Mars Gallery




Mars Gallery isn’t just one of Chicago’s most venerable art galleries but also a completely uncommon event space for your wedding. By choosing to host your wedding at the Mars Gallery you will be giving your guests the chance to mingle amongst the work of some of Chicago’s top artists, and become immersed in one the city’s most creative neighborhoods for the night. This space is ideal for the couple that wants a less traditional venue with a modern feel. Housed in a converted brick warehouse this venue boasts beautiful bi-level art-filled loft with hardwood floors, wood-beamed ceilings and rose-colored brick walls. With 3,000 square feet of event space, the Gallery can be arranged to suite your reception and ceremony needs. Host a romantic ceremony on the upper level and then guests can move downstairs for mingling amongst the art during cocktail hour. You are able to choose the caterer of your choice, allowing you to create the wedding menu that matches your unique tastes, whether you want a traditional plated reception or a casual taco truck! Hung with twinkling lights the space will be truly festive and even more so when the dance floor heats up creating the perfect ambiance for a night filled with timeless moments.
