  • Remarkable event spaces: Enjoy cocktails amongst the futuristic architecture of the Clark Family Welcome Gallery. Later, dance the night away in the Grainger Sky Theater on a floor lit up by LED lights. Both spaces become even more visually stunning when you project your choice of colorful lighting on the walls and ceiling.
  • Spectacular views: Receptions in the Solarium treat diners to Chicago's glittering skyline through a wall of glass, while the Skyline and Sundial Terraces offer an al fresco setting with the same panoramic vistas.
  • Great food and fun: Food For Thought, the Planetarium's exclusive caterer, creates customized menus based on local and organic ingredients whenever possible. You can also add one-of-a-kind activities to your celebration, such as taking your guests on a journey through the cosmos, or inviting them to view the Moon, planets, and stars through a telescope set up just for your event (subject to weather and staff availability).
