On Wednesday, May 4th, the former Bulls training facility reopened its doors as Venue One North Shore, the only fully customizable event space in the area. Everywhere you turned, you could find the elements unique to the events by the team at Event Creative, from the hand-crafted penny floor in the secluded wine room, the custom built furniture throughout the venue, and the 7,000 sq. ft. outdoor garden space.
The event was attended by both media and event industry professionals, including corporate and social event planners, as well as many business owners from the area. Venue One North Shore mirrors Venue One Chicago in that it can be completely transformed for any kind of event, from a corporate meeting to a wedding to a branded event. The new 85,000 sq. ft. event space will be able to accommodate events with as many as 1,500 attendees. While the event marked the opening of the venue to the public, the team at Event Creative also illustrated how Venue One North Shore doesn’t just house an event, it becomes it.
“Great to bring the Event Creative and Venue One creativity, food and service to one of the North Shore’s iconic and revered venues! Venue One North Shore will be THE venue for some of the area’s most unique and prominent events.” said David Bunte, VP of Venues at Venue One.
One alluring element of Venue One North Shore is the customizable menu—handcrafted by Chef Shawn Doolin—which can accommodate any type of event. At the event, guests were treated to a variety of hors d’oeuvres, including miniature Chicago-style hot dogs, Steamed Bao with bbq short ribs and hoisin sauce, Earl Grey tea cookies with limoncello ganache, and much more.
“Sean and his team have done an incredible job of creating an upscale, urban feel to the space without losing the notoriety of the space that the Bulls occupied for many years,” says Debbie Tucker, President of Eventure. “I was there with my clients and they, too, were impressed with the transformation of this space set so conveniently in the suburbs. I think this is a great suburban alternative for both social and corporate events and I look forward to creating some magic in this unique space with Event Creative.”
