Urban Pioneer Group is a rustic event venue located in Forest Park, IL. Reminiscent of a cozy country cottage, this venue also features an innovative and conscious design. The company’s owners constructed their establishment based on the biophilic philosophy of including natural materials and light in the venue.
The event space at Urban Pioneer Group incorporates both modern and vintage themes in its design. Exposed brick, crystal chandeliers, and embossed metal ceilings showcase an Old World aesthetic.

It also features a contemporary kitchen and a commercial catering kitchen for chefs and other professionals to rent for private events. The rooftop space boasts panoramic views and guests can enjoy sunset vistas of the Chicago skyline.
