My husband and I just got married on the Roof of theWit! We absolutely loved the gorgeous views from the 27th floor! The food and drinks were amazing, and the staff was so helpful with the planning process and all throughout the event. Britteny was our main contact and she was very responsive, helpful, and personable throughout the entire process. She and the rest of the staff worked hard to ensure that we and our guests had a fantastic experience! Our weekend was truly magical! This venue gets my highest recommendation.

If you want a fairytale wedding you read about in a book or watch in a movie, then you have to choose the theWit. We looked at every well known venue in Chicago and the suburbs, but once we seen the theWit, we knew it was the place for us. The venue is gorgeous! The rooftop cocktail hour kept our guests in amazement the entire time. The ballroom was elegant, modern, and the view of state street at night is pure Chicago!! You know you have a great wedding when nearly a week later I hear from family and friends and they tell me that it was the greatest wedding they have ever been too! Friends tell us they have never seen Chicago from the rooftop, it was an experience of their life. The venue is perfect, but more importantly is the customer service, which is top notch. It all starts with Brittney Epstein, the Senior Catering Manager at theWit and her staff. The first time we met Brittney, she made us feel so important because she simply listened to what we were looking for and made every accomadation we requested. Brittney picked up the phone when I called, followed up promptly and walked us through the entire process. Brittney became a friend of ours for two years and made us her top priority. As for the food, simply perfect! The steak was Phenominal! The chef prepares the food on site and it is by far the best food I've ever had at a wedding, and to be honest, better than many city restaurants. We simply love theWit and would not change one thing. We had the perfect wedding! I highly recommend theWit to anyone looking to plan the wedding of their dreams. Thank you theWit!

My husband and I had our wedding and reception at theWit this past October and it was absolutely amazing! One of the best things about having your wedding here (other than the stunning views of the city and the delicious food) is Brittney Epstein. This awesome lady helped me through EVERY step of planning our big day and I have no idea what we would have done without her. She is SO organized and a total professional. There were times I thought I was going to have a full on bridezilla moment and but she always kept me calm. Thanks to Brittney, theWit team, and our incredible vendors we had a gorgeous wedding that went off without a hitch!

I would highly recommend the Wit Hotel in Chicago to anyone looking for a gorgeous venue for their wedding and an exciting place for their guests to visit and stay. Our hotel suites were modern and spacious for our daughter's wedding. The staff was very attentive and professional to all our guests. There was an elegant ceremony in the Wilde Ballroom, followed by cocktails and a reception on the Roof Patio. The wedding guests were in awe of not only the wedding space, but the spectacular views of the city around them. The Senior Social Catering Manager, Brittney Epstein , went above and beyond for my daughter and her fiance, to give them the wedding of their dreams. While planning a wedding can be overwhelming to many, Brittney was a pleasure to work with and encouraged us to have fun with it. The wedding was just perfect and we could not have done it without her. The Wit Hotel in Chicago is lucky to have her and so will anyone looking to have their special day there. Your in good hands with Brittney Epstein!

From start to finish theWit made every detail of our wedding perfect. The customer service of all of the staff from bellhops to banquets to the Chef was stellar, Security & Housekeeping too! Our family & friends are still raving about the mac n cheese bar, the cake, & all of the delicious food & creative desserts. The rooftop made for epic photos & a modern wedding atmosphere that I know cannot be beat. Brittney Epstein the Senior Social Catering Manager made us feel loved, welcome, & top priority throughout the entire planning process & event. She is always quick to respond & super easy to work with. We love theWIT & highly recommend it to anyone looking to plan the wedding truly of your dreams. Not one complaint from our entire (some of them hard to please) :) family.

