About Venue

Learn more about this venue for your event needs.

Glessner House is a National Historic Landmark located in Chicago, IL, and presents The Conservatory for private events. Designed by celebrated architect Henry Hobson Richardson, Glessner House was built in 1887 and is considered an architectural treasure on an international scale. The Conservatory showcases unique design elements and provides an ideal setting for small parties and professional functions. The Space The most striking feature of The Conservatory is its geometric vaulted ceiling, a reminder of Richardson’s visionary talent and Glessner House’s rich legacy. The room is octagonal in shape with low windows that offer picturesque views of the courtyard and grounds. These accents provide a pleasing contrast to the angular aesthetic above. This 505 square-foot-space has a capacity of 20 to 40 people and can be arranged in theater-style or with cocktail tables. The Experience This elegant, multi-purpose room lends itself to intimate occasions. D’Absolute Events & Catering curate gatherings at The Conservatory. Experienced wait staff are on hand to tend to guests. They provide everything from tables, linens, and cutlery to exquisite cuisine. Clients are free to source their own beverages, entertainment, and décor needs. A state-of-the-art Bose sound system, an LCD projector, and a presentation podium are available for use at this venue.
