About School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Ascending the grand staircase of the SAIC Ballroom, your guests are transported to another era. Like a scene out of Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, the gilded jazz age of the Roaring 20s, your special event will radiate classic elegance. Formerly the Illinois Athletic Club, this room has been restored to reflect the look and feel of its 1927 splendor. Winner of numerous awards for architectural excellence, the Ballroom boasts 26-foot ceilings, marbleized columns, and a terrazzo dance floor. Complemented by permanent bars on the main floor and balcony, a performance stage, theatrical lighting, and customized sound system, the Ballroom is the perfect venue for any event.
