How would you rate Parkway Ballroom?
Exceptionally classy ambiance! Excellent and attentive service! Beautiful stage area! This is a beautiful, oasis of class nestled onto Bronzeville's historic King Drive community. One of the best, most beautiful venues for planned social functions in the city. Parking and valet available. Very highly recommended!
Very beautiful place and the food is aways excellent.
Beautiful area & venue. Great place to host upscale events.
Elegant ballroom which is available for private events. Conveniently located on King Drive in Bronzeville.
Wonderful experience each time I participate in an event...Meharry Medical College Chicago Alumni Chapter Fundraisers. The staff and cuisine as eloquent as the decor. So in awe ofthis cherished restored gem on King Drive.
kuddos to Mr. Christopher Cook and Ms. Foy!!!!! Well done...thank you!!!
Expensive. If one can afford it, a great option in the Bronzeville area.
Chef Claude creates tasty dishes and the staff is very nice.
very good people .And food
Nice ballroom. Eastlake always has Christmas parties here.
Great place to hold events on the south side. Good parking options, good acoustics in the ballroom and great staff.
Nice venue, with a good caterer.
Nice intimate space, full bar although didn't use. Upstairs was great for small event.
Great banquet hall...clean with parking in the rear
Parkway Ballroom is where my mother was that's why I love you because my mother wants there and because I get to play and you can to go to all these events and my mother's and she can do anything when she's a vampire she has a lot to do and she she's dumb well she's does
Beautiful place to host events.
Every event I've been to here has been done well and at a fair price. This is the ONLY place I've attended high end events and the food truly taste like it's not mass produced out of some cans. Major kudos to the chef.
I would have given 5 stars but the elevator wasn't working and I was on crutches. Also something went wrong with the plumbing in the ladies washroom.
Historic location with ample room for any type of gathering.
This place is gorgeous and really cool mission to help the neighborhood
Beautiful place to celebrate.
Really nice event space!
Great place for a party or banquet
Black owned and on the Southside....LOVE IT!!!!
My 50th year class reunion was there Oct.13, 2018.
I remember living on 45th & Vincennes my dad would drive us to the corner get some chicken in the box and we'd watch all the glamorously dressed ppl. go into the Parkway. Oh the memories I'll never forget 💖!
Nice place .. classic.
Awesome place to go and have fun with warm joy.
They have a huge ballroom. The dinner was fine. I gave it 3 stars because the ballroom in on the second floor and the elevator was out. A sign said there was an elevator at the back of the building. I sent my son to check before I made the trip in cold rain. All the doors in the back were locked. I am recovering from hip surgery and stairs are painful. I had to walk up the equivalent of a flight and a half of stairs. The resulting pain put a damper on my evening.
Love this place & staff.
It’s Absolutely Gorgeous There & All The Staff Were Very Kindhearted, Considerate & Respectful, All EXCEPT One Older Very Slim Rude Woman Who Kept Passing Out Event Fliers To Everyone Except Me In Which My Boyfriend & I Noticed Was Strange, Weird & Rude. She’d Give Fliers To My Boyfriend & His Family But She’d Intentionally Skip Over Giving Them To Me (But She’d Give Them To All The Other Women There?!🤷🏽♀️)Which Made Her Look Ignorant Because She’s Black Like Me & We Didn’t Feed Into Her Negative Energy With Those Types Of Childish Games. It Seemed She Was Waiting On Me React Or To Comment Because She’d Ignore Me As If I Didn’t Exist. My Son’s Father Family Members Who Were ALL There Are Hispanic & I Was The ONLY Black Lady Who Did RSVP & Who Was At Invite For His Neice’s 15th Birthday Celebration/Quinceanera’s Formal Occasion; But Out Of All Guests There This Lady With Fliers Decides To Skip Over Only Me. What Was Her Point...She Was The Only Negative & Toxic Type Energy There With That Nasty Mean “Growl” Look On Her Face, For Absolutely No Valid Reason. Everyone Else Working There Were Pleasant, Very Kind, Professional, Had Integrity & Ethics. We Had A Great Time At This Stunningly Adorable & ✨BEAUTIFUL BALLROOM✨
Staff has a very bad attitude. The person that deals with events, Tiffany, needs customer service training.
Great outing and historical Bud Billiken Parade's 90th year.
This place is so beautiful!
I went to a wedding here over the weekend, and I was surprised that I had never been here before!
