How big is Firehouse Chicago? In what space will my event be held.
Firehouse Chicago is composed of three separate spaces that work together to create an exceptional venue.
Our main room is the former engine room that has been transformed into a crisp, clean and detailed space with unique decor such as our wrought iron staircase and our wood farmhouse doors. The square footage of the main space is 22.5’ x 60’.
The old firehouse kitchen, which used to be the horse stable, has been updated and transformed into a sleek, modern and functional space for our catering staff. It is equipped with a 6 burner Viking stove, double sink, full fridge and ample prep surface. The space, however, is large and versatile enough to be used for an additional meeting space for brainstorming sessions or coffee breaks. The square footage of the kitchen space is 22.5’ x 20’
Our side garden is expertly maintained and furnished to give your event an outdoorsy flair. It can be used in a multitude of ways such as team building games, outdoor luncheons or as a relaxing break room. In addition to the side garden there is one balcony that overlooks the garden that can be set up with couches and tables for breaks and meeting spaces. The square footage of the side garden is 14’ x 80’
