    Lovely Neighborhood Venue in the City

    The Joinery was the perfect wedding venue for us. Shay was extremely helpful and communicative throughout, answering any questions we had. The detailed floorplan really helped us envision our big day, and the value you get is incredible! We didn't have to worry about renting chairs, tables, or props - the owners provide it all (they actually handmake many of their pieces in-house, from easels to tables to the donut wall!), and they are of exceptional quality. The outdoor patio is great for a cocktail hour with heat lamps, and the main area has a lovely atrium to host your ceremony and dance floor. The two bars indoors offer a great place for guests to talk and get drinks. You even get a room to get ready in and stay in overnight (or just store your stuff to pick up the next day).

    The recommended vendor list has a plethora of options and helped us pick many of the folks we contracted for our big day - not a single one of them disappointed. The Joinery is one of the best venues the city of Chicago has to offer.

    Industrial & romantic

    We were so thrilled with our decision to have our wedding at The Joinery. Everything looked perfect, completely in line with our vision – it was industrial and edgy yet romantic and beautiful. We used the getting ready space and the apartment upstairs which was very convenient. Shay was such a pleasure to work with, responsive, flexible and sensitive to our stresses planning a wedding during COVID times. We did not have a day-of coordinator but Shay made sure everything ran smoothly and went according to plan!
    Highly recommend and so many thanks to the team at The Joinery.

    Beautiful and Unique

    We were very lucky and had heard about this venue right when they started putting on events. It's a lovely spot right in the middle of Logan Square in a quiet neighborhood, right off the blue line. The Joinery gave us the perfect combination of city vibes that weren't located right downtown. From the very beginning, Katherine one of the owners was very responsive and met us to go through the space. And the space is wonderful, beautifully renovated. You can tell that the owners put a lot of thought and care into their renovation. The space is absolutely beautiful, open and airy. The skylight illuminates the entire space and is gorgeous. They still use their workshop area and it's lighted up for events. My husband and I immediately fell in love and realized how different it felt than all the other spaces we visited. The Safe House speakeasy on the second level was also incredibly unique, and we loved the outdoor space as well that we planned on using for cocktail hour. The additional AirBnB that comes included with the space also was a major perk, we used it to house gifts during the wedding and had our parents stay there for the night. The Joinery also provides their own decorations that you can use for your event including window panes, signs etc.

    During the year leading up to the wedding, Brittney joined the staff as a manager and she was wonderful to work with. Always responsive, always available to give us another look at the space, and always answering our questions and concerns. Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful and Brittney did a wonderful job at making me feel well looked after and taken care. of She always made me feel comfortable contacting her with any questions or concerns that I may have. The staff at The Joinery were all in all incredible during the entire process. Everyone from the owners to the managers were a joy to work with, even dealing with last minute walk-throughs for mother-in-laws to see the space!

    The day of, Billy was our point of contact and he was absolutely wonderful! Even though I had never met him before, he immediately put us at ease and constantly checked on me throughout the evening, making sure that I had a drink in hand, and making sure that I had some of the appetizers. He did a great job at assisting in coordinating everything, handing out keys, unlocking doors, and answering questions. I was seriously so impressed with Billy and so thankful for his aide during the big day.

    We received so many compliments on how absolutely beautiful and unique the space is. How they had never seen a wedding venue quite like that before and we truly believe that as well! I would highly recommend the Joinery to anyone and everyone who is interested in having a beautiful, different space in the city. A few words of advice though because the space is in the middle of a neighborhood, there are noise restrictions for music and the patio and outside area does close at a specific time. However we had no issues with our guests. Parking was ample! Do not be stressed about street parking (a big concern for some of the suburb guests), there were plenty of spots open. I would highly recommend the Joinery to anyone without any reservation! You will absolutely become obsessed!
