The art-filled spaces of 21c Chicago are the perfect place to entertain and inspire.

Marriage is one of life’s most extraordinary events – plan yours with a rehearsal dinner, wedding, or reception that is sure to make a lasting impression! Leave the boring reception hall behind – 21c Chicago offers a truly unforgettable venue for your event. 21c brings over 10,000 square feet of art-filled exhibition and event space to downtown Chicago. Featuring a wide range of spaces, many with cutting-edge audiovisual technology, the property can accommodate a variety of events ranging from an intimate cocktail gathering to board retreats, executive meetings, weddings, and more.


Contemporary art is integrated throughout the entire property, creating a unique experience at every turn. The second level features the Main Gallery, additional gallery, and meeting spaces. Lure Fishbar is a seafood restaurant offering the freshest fish selections from around the world, a complete raw bar with rotating oyster selection, and a world-class sushi program in addition to premium cuts of meat, steaks, and signature sides. Guests are welcomed into the restaurant via both Rush and Ontario Street.


At 21c, we want to help you create a meeting or event as unique as your surroundings. Our team will help you build a completely customized package to satisfy your needs. 21c’s events team will take care of it all: linens, tables, chairs, set up, and tear down. Out-of-town guests can enjoy 21c’s luxurious rooms and suites, while the special couple can treat themselves to the exclusive 21c suite. And for the foodies in your life, Lure Fishbar’s culinary team will prepare a catering menu specifically tailored to your needs and wants. Our restaurant and bar offer a variety of bar packages and a carefully selected wine and spirits collection, highlighted by an impressive selection of bourbons, wines, and other liquors. Once you’ve got the basics down, choose from our custom extras to wow your guests.
