From acclaimed events designer and tastemaker Tom Kehoe comes The Geraghty, a sophisticated and diverse space intent on redefining the standard for custom event venues. Located in the up-and-coming Pilsen neighborhood on the south side of Chicago, it is the perfect place for all your social events.
With his background as an event designer, Kehoe has brought together everything you need to pull off a flawless event. From the size and design of the place, to the smallest decor details, The Geraghty’s purpose is to make events easier to plan and manage.
Designed by industry visionaries, The Geraghty was built to be fully customizable: the perfect backdrop for event designers to execute any vision. But even if you don’t have an event designer in mind for an event you want to plan, there’s no need to worry.
The Geraghty is owned by a decor company that offers in-house separators and drapes that you can hang from their 22-foot ceilings to change up how different rooms are defined for specific events. The 25,000 square feet of open space can seat 800 guests comfortably and can fit up to 1000 standing guests or more (with the right permits).
Visit The Geraghty on a normal day and you’ll be impressed by the modern industrial feel of the place.
When you walk in, you’ll be greeted with giant chandeliers in mixed metal at the entryway. Walk into the event space itself and you’ll find high-end decor, custom chandeliers, and lounge furniture that you can also use for your event.
When you rent the space, you’re provided with several useful inclusions, such as 40 72-inch round tables, 25 4×8 stage decks, up to 400 chairs and 120 feet of draping, overhead wall-to-wall LED lighting, and a sound system that come with technicians. There’s also a designated coat check with a 2000-article capacity and security staff.
These things are all on top of The Geraghty’s amenities, which include parking space for up to 160 cars, 32 restrooms in multiple locations, and WiFi for up to 1000 devices. There’s even a VIP green room with a private restroom!
Of course, we love that The Geraghty takes good care of their catering partners, with both a dedicated and satellite catering area, an easily-accessible loading dock, and their own liquor license.
For all of these reasons and more, Catering by Michaels is proud to partner with The Geraghty as an accredited caterer. Check out a list of other Catering by Michaels venue partners.
