With over 16,000 square feet of raw brick walls and vaulted wood ceilings, Rockwell on the River is an urban-rustic aesthete’s dream. The venue only opened in 2018, but its pastoral Chicago River views and dramatic structural design has made The Rockwell an instant wedding hotspot. Skylights allow for hours of natural sunlight to filter into the space from the ceiling and spotlights on the overhead beams create a special ambiance after dark. The floor-to-ceiling windows make a perfectly romantic backdrop for a wedding ceremony or reception dinner. The expansive, open space is prime dance floor material, too. A common courtyard walkway of hand-laid Italian brick connected the private event space to a brewery (Rockwell Taproom), a distillery and a coffeehouse (featuring Metropolis Coffee). One of our favorite amenities (as caterers) is the 1,300 square foot catering kitchen—an absolute dream for our beyond-talented onsite chefs. In the warmer months, the outdoor deck and frontage overlooking the North branch of the river are open to guests.
