About Glessner House
Glessner House invites you to celebrate your special day in our exquisite estate located in the heart of the Prairie Avenue Historic District of Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood. Featuring a private courtyard, this intimate venue offers a distinct alternative to hotels and banquet halls. Café-styled lighting illuminates the courtyard, while a modern Bose sound system provides an intimate yet jovial environment for any occasion. Once home to prized horses, our updated coach house serves as a beautiful interior event space and is fully accessible. Located directly north of the Chicago Women’s Park and Gardens, Glessner House is both easily accessed by public transportation and is within walking distance of three major hotels. A nearby parking lot is also available as needed. Prairie Avenue once boasted over 90 mansions built by the movers and shakers of Chicago. One of only seven remaining, Glessner House stands tall at the corner of 18th Street and Prairie Avenue, a treasure for all time.
