One of the ways the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events funds its free public events is by renting some of its unique venues for private events. Offering a wide variety of rooms and spaces suitable for events ranging from grand galas to simple meetings, the Chicago Cultural Center and Millennium Park are beautiful and gracious locations for private events.


Chicago Cultural Center

Chicago Cultural CenterThe Chicago Cultural Center, located at Michigan Avenue and Washington Street, has large, dazzling rooms –- including Preston Bradley Hall, home of the world’s largest Tiffany glass dome –- appropriate for formal occasions such as weddings, cocktail receptions, seated dinners, and events for 800 people, and smaller rooms for meetings and conferences. The landmark building has been used for film shoots, vendor fairs, performances and ceremonies.
