Catalyst Ranch is all about throwing a great party. We make it super easy for you to be the host with the most and not get your hands dirty.

And rest easy knowing we can handle current restrictions on social distance. Our spaces are roomy enough for your in-person guests, and what’s more, our available technology can seamlessly incorporate any virtual components. Whether it’s a fundraiser with VIPs on site and the rest of the guests are virtual, or a wedding where all the guests cannot be included, we can make it happen.

Micro Events are right at home here, too. If what you’re dreaming up isn’t a full fledged “Special Event”, we’re able to make it work. We’ve hosted book releases, photo and film shoots, birthdays, and product launches. Anything’s possible.

Special Events Venue in Chicago
I was looking for an event space to celebrate my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah and Catalyst Ranch was perfect! It is bright and colorful and happy and just gives off a wonderful vibe. It is unconventional and so different from any other venue we looked at. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. They have relationships with all the vendors that you need which makes planning a party there very easy and they are all a pleasure to work with as well. It is such an interesting space with so many things to look at and a great color palate, you don’t really need to decorate at all. We used the Polka and adjacent Tango rooms which worked out great for having quieter areas for talking, enough space for eating and plenty of room for dancing. We loved our party there and it worked out perfectly. It’s an original!
