Sisters Corinne & Cerena along with their parents Debbie & Clayton make up the close-knit team of Warehouse 109. Each bringing a unique strength to the business, the venue has flourished since its creation in January 2015.
The design of the space stems from the designer in the family, Corinne, who also works as a full-time architect in Chicago. Cerena's background in business and enthusiasm for coordination, planning and organizing keeps the operation running efficiently and smoothly. Event planning has always been of interest to the sisters, making this venture a great way for the two of them to collaborate on a daily basis!
Let's be honest - Debbie & Clayton are the backbone to Warehouse 109. They live in the neighborhood allowing them to be present for visitors and guests to drop by for tours and event set-up. They also provide the key icons to the venue - a rotating Antique Motorcycle collection, which is featured on the 3-bike high gallery wall. This expert "Ebaying, antique finding duo" also works to create interesting and tasteful vignettes throughout the space. Not to mention their expertise in construction and contracting helps during renovations and constant improvements to the space.
Beginning with the initial design for Corinne and her husband's wedding reception, and now incorporating new design developments, the space fulfills the family's vision for a fun, laid-back, and interesting venue. The direction for the business has always been, "If it seems like something we would personally enjoy in a venue, then lets go with it!" So far the formula seems to be working and the space is receiving great reviews from hosts and party goers alike!
Warehouse 109 is excited to show off their most recent renovations, so feel free to stop by and hang out!
