“Art Deco Artistry”

 
 

 

One of Chicago’s most world renowned buildings, The Rookery, located in the center of Chicago’s downtown Financial District, is the perfect place for your Event!

With its architectural history, landmark status, and striking design, it combines state-of-the-art building systems and technology to ensure your event a success. Designed in 1888 by famous architectural partners Burnham and Root, the lobby was then redesigned in 1905 by the impressive Frank Lloyd Wright. The stunning two-story, skylit lobby, The Light Court, features winding staircases that sit below a skylight ceiling creating an ambiance of timeless beauty.

Weddings, Corporate Functions, Social and NFP’s are welcomed here and we ensure guests will fall in love with the space. The Rookery offers unique character and distinctive elegance for any event.

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
