Built in 1913 and constructed in 1920, Theater on the Lake is one of Chicago’s most beloved Prairie-style locations. It’s located at Fullerton Avenue and Lake Shore Drive, seated right at the edge of the Lake and offering long, clean views of the city in all directions. Home to some of Chicago’s premiere theater and artistic collaborations (and the best views in town), this is an absolute gem of a venue with flexibility to perfectly match your event wishlist, whether you’re having a summer extravaganza or icy winter wonderland. This space offers use of 4 venues and/or you’re able to rent out the entire space for a truly dramatic extravaganza.
