cool stairs which were lots of fun for pictures! Chez is such a great space for creating your vision; it can really morph into whatever you want it to be with some decorations and the appropriate lighting. Plus, because Chez is a BYOB venue, we were able to work with Prestige Liquors to save a TON on alcohol, compared to all-in-one venues. There was some issue apparently with one of the sinks in the bathrooms during the evening, but we were warned about it and there were additional bathrooms available within the venue for those who could do stairs. We worked extensively with Lauren Smith at Chez, and she was an absolute delight to work with. She was responsive via email and text, and sensitive to our unique needs in terms of loading in and out decorations, given that we were having a wedding in Chicago while living out of state. She even Skyped with us so we could see the venue since we were unable to come in in person initially. In general, the staff at Chez was great and we would highly recommend Chez as your wedding reception venue!
