No, we do not have a dedicated parking lot, but we have ample street parking and work with V.I.P. Valet Services for valet.
Alcohol needs to be provided through your full service caterer or through a bartending company who hold a Chicago Liquor License. Our venue licensing does not allow shots or self-service options.
While we can customize integrated A/V for any event, our standard package comes with a dedicated technology director and use of our sound system, wifi, and two wireless microphones.
While there are no hotels within walking distance to The Arbory, the closest options are The Ace Hotel, Hyatt House, Wicker Park Inn, The Robbey, Nobu, and the Hoxton.
We make every effort to be able to host a one hour rehearsal, however the time and availability is not guaranteed due to our event schedule.
We welcome your dog, on leash, for the ceremony and any formal photos. We have to say goodbye to all pets as soon as food service begins.
We would be thrilled to send a list of our favorite event professionals who always exceed our expectations!
We are proud to say that our ground level venue is fully ADA accessible in all areas of the building.
No use of confetti is allowed within the building, as it easily stains floors. Sparklers are not allowed on sidewalks in Chicago.
Your Arbory Team is dedicated to making sure the venue is in perfect condition and your vendors have access to what they need. We could never replace the nuance and detail that an event coordinator or planner offers for each individual wedding and we strongly suggest adding one to your wedding team.
Yes, but they must be contained in a votive or hurricane. Open flames are not allowed anywhere within the building.
We cannot accept any deliveries ahead of your event. We are close to many FedEx or UPS pick-up stores should you need short term storage or package hold options.
