The Standard’s Rooftop Conservatory is the first of its kind in the Chicago Suburbs. On the top story of our facility, our glass conservatory is the most astonishing finishing touch to our breathtaking venue. It is the perfect indoor space for cooler weather to host your ceremony celebration or, can also serve as a post-ceremony space for your guests to enjoy cocktail hour. After dinner, the conservatory is often utilized as a space for dancing and celebration! With exposed brick, ALL natural light, two stunningly beautiful crystal chandeliers, and a marble bar the rooftop conservatory is truly picture perfect!


Even though our facility is packed full with beautiful spaces, this area is definitely our favorite. Sitting atop downtown Rockford it has a front row view to the skyline of the city as well as the Rock River. Two thirds of the space is outside on a rooftop deck, lined with gas lanterns and beautiful string lighting. This rooftop has been used for countless events and parties and is picture perfect for your weddng day. The rest of the space is inside of a one-of-a-kind glass conservatory holding the bar, sound system, tv and restrooms.
