A Modern Perspective of a Historic Chicago

Located on 21st street in the South Loop, the landmark Mae District of Chicago is a profoundly historical yet contemporary 10,000 square foot space. The original exposed brick and steel beams of Mae District has set a standard by which all other event spaces are judged.

Mae District is a time traveler. Imprinted in the steel beams and brick walls is a storied past echoing tales of Chicago. Composed of secrets of many kinds, doors open to reveal festive events, charming spaces and tree-lined terraces. A cultural landmark, inspired by Mae herself, speaks to events filled with pleasure and leisure, fleeting moments and pure bliss — a historical story with new beginnings.

The unmistakably novel environment is just blocks away from the vast Lake Michigan and overlooking the vibrant beloved city. Steps from the McCormick Center, this two story space is nestled within the redstone brick buildings offering a rare vantage point of the city with an exceptional history. It is the perfect getaway on the doorstep of Chicago.
