The Nichols Board of Trustees Suite is the ideal space for intimate functions. Located on the second level of the Modern Wing, the Nichols Board of Trustees Suite is accessed via a private elevator that opens into a small lobby, ideal for welcoming your guests with butler-passed champagne and hors d'oeuvres or stationing your meeting's registration.
Boasting wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows facing Millennium Park, the Frank Gehry Pritzker Pavilion, and Chicago's northern skyline, the suite's main room offers a dazzling view of the city’s lights and greenery. However, this exclusive venue is not accessible to the public; the only way to witness its spectacular views is to attend an event here, making this space a very special treat for your guests.
