If there’s a premier venue in Chicago to host a wedding, Howells & Hood at the Tribune Tower is it.

Chicago Wedding Venues

Nestled at the base of the legendary Tribune Tower, our stunning restaurant with private party space is a vibrant addition to this timeless classic.

Our private event spaces have the flexibility to host a myriad of wedding options, from traditional ceremonies to more relaxed settings, both indoors and out. We can also accommodate your rehearsal dinner and/or pre/post wedding brunch. At Howells & Hood, your historic day will be accentuated by our dedication to what timeless truly means.

Our location is pure Chicago. Adjacent to where the Chicago River and Michigan Avenue meet, Howells & Hood isn’t just an ideal postcard spot in the heart of our great city, but stands as the unofficial gateway to the Magnificent Mile. The view from our windows and patio offer a panorama of the most impressive architecture in the Chicago skyline. Your guests will revel in our setting for its beauty, historical significance and its authentic Chicago essence.

When you consider our first-rate service, fantastic food and array of marvelous drink options, you will find that our venue is unmatched for a Windy City wedding. Make history today by planning your event with us at Howells & Hood.

Due to Tribune Tower construction, we're closing our doors in October 2018. We have limited availability for private events until then, so be sure to secure your date as soon as possible.
