About

On WeddingWire since 2022

Wildman BT is an urban-industrial wedding venue in Chicago, Illinois. Initially built in 1914, the building is a lovingly restored destination with a rich historical heritage. The property owners reimagined the space in 2020, recapturing much of its old-world charm while instilling a contemporary aesthetic too. The venue is conveniently located and easily accessible from the Downtown Chicago areas. At your event, you can look forward to welcoming your nearest and dearest into a hip space where all nuptial dreams are possible.

Facilities and Capacity

Wildman BT appears a visually intriguing inner-city destination for wedding celebrations from its red brick-faced exterior. Several entrance points ensure guests can make their way inside effortlessly and on time for the festivities. Upon entering the main room, a blank canvas-style area awaits with 12,000 square feet of flexible space at your disposal. Functional concrete flooring, exposed ceilings, and ample natural lighting are just a few of the venue’s defining features. Couples seeking an extravagant celebration will delight in hosting 300 guests for a ceremony, 400 guests for a seated meal, and 500 loved ones for a cocktail reception. Wildman BT has studio-quality lighting installed to ensure nighttime functions are just as illuminating.

11/10 would recommend

Absolutely loved working with the Wildman team. There were no hidden costs everything was discussed up front. The space was amazing, we got so many compliments on it! Did both the ceremony and reception for around 175 people and there was plenty of space and everything flowed easily. They worked so well with all of vendors and thought through everything

Industrial loft meets glam space for modern party wedding

The team at Wildman was so kind and accommodating for us as we planned our wedding day. We wanted our wedding to feel like a big party, and Wildman’s flexible space worked perfectly for transitioning from our ceremony into our reception. The upstairs bridal suite was perfect for us to relax before the ceremony and have a moment to regroup afterward before joining our guests, and also to change into a party dress after dinner! Our guests loved the gorgeous lounge furniture and bathrooms. We’re so happy we chose Wildman for our wedding venue! Thank you so much for everything, Michelle and Valentina!

The BEST Chicago Wedding Venue!

WildmanBT was an absolute DREAM wedding venue for our big day in February! Not only is the space stunning, but Michelle, Valentina and the entire WildmanBT team were absolutely incredible to work with from start to finish. They worked seamlessly with us as we sorted through logistics of the day, worked with all of our vendors, provided us great recommendations & accommodated everyones needs. They even so kindly hosted us for multiple venue walk throughs with our vendor teams, our families and allowed us to utilize the space for our rehearsal walk through the evening before our wedding. The room was set up perfectly to accommodate our 200 guests and looked even more beautiful on our big day than I had pictured it in my head! The space is industrial, elegant, timeless and elevated - I cannot recommend hosting your wedding or any event at WildmanBT anymore - I wish that we could do it all over again!!
