Venue Rentals

Events at the McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum are unparalleled in the City. 

The Bridgehouse Museum offers event rentals such as dinners, cocktail parties and bridge lift breakfasts. 

Nestled inside the southwest tower of the Michigan Avenue bridge, the museum celebrates the Chicago River and offers your guests a rare chance to view the inner workings of one of Chicago's famous movable bridges.

The Bridgehouse Museum is a unique space made up of five floors, totaling approximately 1,200 sq. ft.  With a capacity of 79 people, it is ideal for intimate receptions, both private and corporate. Renters are free to work with the caterer of their choice, or one of our preferred caterers.

Each rental includes the use of our riverwalk plaza, with spectacular views of downtown Chicago visible only from our unique space.
