Host all of your wedding weekend events here
From the first sip of bubbly at your Welcome Cocktails to the last bite of pastry at your Farewell Brunch, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Chicago is the perfect headquarters for a weekend full of wedding activities. Our Downtown Loop location overlooking the Chicago River and a collection of unique (and lovely) venues and high-end amenities are just the icing on the cake.
During their downtime, your loved ones can stroll through Millennium Park, visit the Art Institute of Chicago or the American Writers Museum, or relax with a good book on one of our beloved bay window seats overlooking the Chicago River. And for you, we offer beautiful backdrops for photos, spaces filled with natural light for getting ready, and an entire team dedicated to making this the weekend of your dreams.
Host your rehearsal dinner at Fisk & Co., a Belgian bistro meets modern American pub, for a mouthwatering meal. Executive chef Ashlee Aubin and her expert culinary team will work with you on a custom-designed menu to ensure your final dinner before wedding bells ring is as inspired as your love story.
There’s so much to think about on the big day that it’s easy for small details to fall by the wayside — like making sure you’re nourished for the walk down the aisle (we want you to feel lightheaded in love, not from hunger!). Let us handle fueling the wedding party with a selection of morning-of bites such as bagels, yogurt, fresh fruit, mimosas, and more.
Whether your ceremony will be an intimate affair with just your nearest and dearest or a bigger soiree, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Chicago has a space to suit your nuptials. The Paris Ballroom is just the spot for weddings with an air of formality, while the Athens Room—with stunning views of the Chicago skyline—is well suited for smaller events. Whatever type of wedding dominates your Pinterest board, our experienced planners will make sure you get hitched without a hitch.
Let the dinner, drinks, and dancing begin! Your debut as a married couple will be divine with a reception to remember. Catering from Fisk & Co. includes options like passed hors d’oeuvres of mini grilled cheesed sandwiches and coconut curry shooters, stations with shucked oysters and barbecue, and entrees of spice-glazed duck confit and wild mushroom risotto. If you want to keep the celebration going, we have late-night snacking options for the after-party.
Whoever said parting is such sweet sorrow has clearly never attended a farewell brunch. Sweet? Absolutely, and maybe a little savory too. But sorrow? Not when there are freshly baked pastries, avocado toast, smoked salmon, and cinnamon sugar beignets to be had. Our private dining spaces in Fisk & Co. set the scene for this fond farewell as you send your guests off with full bellies and great memories of a magical wedding weekend.
