1. Cafe Brauer

I may be a little biased, since my husband and I got married here, and thus it will always hold a special place in my heart.  But going beyond my bias, with the gorgeous prairie style architecture and the spectacular views of Lincoln Park and the city skyline as seen from the loggias, what’s not to love?  It’s a beautiful oasis for a Chicago wedding set in the middle of Lincoln Park just adjacent to the Lincoln Park Zoo.  Perfect for those couples wanting a downtown Chicago wedding with the feel of the outdoors & nature as well.  From an architectural standpoint, the sea-foam green steel work seen out front as well as within the ceiling of the ballroom is absolutely beautiful.  The skylight allows for the sunshine to just pour into the main ballroom.
