Loft on Lake is the original Chicago loft space, and continues to be a premier destination for any event! Located in the West Loop neighborhood, we’re nestled in part of the most bustling and growing neighborhoods in the city, and easily accessible from any part of the city. Ever since our start in 2008 when we captured the coveted “Best New Chicago Venue Award” from industry forecaster BizBash, we have set the trend and lead the way for independent event venues.

Whether you are coordinating a corporate retreat, panel presentation, dinner experience or private event, the space is a true creative canvas, ready to transform to meet any specifications. Loft on Lake is a natural beauty all on its own requiring nothing additional and imparting all the warmth and elegance to impress your guests. We also provide great flexibility for those who choose to embellish with additional decor touches, creating an even more unique event experience. And for those seeking a pop-up shop location, showroom or automobile release, our double-wide rear doors are street level and easily accessible for quick set-up and load out.

Our interior boasts of raw architectural elements, including clean peachy brick walls, exposed ductwork, warm oak timber ceilings at 20ft high, a bow truss roof and our most distinguishing feature – a 65ft skylight running the length of our main event space. During the daytime, the space is bathed in warm natural light, allowing all the outdoor vibes in a temperature controlled environment. We also include wonderful lighting features throughout the space to create the perfect ambiance as night falls.

For parking, there are two large parking garages located within a 2-min walk to our front door. With affordable drive up rates and SpotHero availability, guests will have no problem finding self-pay parking in the area. We’re in a ride-share friendly area, making Uber/Lyft the preferred transport method for most guests. We’re also a short walk from the Green & Pink line stops at Ashland or Morgan.
