  • Visited this place with my Jewish friend. I miss you, Larry.
  • It is educational though a little bit sparse. It is a new build on a building that makes a good impression on Michigan avenue. The perfect wedding location if you are having a jewish wedding and like modern. They do the food on site. its Kosher.
  • This is one of Chicago's greatest wedding venues. I photographed a wedding here where the ceremony took place on the ground floor, cocktail hour on the mezzanine level, and a reception on the upper level overlooking the park. We were able to utilize the rooftop patio for photos of the bride and groom with the lake and park as a background. They had Wolfgang Puck kosher catering for the catering.
