Set inside an old brick warehouse building, Salvage One is a one-of-a-kind space boasting an eclectic mix of antiques, furnishings, and decor.

When first setting eyes on the exterior of the building, you would never assume the dreamy world that lies within the walls.

Step inside and the mix of brick, steel, and wood breathe new life into the aged building.

The 60,000 square foot warehouse is decked out with salvaged indoor and outdoor furnishings. The interior boasts exposed brick, low hanging chandeliers, long tables, and pews — complementing an assortment of antiques and furnishings.

Savage One is dedicated to preserving history through architecture and design. Their mission is to keep these timeless pieces relevant and in circulation.

Salvage One is a dual space, set up for both events and antique shopping.

If you are looking for an event that is sure to awe and inspire guests, look no further. Multiple floors allow for parties to hold cocktail hours in one space, then move up to the second floor for music, dancing, and socializing.

If the weather permits, the storybook courtyard is the perfect location for a ceremony or cocktail hour. This space is sheltered by the building’s brick walls and is well-hidden from the urban bustle of Chicago’s city life. There is even a long stretch of grass leading up toward an arch of living greenery, making it a stunning natural aisle runner.

Wander through the space and you never know what you’ll come across. From giant elephant statues to swanky couches, there’s enough eye candy to entertain guests for hours.

Events aside, if you are in the market for acquiring some original pieces for yourself, Salvage One is also a great shopping spot. Come in and you’ll be surrounded by items that will make you feel like you’re on an episode of American Pickers. Each floor is peppered with unique antiques and unusual findings.

The romance of Salvage One’s original style makes it a popular choice for weddings and corporate events. If you are hosting an event, they offer dining tables and chairs for up to 175 guests, lounge seating for 40 guests, lighting, and a bar on both floors.

The first floor has been built out using architectural remains, a perfect spot for cocktails, while the second floor is a much more open space with hardwood floors that functions as a reception hall.

Salvage One is located on Hubbard Street in West Loop year-round. It’s one of our favorite places to cater events!
