Sample Party Timeline


"Choosing Lillstreet Loft to host my husband's 50th birthday party was absolutely perfect. The space is extremely dynamic so that no two events look alike, nor does the Loft feel empty whether hosting 20 or 100 guests. All of our guests were energized by the environment and had a memorable time at the party!"
– Andrea Altstadt Odom

"Just wanted to first thank you for everything with the event last week. Everyone had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the entire day, especially the facilities at Lillstreet. Thank you for being so open to our event - it made a huge difference."
– Matt Miles, Office Manager, Kenshoo

"Thank you so much to you and everyone at Lillstreet for helping us throw an amazing party. I know everyone loved the space, and I think it really fit with our theme and our guests. It was great to work with you, and I hope we can do so again soon. Thank you!"
– Chicago Women in Publishing
