About Us

Exchange vows with your loved one with the city of Chicago as your backdrop at theWit, one of “the best hotels in the world.” (Conde Nast Traveler, 2012). This exceptional wedding venue will exceed every expectation from the light, airy atmosphere to the phenomenal details and four-diamond service.  Discover why theWit is the key to the wedding of your dreams.

Imagine a serene setting for your vows, then being whisked up to ROOF for breathtaking views of Chicago and a toast to your new life, followed by dancing the night away in one of our glowing banquet rooms with the city lights as your backdrop.

  • cibo matto—a sensuous space with a glass-enclosed wine tower, a 30-foot ceiling fresco by acclaimed artist Todd Murphy and curtains of silk fringe that flutter with air currents.
  • ROOF—a dramatic and glamorous lounge perched on the 27th floor with private areas to enjoy the awe-inspiring view of Lake Michigan, Chicago River and some of the most celebrated architecture in Chicago.
  • SCREEN—a luxurious, private screening room that can be used as a sports den for groomsmen, a unique rehearsal dinner space to view family videos or a sumptuous space for watching the bride’s favorite movie before the big day.
  • Inspired event spaces—name after famous “wits,” like Oscar Wilde and Emily Dickinson, all of our ballrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows that glow with the lights of the city and are a neutral enough canvass to be transformed into your signature style.
