When it comes to your wedding, there is an abundance of venues in the Chicago area, but none is as ideal as our historic ballroom or scenic skyline lounge. Our lovely spaces and attentive staff help ensure a memorable event. Especially when you’re on a budget, our affordable rentals offer a great alternative to the traditional setup.

Your wedding rental at DANK Haus not only supports cultural programming, but also the local community and especially the education of our students.

Our historic banquet halls

Whether you select the stunning Marunde Ballroom or intimate Skyline Lounge, every niche of the DANK Haus banquet halls is full of history. Original details like terrazzo floors, gilded ornate plaster moldings, original light fixtures and historic chandeliers date back to when DANK Haus was built in 1927.

However just like our culture, DANK Haus has modernized as well and you can party under a shiny disco ball with your freshly wed bride, groom or party guests. The built-in stage allows for DJ’s and bands alike to entertain your guests and have them on their feet all night long. Updated WiFi technology throughout the building ensures that your wedding photos are shared instantly without any hefty data charges on your guests’ phones.

Your outdoor wedding with a skyline view

Whether you’d like to be wed with the stunning Chicago skyline as a backdrop, or grant your guest to overlook the Windy City while partying, our penthouse rooftop terrace on the 6th floor (Die Terrasse) can be added on to any rental and gives the term outdoor wedding a whole new meaning. Brides and grooms alike have enjoyed this precious feature for their ceremony as well as extension of their reception area. The views, from Edgewater all the way down to Cellular Field, will not only be memorable during the day, but especially at night when Chicago turns into a sea of lights.

What makes our wedding venues so affordable?

Unlike many other venues, we don’t control the catering of your wedding and you can supply your own vendors of choice. We have no mandate on supplier and we’re open to all your preferred caterers. After all this is your wedding and you should be able to choose who can cater your event. Need a little help with selecting a caterer? No problem, we are working with many caterers in the area that can provide food service and DANK Haus can even provide beverage service directly.

Another benefit of DANK Haus is that we offer free parking up to 90 vehicles through our partner and sponsor Fifth Third Bank. The parking lot, which is less than a block away, allows guests of DANK Haus to park after business hours at no charge.
