Entertaining at the Museum is a privilege we extend exclusively with Premier Annual Giving (Fisher Associate, Nickerson Circle or Driehaus Society levels) and Corporate Partners (Marble, Alabaster and Onyx levels). More information about the benefits at each level of membership can be viewed under Choosing the Driehaus Museum.

Combine the elegance and drama of Chicago’s Gilded Age with contemporary entertaining to create an unforgettable event for your guests. The Driehaus Museum, a beautifully restored late 19th-century mansion complemented by an exceptional fine and decorative arts collection, is the perfect venue for a cocktail reception, celebratory dinner, or intimate wedding.

Few other venues in the United States offer such an opulent setting for your event. With its marble-clad entrance hall, magnificently carved wooden interiors, and beautiful rooms - replete with iridescent mosaics and stained glass windows - the mansion known as the “Marble Palace” exemplifies the very essence of Gilded Age luxury.

Each event offers use of the entire Museum including the magnificent Main Hall, the first-floor period rooms, second-floor exhibition galleries, and the historic Ballroom located on the third floor. This exceptional venue, steps from Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, is a premier setting to host your next event.
