Home / Wedding Venues / Chicago / Loft on Lake

Loft on Lake, located in the West Loop, is a quintessential Chicago-style loft with a bow truss wood beam ceiling and a massive 65-foot arched skylight. 

Loft on Lake also features exposed ductwork, brick walls, 20-foot ceiling heights and a beautiful copper-colored concrete floor. The open-concept floor plan can be set up in a variety of configurations for wedding ceremonies and receptions between 100 and 150 guests, with no posts or beams to obstruct anyone’s view.

In addition to the main loft space, there’s an 18’x24′ lounge space perfect for cocktail hour. You’ll also find a small private dressing room suite so that you can stay hidden from guests as they arrive.

Allowing outside food, alcohol (yay for Binny's return policy on unopened products!) and a broad list of included amenities make this one of the most cost-effective loft venues in Chicago. And they're pet-friendly. So if your ring bearer has four legs, and you’re looking for true loft space with fantastic value take a look at LoL.

This venue totally transforms depending on the time of day. During the day, the skylight bathes the space with warm natural light. At night it's perfect for a rocking dance party. And it's magic during blue hour - that dusk time shortly after sunset - when the light coming through the arched skylight balances with the interior.
Pro Tip: The Ashland Green Line L stop is a short walk down Lake Street and has a great skyline view. The light up there during golden hour is incredible. Plan to take 20 minutes during your cocktail hour for a few portraits on the platform. I promise the it'll be totally worth it!
