Hoping someone can help me out here.  I am working with a skeptic organization to organize an event and we are having difficulty finding an appropriate venue.


We need a free or cheap space for roughly 30 -40 people.  Part of the event is a demonstration involving food that is from a very specialized menu so we want to bring in our own food.  We'd like to have alcohol available as well.


Most of the places I've found have a room charge of $500 or more OR require that we purchase from their menu or contracted caterer which is not really an option. 


Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, all!

I might suggest The Charnel House.  Located in Logan Square, it's an ex-funeral home that is now a multimedia arts building.  I've done a few shows there and like Billy and Vicky, the owners, a great deal.

I'm not sure by your description if you want to PREPARE food at the venue and, if so, what you'd need to prepare the food.  If you need a full-on kitchen, then this venue would not be for you.  However, if you need something that's intimate, unique and pretty affordable, this is a good spot.

Thanks, Vincent!  I believe most of our food prep will be done prior to the event.  I am checking them out right now.  Appreciate the suggestion!

Just wondering, what ended up being a good venue for that size/type of meetup?
