About The Haight

Conveniently located at the heart of Elgin, The Haight is a charming wedding venue in Illinois. Respectfully renovated from its warehouse roots, this expansive event space combines historicity with a hip, elegant atmosphere. The Haight is ideal for couples who wish for a stylish and distinct venue supported by dedicated staff, all within reach of downtown Chicago.

Facilities and Capacity

At the heart of downtown Elgin, a treasure trove of late 19th-century architecture, The Haight pays tribute to its environs whilst keeping one eye on the future. A combination of exposed brownstone walls, rugged timber framework, and polished hardwood floors welcomes guests upon arrival. With space for a sizeable occasion, guests can relax and enjoy their evening under the warm golden glow of its elegant light fixtures. Upstairs provides an equally spectacular setting in the form of a recently constructed roof-top deck. Built with materials complementary to its downstairs sibling, this space maintains the building’s harmony whilst adding a new dimension. Its large covering ensures a guest list of up to 300 well-wishers can enjoy the fresh air and views of Elgin in comfort. For more intimate gathering The Haight offers the use of its private Vintage Suite, a tastefully appointed room suited to parties of up to 32 loved ones. The venue can be elegantly decorated throughout, with staff providing custom-built furniture and string lighting for your event. The property’s sound system is state-of-the-art and runs through the entire building uniting those inside and on the deck. There is ample parking available on-site, and the premises is wheelchair accessible.

Services Offered

The Haight’s staff consists of veteran events specialists, who are here to help with all the small and large details which make up a wedding. There is a dedicated planning team available to couples that will help with floor plan creation and organizing a timeline for the day. The staff is happy to assist in the setup and cleanup of your event.

    The most incredible team and venue! Highly recommend!

    It's hard to put into words how incredible Lauren and The Haight team were to work with. The venue is gorgeous and speaks for itself but they were what made our wedding the best it could be. We couldn't have imagined a better group of people to help us in our wedding planning process or a better venue to host our dream wedding. The entire team was kind, responsive, helpful, flexible and truly made us feel so special. They went above and beyond to make our day go smoothly. We never had to worry about a single thing. With The Haight, you don't just get a venue, you get a team of coordinators working to make your day as wonderful as possible. We would recommend them to anyone looking for their dream wedding venue.

    Gorgeous Venue Amazing Team

    The Haight is an absolutely gorgeous venue in Downtown Elgin. It's walkable to the river and several cute restaurants/photo spots. Even without a single decoration, it has so much character and multiple spaces to host your celebration including a new rooftop bar, downstairs cocktail area, upstairs ceremony/reception space, and beautiful bridal room.

    Beyond the venue itself, the staff at The Haight is incredible! They are responsive and organized throughout the entire process and offer plenty of suggestions and assistance leading up to your big day. They will coordinate final details with vendors, help with timeline, coordinate seating arrangements, and even organize/set up decor. Both of my siblings were married in the past few years and The Haight was BY FAR the easiest and most helpful team to work with. Huge thank you to Brett, our day of coordinator, for making our day absolutely perfect!

    I highly recommend leveraging their preferred/suggested vendors. Most are at the venue weekly and it makes the process super streamlined and stress free! I used Cuisine America for catering and Sounds Abound for my DJ and didn’t have to worry about a thing.

    If you can find a date, pick The Haight! You won't be disappointed
