Celebrate your once-in-a-lifetime love in a timeless space.
Imagine a venue that melded the effortlessly cool vibe of a Chicago rooftop with the glamorous luxe feel of a ballroom. Sprinkle in some Art Deco architecture and fantastic skyline and lakefront views, and you've got The Penthouse Hyde Park.
The Penthouse Hyde Park is a venue unlike anything you'll find today because it was built 100 years ago. Located in the former Piccadilly Hotel & Theater building, a premier hangout for the Hyde Park elite of the 1920s, the ballroom was a grand hall on the top floor used for social engagements. When the hotel closed in the early sixties, so did the ballroom. That is, until June 2021, when The Penthouse Hyde Park opened its doors after a thoughtful restoration that gave the space a needed refresh while keeping its architectural significance and ornate details intact.
For couples looking to start the day in style, look no further. The two-story VIP Suite is in a category all its own. Each level features a lounge area, private bathroom, and tons of natural light while the downstairs boasts a full kitchen. Couples love the modern feel and spacious layout. Some wedding parties split the suite so both sides can get ready in the same space, creating a fun, community atmosphere as they prepare for such a big day.
The grand ballroom is a blank slate that fits any decor style. Bright white walls with original Art Deco features and gold finishes showcase elegant simplicity. The iconic black-and-white tile floors add a punch of pizazz that livens up any design. The real showstoppers are the 20' arched windows that frame the space. During the day, natural sunlight covers the room in a warm glow. As night draws in, the city skyline sparkles like diamonds. The ability to get captivating views inside and at this size is truly a rarity!
Something that sets The Penthouse Hyde Park apart is that our rooftop terrace is directly connected to our ballroom through a simple door. No stairs, no separation. This small detail helps your event feel cohesive. If a guest steps outside during the reception, they can still see into the ballroom and be part of the event, and vice versa.
And trust us, they'll be on the terrace! Sweeping skyline and lakefront views that will wow your guests. Many couples opt to host the ceremony on the terrace with the city as their backdrop. Guests love a sunset cocktail hour, watching the sky change colors with the Chicago skyline on full display. As twilight approaches, the city sparkles, and if you're lucky, you may see the Navy Pier or White Sox fireworks, too.
Hyde Park's bustling atmosphere will surely delight your guests! Here, you'll find a walkable and quaint downtown area with award-winning restaurants, shops, and hotels. With so much explore, your wedding becomes the star of an immersive experience for your guests.
The Penthouse Hyde Park books weddings up to 24 months in advance.
