Loft on Lake

Chicago, IL

The Details

Loft on Lake is the quintessential Loft space, Chicago’s premier destination for any event, perfect for those seeking the ultimate alternative experience. Loft on Lake's interior boasts of raw architectural elements such as exposed brick and warm oak timber beams, 20ft. tall ceilings, and its most distinguished feature – a 65ft. skylight that is unique to all of Chicago! During the daytime the Grand Loft space is bathed in warm natural sunlight, and in the evening, the skylight reflects interior decor of the night’s event. If our walls could talk... They would speak of the countless magical events we've held since 2008. Loft on Lake is truly one of the most intimate Loft venues in Chicago. Our interior is a refined Loft space that can be transformed to the exact look and style you are dreaming of. The venue is turn-key, complete with finished wood trim, chandeliers, perimeter lighting and spot lights all on dimmers for your desired ambiance. The space can be configured in a multitude of ways offering endless possibilities for seated, cocktail or lounge furniture configurations.
