Looking to get away for a night or planning a reunion with old friends? Or maybe you’re about to make the ultimate commitment and are looking for a place to throw your bachelor(ette) party. Whatever the reason–not that you ever need a reason to have a great party–these rentals in Chicago will help make your dream become a reality. And why wouldn’t you want to have your party in Chicago? You can spend the day enjoying some of the unique experiences that the city has to offer. You can take insta-worthy pictures at The Bean, stroll around and soak up that vitamin D at Grant Park, and maybe even catch a game at Wrigley Park (while obviously enjoying an order of nachos). More importantly, you can satiate your stomach (and your heart) by eating some deep dish pizza from Lou Malnati’s, an Italian beef sandwich from Al’s Italian Beef, and top it off with a Marshmallow Sundae that you’re not going to want to share from Margie’s Candies. If you are not ready to leave the streets yet, you can start the party early by exploring some of the nightlife that Chicago has to offer. You can grab dinner at that restaurant you have been dying to bring your friends to or go out on a full-out bar crawl. And since you’ve rented one of the greatest Airbnbs that also doubles as a party rental, you can bring the fun home; you get to enjoy your friends’ and family’s company all night long! So you better start planning because these rentals won’t last long and who doesn’t want to throw the party of a lifetime in a fantastic city.
You know you have always wanted to throw an epic loft party but couldn’t for one of two reasons: one, you didn’t actually have a loft or two, you have a loft but it is not large enough to throw the party you have in mind. Well, with Loft 606 available for rent, both of those issues no longer apply! You can now throw the best loft party ever in this beautiful space. Loft 606 is an extremely spacious (over five thousand square feet) loft with high ceilings (twenty-six feet tall!) and skylights throughout creating an extremely naturally well-lit loft during the day and the perfect space for stargazing at night. The loft is perfect for parties as it has a massive gourmet kitchen with high tech appliances and a full-size bar so you can prevent any drink spillage near the food and cooking. If the weather permits, you can bring the party outside on either the garden patio or the rooftop deck–or both! Both spaces are furnished with seating and the garden even has a barbecue. If that wasn’t enough to convince you to rent this place, then you will be happy to hear that there is also more than enough space for all your guests to sleep at the end of the night; there are seven bedrooms with eleven beds, two large couches, and extra air mattresses are available. There are also two and a half massive bathrooms with the extra perks of a jacuzzi and rain shower in the master bath. The owners of this lovely space are not new to parties, and so if you need any extras like spa services (provided by The Ruby Room), a private chef to cook you the meal of your dreams, or a bartender to keep the drinks a-flowin’, just let the hosts know and they can help arrange these services (just note that these all would cost an additional fee). Clearly, Loft 606 is ahh-mazing and if you know you want to plan a party then you better start booking; but if a party is something you happen to want throw together last minute you might be able to score a discount if it is less than one week away!

Second up on our list of party rentals in Chicago is this sprawling mansion in the “Chicago countryside,” better known as Naperville. This beautiful mansion sits on a two and a half acre lot and is three stories with gorgeous windows and skylights that bring in so much natural light. This is an amazing space for parties with a spacious kitchen great whose layout is perfect for hosting, a lovely sunroom with a ping pong table, and a plethora of seating areas including dining rooms, breakfast nooks, multiple living rooms, and more! And most importantly (and what I would be most excited about), are the indoor heated pool (yes, an indoor pool that you can use even when it is snowing) and a full sauna and a wet bar and even a wine cellar. Clearly, this mansion has it all–even a tennis court and three patios in the backyard–but don’t worry, there is still more. When your party people tire out and want to rest their heads they can do so in one of the seven beds in the five bedrooms and freshen up in one of seven (and a half) bathrooms (all with marble accents). This country mansion is the perfect way to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city but still have an amazing time with friends and family; and if you need any extra services like a private car, the hosts can even get you a great discounted deal on that!

We are back to the city with this gorgeous East meets West Condo in the River West/West Town area. The condo is the perfect entertainment space because it is right downtown near a plethora of amazing restaurants and nightlife activities. The condo is set up with two main floors; the entire top floor is meant for your entertainment purposes with an eat-in kitchen that opens up to a spacious dining area, all of which flows nicely into the top floor living room that overlooks a lovely balcony. Now if you head towards the back of the main floor you will find access to a five hundred square foot rooftop deck which is fully furnished; clearly a wonderful space to bask in the sun or enjoy some drinks while overlooking the sunset during the evening. Now if you head to the next floor, you will find all your living accommodations. On this floor you shall find three expansive bedrooms that can easily sleep ten guests if not more, two luxury bathrooms (with an extra powder room on the entertaining level), and an air tub/jacuzzi for two. While this condo may not be as large as some of the other places on this list, it definitely comes with all the amenities you would want for a party space and is in a prime location.

If you weren’t already planning on throwing a sophisticated soiree then I am positive that these pictures will make you want to. The 22 East Elm Condo is absolutely stunning; just look at it. It is incredibly modern and has all the high-end finishes that you could possibly want. The condo is in the heart of the Chicago Gold Coast near popular restaurants: Gibson’s, Tavern on Rush, and Carmine’s, and walking distance to the magnificent mile and oak street beech. The condo itself has a super spacious open floor plan with a living room that expands all the way to the kitchen. In the center of the space is this super cool glass floor that “overlooks” a green sitting room below - bringing the outdoors inside. If your guests aren’t already drooling at the sleek finishes (like I am), then they are going to love their rooms. There are five bedrooms and six luxury bathrooms with spa amenities. There is also a dry sauna, a glass elevator in the middle (AHH), a wine cellar, and plenty of windows to bring in natural light. Honestly, this place is like a modern paradise, and if you don’t book it for your party soon it might be gone (maybe even by me ;) because it looks like my dream home).

Last but certainly not least is the North Shore Palace. This palatial estate is in on the north shore of Northbrook, Chicago. It is truly a luxurious getaway perfect for any family, groups of friends, reunion parties, events and anything and everything else. The palace (as I shall hereafter call this beautiful villa) has a grand entrance with floor to ceiling windows (which carry on throughout the house) and an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances that you can only dream of having. If you are planning a party in the warmer months, you can head on outside and enjoy the massive pool and hot tub and there is plenty of space for an outdoor fête. But if it’s too cold to go outside or you’re just not feeling the pool you can enjoy a movie in the home theater, complete with eight velvety smooth reclining movie theater chairs in a room with perfect acoustics that all mimics a real movie theater (albeit an upgraded one) in the comforts of your own home (er, home for a night). And don’t worry, your guests won’t have to fall asleep on these comfy reclining chairs (even though some might want to) because instead they have the option of falling asleep in one of nine beds in the six bedrooms. And I guarantee there will be no fighting for bathroom time because there are seven full baths (six of which are en-suites) that all your guests and you can freshen up in! Obviously, the Palace of Northbrook is a spectacular place to throw a party. So I don’t know what you are waiting for to start booking and start planning!

A Little Party Never Killed Nobody
Fergie says it best: a little party never killed nobody. You know you have that family get-together or college reunion to plan, so you may as well choose one of these extravagantly amazing locations and throw yourself (and all your guests) an incredible soiree. All of these places have all the amenities you could ever want and give you the option of a city party or country escape. If you are hoping to tear up Chicago and then retreat to your rental to keep the party going then you can do that, or if you want to relax and get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, you can take a dip in a pool or sweat out your toxins in a sauna. All of these one night rentals give you everything you need to throw a party that even Jay Gatsby would be jealous of.
