Chez Chicago




Situated two blocks from Michigan Avenue and Chicago’s lakefront, Chez Chicago is in close proximity to the Loop, Millennium Park, and Museum Campus. A contemporary loft with a rich history, Chez Chicago was once the home of the famous Chez Paree nightclub, which occupied the building from the 1930s through the 1950s. The club hosted many of the world’s best entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nat King Cole. Statuesque columns activate the seventeen-foot-tall interior, framing an aisle for your grand entrance. Brilliant white brick walls, white drapery and polished concrete floors create an elegant loft aesthetic for your nuptials. After your guests witness your vows, the celebration begins in the space, filled with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows. An architectural glass staircase leads to a mezzanine overlooking the main floor, providing a beautiful setting for wedding photography. Your wedding celebration becomes a party to go down in history at Chez Chicago!
