There are very few wedding venues in Chicago which make me think of our kick-ass readers more than Catalyst Ranch. If you’ve ever seen the versatile, colorful, and totally unique space in person, you’d see how much personality a wedding venue can add to your wedding. Situated in the trendy, industrial neighborhood of the West Loop, Catalyst Ranch is a breath of fresh air among plain venues.
Their combined 15,000 sq. of space is full of color, funky art, and cool toys creating a super fun and super eclectic space that exudes FUN. Plus, all that funky decor means way less work for you trying to make the space look complete.
If you’re having a Chicago wedding and want a space that will fit your guest list, your budget, and your personality, Catalyst Ranch needs to be on your list to tour. Let’s take a peek into the space to see what all the hype is about…
Wild, gorgeous spaces
With names like The Cha Cha, The Jitterbug, The Mambo, The Polka, and The Tango, you know we’re not dealing with stuffy banquet halls here. You can see a tour of the spaces here to get a feel. Five fully furnished event rooms are available for rent and each can be customized to your specific needs. And trust me, when guests walk into these spaces, they’re blown away by the fun factor.
There are alcoves for getting ready, secret mid-reception makeouts, and waiting for your big entrance, and huge spaces for dancing, ceremonies, and grabbing a cocktail with everyone you know.
Here’s a video tour of the spaces…
They’re offbeat-friendly in every sense
When you work with the team at Catalyst Ranch for their event space, you’ll immediately know that they’re chill with everything that makes you offbeat, including if you’re LGBTQ, have special requests, or are planning something really different.
Their all-inclusive rates include vintage tables, chairs, art, and bright rugs. Each room is artfully curated and each floor plan is designed to fit your vision. Plus, they only book one event per floor so that you don’t at all feel like you’re one in a crowd.
