Situated on the grounds of Glessner House in Chicago IL, The Coach House is available for private gatherings. Constructed in 1887, this historic mansion was designed by celebrated architect Henry Hobson Richardson and is recognized as a National Historic Landmark. Its coach house provides a traditional setting for personal and professional functions.
The Coach House is a rustic and spacious room that has retained its authentic charm. Originally the stables and carriage house of the Glessner family, authentic features such as wooden beams and panels and white-tiled walls have been preserved. This is a flexible space with a capacity of 80 to 100 people. It can be reimagined to the tastes and preferences of individuals, whether they seek a country-chic aesthetic or an elegant and sophisticated affair.
