedding” but had an edge to it with outdoor space. Colleen who ran our wedding layout and managed the booking process was easy and seamless to work with. She is extremely responsive, sharp, smart and fun. Our friends and family had such a fun time drinking at the vintage bars, walking around and observing the cool antique items on the first floor and enjoying the expansive courtyard outside. I appreciated the different furniture we were able to use and the vintage pieces like chandeliers that are technically for sale, but are used to complement wedding décor, the sassy disco ball and more. Thank you guys! We now know why you have book so far in advance…you are awesome!Sent on 08/03/2019
