    We had our wedding at the Bottom Lounge in May of 2023. We always thought getting married in the city would be above our budget, however the Bottom Lounge is an amazing West Loop venue that is affordably priced. The space is a gorgeous city loft space, and does not require much decor as the space is stunning. Natalie M. is the best part of the Bottom Lounge. She is an expert in weddings and wedding decor and will help you have the best day. Natalie managed our decor and did an incredible job - everything looked perfect. She also managed our timeline once we were in the space, vendors, our bridal party and a full staff who kept our night on time and stress free. Many of our guests told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and a lot of that had to do with the venue. The food was incredible, the bar was managed well (no lines) and Natalie works hard to make it an amazing day and keep it within your budget. We cannot recommend the Bottom Lounge enough!

    Anemone has partnered with Bottom Lounge many times and they've consistently been a pleasure to work with for both our shared clients and our staff. Natalie M goes above and beyond for Bottom Lounge clients and also checks in the vendors to make sure events run smoothly.