ABOVE & BEYOND what we dreamed about!!! The Wit and its staff made our special evening on 6-11-16 something that our guests will be talking about for years to come. The food was knock your socks off (hats off to their amazing chef and her creations), the service was incredible from the moment you arrive at the front door to the second you leave. There are a few very special people that I would like to highlight for exceptional service. Brittney Epstein Senior Social Catering Manager is a pleasure to work with she really listened to what we wanted and what our vision was. She helped make it come to life and was there making sure every detail fit into place the night of the event. Her attention to detail and coordination between staff with the help of Paul the day/night of our wedding and the multiple locations Wit Rooftop (cocktail hour) the Ballroom (reception) and all our outside vendors allowed us to enjoy or big day and relax knowing that they would make sure it was all perfect and it truly was. We are so grateful for everything they did and have memories that will last a lifetime thanks to The Wit and the staff. Sarah & Dimitri

Our wedding ceremony and reception was held at theWit on May 7, and it was honestly the most perfect day! The staff at theWit was outstanding and exceeded our expectations, making sure everything flowed seamlessly from start to finish. Brittney Epstein was absolutely AMAZING! She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with every detail that went into the day/night. We held our cocktail hour on ROOF and our reception was in the third floor ballroom. The venue is gorgeous and views are absolutely breathtaking. We still receive compliments (almost 5 months later) on how beautiful our wedding was. Thank you to theWit for helping us achieve the wedding of our dreams! I would highly recommend theWit!

TheWit is absolutely, hands down the #1 venue in all of downtown Chicago to get married. Believe me, I searched this city high and low and once arriving to theWit, the service I received immediately from their front desk employees and their social manager Brittney, were bar none. I am from out of town and figured that planning a wedding from out of town would be a HUGE hassle and I would never get exactly what I wanted, but the reality was exactly the opposite. Brittney handled every detail from smallest to the largest items I had on my list and everything went FLAWLESSLY!! I was also nervous about the venues size because we were going to have around 200 people, but the team at theWit set everything up SO well, everyone was able to eat and drink in peace, and yet everyone was still out on the dance floor the entire night. If you are looking for a wedding venue in Chicago, look no further. The service and quality of everything here (ESPECIALLY the food- it was truly remarkable) are the best you will find in the city. Take my word for it!

Our Wedding was in October of 2015 at the ROOF of TheWit Hotel. From the very beginning of the planning process, we had a fantastic lead in Brittney, the hotel's point of contact for us. She took the time to learn our vision for both the ceremony and reception, and executed it to perfection. Yes, our entire event was perfection! Our guests raved about our afternoon wedding and commented it was one of the best weddings they have ever experienced. A lot credit goes towards the fantastic food and beverage (both were abundant) service; the bartenders and staff made sure there were no lines at the bar, the food was easily accessible and presented beautifully. As for the venue, we had a late morning ceremony followed by the 1PM reception, both at the ROOF. The incredible views of the city combined with a glimpse of Lake Michigan and the Millennium Park, as well as the brilliant sun bathing the dance floor created a surreal, fairy tale-like celebration. Brittney's thoughtfulness and attention to detail were incredibly helpful - from the valet service and guest escort to our favorite bottle of wine in our room and the final dance song selection - the personal touches we did not even expect, were there. The "Hangover" balcony was open and was a huge bonus for the city-view pictures and additional space to hang out. A big Thank You to Brittney and everyone at TheWit for making our wedding such a beautiful memory.

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary with a party for friends and family in the Cibo Matto room. A small group of 50 can be easily overlooked, not at TheWit. From our first conversation with Brittney Epstein to the moment we checked out, we felt that we were her priority. Our guests came from 6 states in addition to locals and everyone commented on the quality of everything from the rooms, to the staff, to the amazing food, thank you Chef Leah!! Have cocktails on the roof and do a Sunday morning brunch, well worth it. Look no further, TheWit has it all including location!

After looking at dozens of venues, we stumbled upon theWit and we knew it was perfect! Brittney Epstein was our main point of contact and provided outstanding service from the point in which we reached out through the brunch after the wedding. We couldn't speak more highly of our experience. She also provided a great list of recommended vendors that we utilized. theWit truly provides a unique and 'city' experience for you and your guests. We wanted to have a venue that truly showcased the city and theWit did just that. Our reception was in Cibo Matto so this added yet another look and feel to the day. There weren't any unforeseen costs with the venue like many others we saw - particularly when you have to bring in a caterer, etc. The rooms were large and worked perfectly for getting ready.
