Come summer, the hottest new outdoor venue in town is Theater on the Lake. This newly renovated, multimillion dollar venue is available to host parties, social gatherings, and corporate outings for groups of up to 1,500 guests. The theater’s 3,500-square-foot upscale tavern, The Lakefront Restaurant, offers a seasonal Midwestern menu, and boasts beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. The theater itself can seat up to 250 people. “Our full open floor plan, floor-to-ceiling windows, and incredible city and lakefront views make Theater on the Lake an ideal venue for hosting intimate or large-scale events,” says John Wrenn, president of Lakefront Hospitality Group. 

With new facilities opening soon, organizers will have more venues to choose from than ever before.

 

Greenbuild, the world’s largest green building conference, returned to Chicago for a third time this year. The annual event took place Nov. 14-16 at the LEEDcertified McCormick Place West Building, drawing more than 15,000 attendees and over 350 exhibitors. The U.S. Green Building Council estimates that the conference had an economic impact of $32 million for the city.
