City Historical Meeting Space Outdoor Skyline Waterfront

A true gem located on a 91-acre peninsular piece of land surrounded by Lake Michigan to the south and east and Burnham Harbor to the west, Northerly Island is sure to amaze your guests.
Just southwest of the Museum Campus and directly east of Soldier Field, this venue offers both the city skyline and Lake Michigan as backdrops that are perfect for a formal black tie gala or a lakeside cocktail reception.

The Visitors Center is the former terminal building when the area was Meigs Field.
The amount of space also caters to the needs of meeting planners as well as larger scale productions and conventions. This distinctive location is a very exclusive selection for your special event and one that your guests will always remember!
