Located in the up-and-coming Fulton Market area, Chicago’s quickly developing epicenter of innovation and technology, Morgan Manufacturing offers the space and inspiration to host any event. A building dating to before the Great Chicago Fire, there is some definite history within the walls. Near the 90/94 expressways, two blocks southwest of the blue line and two blocks north of the green line, we are easily accessible from just about anywhere. Downtown and River North are a stone’s throw across the river with ample hotels just a short cab ride away. Learn more.



Ace Hotel Chicago lives in a stoic, industrial concrete and glass building in the West Loop, once home to an Italian-American cheesemaking company and, before that, a pair of mysterious brothers. We’re walking distance to the Morgan Lake L Station and some of the best food in the city. You can throw a coin and hit Google (we don’t recommend it; they’ve got cameras) and what once was Oprah Winfrey’s HQ. Learn more.
