"This place offers a perfect space to host an event or party. I was there for a wedding reception. Beautiful city views in an open concept/warehouse-like space."
"Absolutely beautiful space. Paul was very accommodating and helpful on the day of the shoot too. We'd definitely use again if ever in the area!"
"Paul and Bethany were so great to work with! They were so helpful and took time to explain everything! The space was clean and is just beautiful! We used the space for my wedding and all my guests loved it! I would highly recommend this space!"
"Space was great. Bethany and Josh were easy to work with. Couldn't have asked for a better venue for my birthday party!"
"The perfect place to have a wedding! Bethany, 1 of 2 owners, and her sister Melissa were great hosts. Communicated well and Very responsive. You have a question in the middle of the night after business hours, you will get a response before you press send. Thanks so much for allowing us to celebrate the best day of our life using your venue."
"I do not know where to begin with writing this review about this fantastic venue, owner, and staff. After my first wedding venue canceled on me, I was frantic trying to find everything I still wanted in a wedding venue. I found the Hive, went to see it and knew immediately this was the place for us. Bethany is fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable, she is very quick to respond to any question, or concern and her staff is great. The owners renovated this 1800's building and kept the original wood, beams, lights, etc. to keep the classy look and feel of the newly renovated space. The way everything is laid out could not be more perfect for a wedding and ceremony. The ambiance of the venue is above all others. You get a beautiful skyline view all day and night which makes it even more special. We just had our wedding and people cannot stop raving about the venue. It is a truly magical space with tremendously fantastic owners and staff. I would book the Hive for any other event without a doubt. Hands down the most unique wedding venue ever!"
"I cannot find the words to describe how amazing the venue and staff were! Bethany was very attentive and made sure we were on the same page about every detail. From the moment we booked the venue, we were in constant contact, and she was always quick to follow up. Our guests were impressed by the beauty of this building and their overall experience at our wedding. Yes, I would book again!"
"Great space. Great owners."
"We had our marriage reception at the Hive on Hubbard and absolutely loved the space. What a great ambiance and an inviting environment for all of our guests to enjoy and celebrate. We worked with Bethany and Paul, and they were both great to work with from the beginning to the day of the event. You don't always get a beautiful space with great service, but with the Hive we did! When the sun went down & the picture windows let the Chicago skyline fill our view, and our guests continued to enjoy and comment on the place. Two weeks later they kept asking how we found such a wonderful space."

"Great venue with a fantastic view of downtown Chicago. Check it out."
"It was a beautiful space; very intimate atmosphere. My wedding was spectacular. The staff works very closely with you throughout the process."
"Our experience was wonderful. Hosts helped us through the wedding planning and kept us on track with their expertise. The building is beautiful and served as a wonderful backdrop for our daughter and son in laws big day. "
"Absolutely the BEST venue for our wedding. It was the first place we saw, and we immediately fell in love with it. Nothing else compared. Bethany was a dream to work with and all of the Hive staff were wonderful. We had a dream day, and all of our guests were wowed by the location, the view, and the building. I wish we could do it all over again! Thank you, Bethany and Josh, for making our wedding a day we will never forget and dream of often. FIVE STARS across the board. Book this gem while you still can, as I'm sure it will blow up soon."

"Space was great, exactly as described and very enjoyable to use and perfect for what I needed. Host was very friendly and easy to communicate with "
"This space is incredible and was perfect for our wedding reception...it's very true to the pictures and is even more impressive in person! We had about 140 guest cocktail style reception and there was plenty of space to dance and mingle with impressive city views, nice bathrooms, and a bridal suite. Bethany was very accommodating, responsive, and a delight to work with from our first walkthrough until the end (with some last minute floor plan changes!). Thank you for helping us make it a night to remember!"
