Skyline Loft

“Raw Urban Elegance”

 
 

 

Housed in the former Spiegel Catalog warehouse, the Bridgeport Art Center’s “Skyline Loft” defines raw urban elegance. The architectural elements from this historic 1911 building include timber construction, exposed brick, soaring ceilings and an unparalleled view of the Chicago skyline.

Whether planning an intimate gathering for close friends and family or an extravagant gala, the open loft space on the top floor of the Bridgeport Art Center is a blank canvas that can be transformed for any occasion that demands an exceptional setting.

Caterers and Event Production (lighting, AV, furniture, outdoor rentals –  events with more than table top decor, i.e., floral, candles, props) are required to be selected from our Vendor List
