Guest Star: Events at the Beautiful Bridgeport Art Center

With four versatile wedding bands, a team of DJs and a cadre of solo musicians, Stitely Entertainment has performed all over Chicagoland. But one of the most unique (and beautiful) event spaces is the Skyline Loft of the Bridgeport Art Center. The Bridgeport Art Center is a multidisciplinary venue where artists, fashion designers and creative professionals of all kinds can find space to work, create and share their ideas. We spoke to the Natalya Judina to get the skinny on holding events at this gorgeous locale.

SE: Can you give us a rundown of the different rooms?
Natalya Judina: We have one huge event space of 18,000 sq.feet, called the ‘Skyline Loft.’

SE: What makes the Bridgeport Art Center different from other venues?
NJ: Skyline Loft at the Bridgeport Art Center is newly renovated and its completion took three years and cost $1,000,000. We kept the original wooden floor, and re-purpose the metal from the building that is used for the floor and the artistically designed restrooms. Skyline Loft has an amazing view of the Chicago skyline and 120 linear feet of skylight running through the space. We also have an elevator that is capable of caring car / objects up to 8,000 pounds. Some customers choose to decorate this elevator with chandelier and use it as an extra entertainment space with a bar/music/chairs/cocktails, so that guests have something to do while they are getting up to the 5th floor.

SE: What goes into creating a catering menu?
NJ: The approved caterers on our vendor list can create any menu for any type of event. Some of the top caterers in the city are on the list.

SE: How does The Bridgeport Art Center staff work with other vendors, such as Stitely Entertainment?
NJ: We just try to support each other to make an event as special and unique as we can.

SE: What are your favorite ideas from recent weddings?
NJ: Any wedding should be special. In order to make it happened it’s important that the Event space has a supportive, and not a leading role during the wedding event. Skyline Loft at the Bridgeport Art Center is this place. It has raw urban elegance of timber beams and hardwood floors that allow to create such background for an event that is both beautiful and subtle in its nature. In other words, Skyline Loft emphasizes a couple, not itself, and makes their day as special & unique as a couple want it to be.

SE: Are there any cool corporate clients or events that have booked in the past?
NJ: We had different corporate events in the past, such as Skyy Vodka New Product launch or Italian Expo, as well as Fashion and Trade shows.

SE: Any pictures you’d like to share with us?
