    We had a fairytale wedding! The Murphy is an absolutely stunning venue that will leave all of your guests talking. We couldn't have asked for a better contact (Cathy)...she made everything so easy and was always available if we had any questions. if you are looking for a gorgeous and classic Chicago wedding, this is the space you have been dreaming of!

    This was a spectacular place for our reception. There was ample space for dancing, Our 12 piece band, and 170 guests! This historic building was a huge hit for the out of towners and Chicago locals alike. We recommend this venue highly.
