Since its official debut in November 2019, The Old Post Office has welcomed couples from all over the country to celebrate their special day. After its first few seasons, the space has solidified its standing amongst the city’s most unique wedding venues.
With just over 100 couples having said “I Do” right in this very spot, the Historic Lobby continues to serve as the venue’s signature space, captivating guests with its timeless elegance. With its floor-to-ceiling marble, and natural lighting, the lobby sets the stage as the perfect space to begin the new chapter of any love story. The lobby can seat up to 700 guests with a dance floor, and host up to 1,400 guests for a cocktail-style reception.
To compliment the Historic Lobby, we have the Telegram Lounge, Library, and Vault on the second floor. The Telegram Lounge amplifies any reception with its wrap-around bar, Bocce lane, pool tables, and East-facing views of the Chicago River. The second-floor spaces are filled with modern furniture, with nods to the Historic Lobby through large marble pieces and gold fixtures. The Library and Vault serve as the perfect wedding party suite additions.
At the top of The Old Post Office, sits the Meadow and Penthouse. The Meadow is the perfect space to entertain your guests outside; the 3.5-acres of lush garden creates an oasis above the busy city. The partially-covered North Meadow features a built-in bar, heat lamps, and sleek furniture. This space can accommodate up to 250 guests for a one-of-a-kind cocktail reception.
Steps away from the Meadow, with original brick, exposed ceilings, and modern fixtures, the Penthouse is the perfect loft-like backdrop for events. This dynamic duo creates a seamless indoor/outdoor event experience. The Penthouse can accommodate up to 300 guests for a cocktail reception, and 150 guests for a seated event with a nice sized dance floor.
