The Rookery Building, an historic landmark in the heart of Chicago's financial district, boasts the most famous wrought iron staircase in the city and a glass ceiling lobby redesigned by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Built in 1888, The Rookery Building was one of the first "skyscrapers" constructed in Chicago. It was recognized as a National Historic Landmark in 1975. The central Light Court lobby transports you back in time with a grand elegance and has remained beautifully maintained. Ornate lighting and iron work, complimented by white marble, create a unique ambience. During the daytime natural sunlight fills the space.
The space has a seated reception capacity of 170 guests when setup to accommodate a band or DJ. Couples can opt to cover the storefront and office windows with drape.
The sweeping wrought iron Oriel staircase spirals down from the 12th floor to the 2nd floor, where it splits perfectly onto the balcony that overlooks the lobby. It's stunning by any measurement. But from a photographer's perspective, it's a masterpiece.
