Whether you’re event planning on a budget or looking for a fully customizable experience, raw spaces are the way to go. You can bring in your own catering, pay by the hour, and decorate the space as you see fit to truly make it your own. Here’s a few of our favorite afforable raw spaces in Chicago for you to consider!
Workshop Chicago consists of two loft spaces that are 3,000 and 1,350 sq ft respectively. With a private conference room, wifi, whiteboard and A/V amenities, Workshop Chicago is a great option for corporate offsite events. Or if you’re looking to host a social event, Workshop Chicago lets you bring your own alcohol and food and has a Bluetooth sound system to get the party started with some tunes.
The Showroom on Hubbard is the showroom for Reclaimed Table, a custom, eco-friendly furniture company, but doubles as a rentable event space! With a cozy and elegant vibe, this space is very versatile and can share proposed floor plans for presentations, off-site meetings, sit-down dinners, and cocktail parties. Plus a full sized bar makes this spot irresistible!
B25 is one of a kind because of it’s proximity to Central River North and the Downtown District. Situated on Hubbard Street, B25 combines exposed brick and timber beams to give the event space an industrial chic vibe. The space can accommodate 125 guests for a cocktail reception or 75 guests for a seated event.
Let contemporary art be the creative backdrop for your next event. This large gallery showroom can fit up to 150 guests and is located in the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood. Plus, the gallery features moveable walls to create distinctive areas or open up the space to cater to your event’s feel.
