Crystal Ballroom

This glamorous room hails from 1910 but has been restored to its natural splendor, including crystal chandeliers, intricate molding and balustrades. This room attracts plenty of natural light and looks out to stunning views of Michigan Avenue and Grant Park. As many as 345 people can fit here for a standing reception or as many as 250 people for a seated affair, including a dance floor.

Art Hall

This area features 2,656-square-feet of event space and is ideal for pre-function affairs. Have a cocktail hour here for up to 250 people. Its original glamour has been revitalized and now features an art exhibit highlighting local artists.

English Room

Reminiscent of an exclusive private club, The English Room was imported from a manor house in England in the 1700's and reassembled in The Blackstone in 1910. Mahogany walls, ornate plaster, and colorful stained glass create an enriching experience for up to 80 guests.


Perhaps the most storied of our event spaces, The Barbershop is named after its original purpose. The likes of Richard Nixon and Al Capone once requested barber service in this iconic space, which now serves as 1,117-square-feet of event space laden in marble and featuring suspended ceilings and Greek columns.
