House of Blues Chicago




Situated in central River North only a single block away from Michigan Avenue, the Chicago House of Blues offers a singularly cool wedding venue right in the heart of the Windy City! Channeling the dark yet soulful vibes of New Orleans, this unique restaurant and performance space provides one of the most unique settings in the city for your big day. Imagine saying your “I do’s” in the grand music hall, sharing your first kiss as spouses on an immense red-curtain stage as your friends and loved ones look on from below. Host cocktail hour on the theater’s mezzanine, where you and your guests can sip on delectable libations as you enjoy the space’s stunning architecture, from the towering ceilings to the gold detailing on every railing. Descend the stairs into the main theater area to enjoy dining and dancing the night away amid the moody lighting of the Music Hall. If you’d prefer a more intimate atmosphere for your celebration, take advantage of one of the venue’s atmospheric dining rooms, which boast unique decor reminiscent of an 19th century Southern Lounge.
