Your events at the Chicago 1928

The former warehouse in Zurich-Oerlikon takes you to the Chicago of the 1920s. With the fitting decoration you can create an ambience that will be remembered for a long time. In three different event rooms we present to you the right solutions for your individual events. The event hall with an area of 400 m2 is by far the largest room of the venue. Depending on the occasion and on the seating arrangement there can be 370 people at a standing reception or 310 guests at concert. The gallery with its 80 m2 is smaller and ideally suited for up to 50 guests. One of our bars is located here and the other one is on the ground floor. You may also use the Salon Rouge (110 m2) as a separated space.

Come together in the course of a private celebration, enjoy the comfortable tavolata events or celebrate a special anniversary. Whether award ceremony or Christmas party, the Chicago 1928 is suited for the implementation of almost any kind of event. As a colorful program we offer you a high-class selection of various activities. Since you are in the Chicago of the early 20th century, how about gambling? Experienced croupiers support you when you want to try your luck at the in-house casino. We gladly organize show acts like a jazz band or a burlesque dancer. For a quite different entrance control we also provide our Al Capone security officers. Just tell us what you want and we can surely plan the suitable features for you.

Customized business events

Of course you may use this special venue to motivate, reward and delight your team! Whether you are planning a corporate event, a party for clients, an anniversary, a workshop or your Christmas party: the Chicago 1928 is the ideal setting for every happening.

The atmosphere may remind of the 1920s but the technical features are definitely highly modern. We supply excellent possibilities in the sound, light and video design. From projections with roll screen to ambience illumination or the basic equipment, we take full advantage of the possibilities at your individual occasion. Our professional partner smARTec gladly supports you before and during your event. If necessary, we also supply an internet connection.

Romantic wedding celebrations

Many couples are looking for a dreamlike venue such as a castle or a romantic park. Others prefer a small-scale party with a theme. For instance the Roaring Twenties! Thus the Chicago 1928 is the ideal place to host your wedding celebration with up to 100 guests. From wedding ceremony to aperitif or exclusive dinner- here you may have it all. Enjoy a banquet with elegant decoration and look forward to the culinary highlights that are served. Choose between a buffet “Al Capone” or a 4-course menu “Gangster´s paradise”. At your reception you may offer an aperitif “Warehouse” or a standing lunch.

Our experienced kitchen team creates high class dishes with fresh ingredients according to your wishes. Our specialties are American, Italian and Asian cuisine.
