About Urban Retreat Options

Urban Retreat Options is a pleasant surprise in an urban environment featuring a modern indoor space with adjoining private courtyard garden. It was started by Community Service Options, Inc (a not for profit social service agency serving Chicago's South side since 1989) to provide much needed affordable and green rental space for intimate weddings, family gatherings, community meetings, classes, and events on Chicago's South side.

party vendors - An Eventective User from chicago il

The last party vendor that i was a part of helping with setting up the party was with Urban Retreat Options. Once i called to try to get a quote on their services, the customer service was excellent, and the people were nice. They offerd me a discount due to the simple fact that we were having less than one hundred people that were due to be in attendance. They also included the food and drinks with the package that we selected, and also they included the bar tender and drinks until the event ended at ten o'clock. Once the event began everything went very smooth, the party started on time, the food was already prepared, the speaker system was ready and the dj was also ready. Once everyone arrived they all commented on how beautiful the acutal place was. They had a very large ball room with nice silk table cloths and candles set up. We had a full three course meal, good music, and good food. Every one had a good time and the event started on time and ended right on time. I highly recommend Urban Retreat Options to hold your events because the service was good, the price was right, and it was organized and lots of fun.

Management Response
This is a wonderful review and I feel that we are a good value with great customer service but I know that this review was not intended for us as some of the services identified are not offered at Urban Retreat Options. I still encourage you to check out Urban Retreat Options for your venue needs. URO is a pleasant oasis in an urban environment.
