At the launch event for The Lakewood, the new event space from Paramount Events, guests took in the stunning new venue and its sleek, modern accents. Decor from Kehoe Designs added to the chic feel, and DJ Brent from Fig Media kept the party going. The party highlights didn’t stop there: two chef stations, passed hors d’oeuvres and sweets showcased the delicious food of Paramount Events.

Introducing a fabulous new way for the city of Chicago to throw fêtes for any occasion, The Lakewood elevates the local breadth of opportunities available to party planners—adding excitement, style and Paramount’s specialty touches.

With a modern backdrop and fully customized experience curated by a team of experts at Paramount Events, The Lakewood presents an all-encompassing stage for weddings, meetings, corporate gatherings and everything in between. Diversifying the Chicago venue landscape, The Lakewood features an on-site kitchen helmed by Executive Chef Devon Quinn, pairing each planned occasion alongside masterfully curated cuisine embedded with fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced by an on-property urban garden.

Showcasing the ability to seamlessly transform the look and feel of both social and business events, The Lakewood boasts a clean, modern design aesthetic with contemporary elements. Sleek polished concrete floors, lofted ceilings, custom architectural display shelving, and advanced sound and AV capabilities, among other modern accents, offer a canvas to transform occasions into one-of-a-kind events.  With a seated capacity of up to 330, or 600 for larger scale expositions and cocktail parties, The Lakewood plays host to receptions, dinners, seminars, theatre, and other affairs both large and small.

“The West Lake District is quickly becoming the hottest area in the city to hold celebrations, and we’re absolutely thrilled to open our doors as a new destination,” says  Jodi Fyfe, the Principal of Paramount Events. “We’re ready to help Chicagoans take every corporate event, wedding, gala, birthday celebration, non-profit function, shopping occasion, and more to the next level.”

The next it venue in Chicago, The Lakewood invites guests to a remarkable experience accentuated by versatility, sophistication, and a high-quality culinary program.  The Lakewood is now accepting event inquiries for this fall, the holiday season, and beyond.
