Opened in 2016, The Lakewood is a premier one-of-a-kind event space in the West Loop/West Lake District of Chicago. The space is clean and modern with contemporary design elements making it the perfect backdrop for any type of event. Since it’s opening, The Lakewood has held weddings, corporate functions, non-profit events, galas, birthday parties, workout classes and more. The space is truly versatile and one of a kind with 6,000 square feet and a free parking lot adjacent to the building. With an on-site, state of the art kitchen operated by Paramount Events, your menu will be anything but typical with our fresh, local and seasonal cuisine.


One of the best parts about The Lakewood is our new venue sales manager, Rebecca Hallberg!

Here, Rebecca discusses what she loves about The Lakewood.



The Lakewood, Chicago West Loop Venue


What makes The Lakewood different from other event spaces in Chicago?

The Lakewood has a clean, modern sophistication that you don’t find in many of the current venues. In contrast to so many of the rustic or raw industrial spaces, The Lakewood’s aesthetic takes a more classic minimalist approach, making it the perfect backdrop for any type of wedding or event.


What is your favorite thing about The Lakewood?

It has an abundance of beautiful natural light, a unique quality in an urban venue.


What has been one of your favorite events in The Lakewood?

The West Lake Market is one of my favorite events. The venue is alive with music, shoppers, artisan vendors, families, great food…all of the things I love about Sundays in the city!


What is the best part about your job?

It is the personal interaction with my clients that is the best part of my job. The relationships with my clients continue to inspire my dedication to customer service every day.
