Venue Spotlight: The Showroom on Hubbard

Hi Everyone!!!

As you know, we love giving shout outs to our favorite Chicago venues; and there is a new venue in town, The Showroom on Hubbard! Now, The Showroom on Hubbard is not your traditional venue. Initially opening and still operating as a showroom for ‘Reclaimed Table’ – a premier provider of custom and sustainable furniture, this beautiful and contemporary space is rich with reclaimed wooden tables and paneling and is eco-friendly! Below we want to share with you, some of our favorite standouts and need-to-know info this favorite new spot of ours!

The Showroom on Hubbard can accommodate up to seventy guests for a formal dinner and up to one hundred and twenty guests for a cocktail event. This venue is located in a historic building which dates back to the 1860’s in Chicago’s dynamic River West neighborhood. The building was originally a children’s hospital and is notably one of the few buildings to survive the Chicago Fire!

One of our favorite inclusions of the space is the use of their stunning tables, chairs, full sized bar and on street parking! These are rare finds! 

Although the space has mainly catered to corporate parties, baby & bridal showers and dinner parties, we want to bring it some wedding LOVE! This spring we will be partnering with the lovely ladies from The Showroom on Hubbard, along with some of our favorite vendors to bring you wedding inspiration overload! Keep your eyes out for more blogs leading up to our shoot!

If you are already intrigued and want to check out the space as a possible location for your intimate wedding (or event), you must visit their website. Also be sure to stay up to date with them on FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest

Happy Planning, 

The Storybook Team
