Back in college, I loved going to Theater de la Jeune Lune in the North Loop. It was such a fantastic space, and when it closed, it was such a sad event. So I was very excited when a friend told me that Jeune Lune was being reborn as a wedding and event space called Aria.
Tonight was the open house for local industry folks to view the space. It is very industrial, and you are surrounded by three stories of stone walls and alcoves. The space itself can hold about 1000 people or 700 seated for dinner. It still has the stage and other elements that made this place so unique as well as a side room that has sparkling chandaliers and a long harvest table for smaller events. With caterers on their list including Fabulous Catering, Create Catering, D’Amico and Chowgirls Killer Catering, you know the food will be amazing as well.
The space is pretty bare bones, so clients will get to exercise their imaginations dressing the space up. For tonight’s open house Adagio showed how lighting could dramatically change the walls with a wash of color. There was an exclusivity contract at the event so I’m not able to post pictures of the space, but I know Sally from La Vie Photography got some gorgeous shots that you can feast your eyes on! The website also has images from two events in it’s gallery. I am so excited to see what people do in the future with this venue!
