Great people to work with and a beautiful ballroom!

Kristin was my contact at this venue and was very responsive throughout our communications! From scheduling a tour of the venue as soon as possible to answering my questions on a daily basis, Kristin has been very proactive and expressed care for my wedding as much as me! In my experience, choosing the right venue was important but choosing the right people to work was very important as well. The TTT ballroom is also gorgeous with a lot of natural light flowing through!

Incredible venue

We had a perfect wedding at the Warwick Allerton on March 31, 2023. The Director of Sales and Marketing (Michael) and the Warwick Wedding Specialist (Kristin) were incredible and were so involved with planning to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams. The staff is amazing! Everything went as scheduled, above and beyond our expectations. Our guests are still raving over the food and the amazing city views that the ballroom has to offer!

Magical evening in iconic space

We selected to have our wedding and reception at the Warwick Allerton after attending a reception there a couple years ago. Since that wedding, they redesigned the Tip Top Tap Ballroom, giving it a lovely, modern, brightening makeover, and the space was beautiful. Stunning views, and overall a tremendous value for the space, location, and food and beverage options and flexibility. For the value, it's a great downtown Chicago location for a wedding best suited for approx 120 guests. They also provide a day-of onsite manager which is a nice value add if you don't plan to hire a planner. Everyone complimented the space, and said the food was delicious, and served hot, big plus! Highly recommend.
