Newly renovated and recently opened, this is a Chicago venue that is soon to be a favorite for Chicago weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, and corporate events. Once a beloved restaurant, Room 21 has officially been re-designed to be a perfect Chicago wedding venue for an intimate group or for a fun cocktail party. The space is not at all limiting because it's actually a swanky new additional space to the Chicago Illuminating Company, a Chicago venue separated by a perfect courtyard.
If your Chicago wedding is being planned at the Chicago Illuminating Company, your Chicago wedding planner is sure to have a few ideas to make your event even more memorable. What Big City Bride loves about this unique and raw Chicago venue is that it has so many spaces with so many options! This Big City Bride Chicago wedding used Room 21 as for their cocktail hour, and again for a late night lounge while dancing took place in the beautiful adjacent courtyard. Moving your guests from space to space for ceremony, cocktails, dinner, and dancing makes your event dynamic and memorable, especially when the space is this beautiful! Of course it takes a little extra planning to flawlessly execute a moving event but Big City Bride knows how to do it!
As you can see, there wasn't too much decor needed to make this space look fantastic. Filled with tables in a fun linen, each accented by the Chicago florist with a single orchid, were perfect and simple. This Chicago venue has enough craftsmanship and luxurious detailing that you don't need to add a lot of decor to your wedding budget. The leather tufted bar, massive mirror, and this gorgeous glass cabinet are part of the great design. Fill the cabinet with family pictures for a personal touch or votives for a romantic feel. Keep it simple and show off the space!
