Modern Event Space. Modern Meetings.

Just Off Michigan Avenue.

Chez is a contemporary loft space that can be easily transformed for the perfect corporate meeting or event. Original, white-painted brick walls and columns surround a contemporary glass staircase to provide a polished blank canvas ready for branded content.

Located steps from Michigan Ave, Chez is situated in one of the most ideal locations for your Chicago meeting. Your guests will be delighted by the convenient location, surrounded by 60+ hotels, tourist attractions, shopping and dining, public transportation and a constant stream of taxis. Chez places you within walking distance of The Mag Mile, the Lakefront, Water Tower Place, cultural institutions, the Chicago River, and other places of interest for out-of-town guests looking to quickly explore the city between meeting days.

The Chez team has over 10 years of event industry experience and will work with you on every detail of your meeting to ensure seamless execution on the day of the event. To make meeting planning a breeze, Chez has partnered with two of Chicago’s top event vendors, Blue Plate Catering and Sound Investment AV, to create a custom experience for each corporate meeting and general session at Chez.

Chez was once the home of the world famous Chez Paree nightclub, which hosted many of the world’s best entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nat King Cole.
