Wintrust Arena is a stunning 10,000-seat space with a floor area of 18,000 square feet. Since opening in 2017, the Wintrust Arena has become a premier multi-purpose event center designed to be a flexible space that can host private concerts to general sessions and other special events.
The arena includes 479 club seats and 22 suites. Eight are 16-person suites, while the remaining 14 accommodate 12 people each. Suites feature catering services as well as private bars and restrooms. The arena is connected by pedestrian promenades and sky bridges to the rest of McCormick Place and the hotels.
In addition to hosting a year-round calendar of sporting events, concerts, family shows, and conventions, Wintrust Arena is the home court for both the DePaul University Blue Demons and the Chicago Sky WNBA team. The building is particularly suited for uses that include general sessions and convention closing events, such as concerts.
The Wintrust Arena was designed by renowned architects at Pelli Clarke Pelli and Moody Nolan, with a dramatic roof that swells upward over the venue’s seating — an homage to Chicago landmarks like the Auditorium Theatre and Union Station.
Wintrust Arena is located at 200 E. Cermak Road. Call (312) 791-7000 for information.
