Chicago Illuminating Company

The Chicago Illuminating Company is housed inside of a two-story former power plant/warehouse that dates back to the 1900s. It is also conveniently located near the Convention Center – McCormick Place. The renovated, modern architectural space is 10,000 square feet that blends with an urbane loft aesthetic for a sophisticated, state-of-the-art feel. Elegant tile mosaic detailing, hardwood floors, and original steel beams come together to create this venue’s look. The ceiling height ranges from 15 to 50 feet, creating an open and spacious space. Built-in marble bars are used for bars and for chefs’ presentations. Tall arched windows stand opposite the mezzanine balcony with massive mirrors placed against the walls. This beautifully designed venue space is the perfect setting for your events no matter how big or small they are. The Chicago Illuminating Company has the capacity for up to 250-seated dinners and up to 600 for cocktail receptions.
