Melanie Mackey has served as the Event Coordinator for the Iowa Taproom since 2018. Iowa Taproom features two private dining rooms that are great for hosting weddings, receptions, corporate parties, and holiday events.
Melanie's favorite part of event planning is taking care of stressful tasks so her clients can focus on celebrating! She considers herself the ultimate wedding hype gal and definitely doesn't have her own extremely detailed vision board for her own wedding someday.

The Apollo Chorus is an institution of the Chicago music scene since 1872 and has performed with Josh Groban, on Netflix's "Sense8", Macy's Thanksgiving Parades in Chicago, and gives concerts year round in some of Chicago's premier venues with esteemed ensembles such as the CSO and the Chicago Opera Theatre Company.
Their annual performances of Handel's Messiah are a holiday tradition for many Chicagoans, and is the longest running annual production of the masterwork in Chicago.
The Apollo After Hours event is a bit of a diversion from their normal programming, and gives individual performers the chance to take the stage in more of a 'cabaret' setting.
DJs and musicians, planners and swag, catering and AV. We're talking about it all.
