The Drake Hotel, located in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast, is a 1920 landmark building with multiple event spaces for luxury Chicago weddings.
The Drake Hotel is one of Chicago's most iconic wedding venues. Overlooking Oak Street Beach where the Magnificent Mile begins, the space is perfect for couples planning large-scale productions with hundreds of guests or smaller ceremonies with close friends and family.
The Gold Coast Room features ornate columns, sparkling chandeliers and views of Lake Michigan. The largest of the spaces at The Drake, it can accommodate nearly 500 guests for ceremonies and seated dinners, while remaining comfortable for smaller groups as well.
The Grand Ballroom is outfitted for a live band with dance floor built to literally put a spring in your step. The ballroom can seat more than 350 for ceremonies and receptions. Couples can also choose the Camellia Room (the hotel's original dining room) or the French Room. The French Room is located next to the Gold Coast Ballroom, making it a great cocktail hour spot.
