A space with some soul.
Professionally designed, and cozy as can be.
Exposed brick and high ceilings lend a loft-like, industrial vibe to our inviting space. Great lighting, high-end furniture, and a solid sound system. Flexible staging can take Ampersand from a daytime corporate event to a nighttime networking to a weekend family celebration.

Our Art@Ampersand program means thoughtfully curated art is often on our walls. It can make for a great backdrop, a good conversation starter or add the character that is often missing from blank-slate venues.
Ampersand is located in Logan Square, a bustling, cool neighborhood west of Chicago’s downtown. Great restaurants, shopping and culture are just some of what Logan Square offers. But, we’re off the main, crowded drag so you can always find convenient parking. Plus, we’re crazy close to the CTA Blue Line Logan Square Station, several bus stops and a Divvy station.
We like to say yes but there are some nos.
No weddings. Really. There are great spaces in Chicago to start your life together. Our space isn’t one of them.
No smoking inside or on the deck. There is a $500 fine for smoking anywhere within 15 feet.
No weapons. No exceptions.
You cannot charge admission at the door or charge for food or alcohol.
No touching or removing the art.
No glitter or confetti. We’re serious. It’s a nightmare to cleanup.
