Location, Location, Location

Originally the site of historic Haymarket Square (where the world’s labor movement began) and the meatpacking district, the West Loop has evolved into a lively neighborhood of cutting edge businesses, restaurants helmed by world-famous innovative chefs and a bustling nightlife thanks to popular music venues, art galleries, wine bars, brewpubs, outdoor cafes and nightclubs. The neighborhood retains its historic flavor of 1880s buildings situated on a boulevard with the back streets still plying the old meatpacking trade. Greektown borders on the south edge, providing a totally different ethnic Chicago experience.

Catalyst Ranch is easily accessible. Planes, trains and automobiles, buses and El stops are all close to our venue. We also work with a nearby parking garage for discounted parking.
