Located in Chicago, Stan Mansion is a luxurious special-event venue with facilities that are ideal for hosting:
wedding ceremonies and receptions
artistic and musical performances
conferences and presentations
and many other private functions.
Encompassing over 20,000 square feet, the three-story mansion contains banquet rooms, large party spaces, and two auditoriums with stages. There are catering amenities on site and parking arrangements can be made for large gatherings. Spaces are rented out based on availability with flexible daily rates; month-to-month and long-term leases are also available. The mansion is shown by appointment only.
Formerly a Masonic temple, Stan Mansion was designed by architect Moritz F. Stranch and built in 1921. It is located in Logan Square, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Chicago. When the city was incorporated in 1837, city planners wanted Chicago’s image to reflect the motto “Urbs in Horto,” or “City Set in a Garden.” As a result, Logan Square became enriched with large, tree-lined boulevards and parks, as well as some of the city’s most magnificent homes and mansions, and is now referred to as the “Emerald Necklace of Chicago.”
Originally settled by wealthy Eastern European immigrants, the neighborhood’s architecture reflects the diverse and eclectic backgrounds of those who developed and lived in the area. Stan Mansion’s own castle-like façade and elegant grounds provide a prime example of the rich authenticity achieved by the city’s early architects and designers.

|"Beautiful and friendly wedding venue", An Eventective User from Ann Arbor, MI|
|We got married at the Stan Mansion on October 2nd, 2011. The staff is very helpful and truly want your wedding to go well. Some of the perks of this venue are: you can bring your own booze (pretty rare in Chicago); There's a recommended vendor list, but the owner will allow you to go off list unless she's had a bad experience with the vendor previously; Again, staff seem much more like helpful friends than business people. My only real negative on the Stan Mansion is that there's no kitchen! Because of this your caterer has to bring in a lot of equipment, and that can get pricey.|

|The Stan Mansion is a great place to go after you get married if you want your wedding be futuristic, rather then stuck in the past. The venue is very clean and very fast. For example, Me and my newlywed bride only had to wit about 10 minutes when we requested catering service for our room. Although this did not really matter the elevator in the building was one of the fasted that I have used in my entire life. The overall felling of the building was phenomenal , I felt like I stepped into 2100. Chicago is known for being corrupt, noisy, dirty and unfriendly. However, the building was like an oasis as it was very quiet, the people in it were very polite and it was exceptional clean. I didn't think the city of Chicago could be so clean. In fact it the venue was clean then the motels I once went to do business in new York. The most amazing thing about the experience was the friendliness of the people who worked there, not only were they very polite, they were very fast at doing a great job. I have one of the guys who worked there a tip of over 100 dollars. I kind of regret it but I think I gave out close to 300 dollars worth of tips when I was there, which is 10 percent of the 3000 dollar price tag that the experience cost for about 5 days. Overall the venue was very clean, Modern, and reasonable priced.|

|I went to the Stan Mansion for a wedding about two weeks ago. When I arrived I figured It'll be the same wedding ceremony like all the other millions I've been to. However, this one was different. I think it was because, how beautiful the Stan Mansion was, it reminded me of something out of a fairy tale. Upon arrival the footmen escorted me to my area where I was able to see the glamour of the ball room and the decorations where green, and a baby blue. I think the venue itself out did the weddings. I would totally recommend this venue, the Stan Mansion teamed up with some of the most amazing wedding vendors in all of Chicago for an unforgettable wedding event, where you can have a 30 minute dream wedding for only $ 800 that day and head off to your honeymoon. A quick wedding indeed, but it is perfect for those who don't mind strangers spectating from the crowd, and if you want your privacy there were ceremonies that were closed for about $100.00 more. I attend weddings across the country, and I must say that is one of my favorite venues. I know that you would feel the same.|
