Wrigley is now drawing more than just baseball fans to the area. Chicago’s new American Airlines Conference Center is located in the mixed-use office space at The Park at Wrigley, adjacent to the ballpark.
The 5,300-square-foot conference center is managed by Marquee Sports & Entertainment and can host groups from 12 to 300. Four event spaces, including the Home Plate Room with an outdoor terrace overlooking The Park at Wrigley and views of the city skyline, as well as the aptly named First Base Room, Second Base Room and Third Base Room, can be used as individual rooms for smaller events or in its entirety.
“Whether a group wants to book a meeting room during a high-energy summer Cubs game or host a private party and skate on the outdoor ice skating rink in December, Marquee Sports & Entertainment is excited to offer a premier customizable event space year-round,” Andy Blackburn, co-managing director of Marquee Sports & Entertainment, said.
Levy Restaurants is the on-site catering provider of the Wrigleyville conference center, and customizable menu options include classic ballpark fare like a “Make Your Own Chicago Dog” station and a doughnut sundae station for dessert.
The Park at Wrigley is a happening place both during baseball season and off-season. On game days it is a backyard for fans and on non-game days there are farmers markets, community events, festivals and concerts. There is also Budweiser Brickhouse Tavern and Starbucks Reserve Bar.
Marquee Sports & Entertainment also books other meeting and event spaces in addition to The Park at Wrigley, including the nearby Hotel Zachary and Wrigley Rooftops.
