Chicago hotel adds new event space

The recently updated Le Méridien Essex Chicago has a new event space developed by Chicago-based LM Catering & Events. The LM Studio Chicago can host weddings, cocktail parties or business meetings. 

LM Studio is a two-level atelier occupying the fifth and sixth floors overlooking historic Michigan Avenue and Grant Park and has an open floorplan and custom bar. The main event space is on the sixth floor, while the Atrium, located on the fifth floor, is suited for smaller, more intimate events. Both spaces have floor-to-ceiling windows with park views, a custom-built bar and lounge seating. LM Studio also has a built-in sound system and a customizable hologram projector. 

Le Méridien Essex Chicago is part of a mixed-use lifestyle development that includes the bi-level event space as well as the 479-unit Sentral Michigan Avenue luxury apartment tower and a ground-floor restaurant from LM Restaurant Group, Grant Park Bistro.
