Room 1520 is located in the heart of the artistic West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. Our venue is a spacious, restored historical gear factory loft building with high ceilings, polished cement floors, portrait windows, exposed brick, private street entrances and many amenities.

Room 1520 is different from other loft venues in the city. It is elegant, airy, bright and accented by Italian crystal chandeliers and an artisan staircase in the grand entrance.

The dramatic foyer and staircase lead up to a versatile great room. The great room is adorned with 11-foot ceilings, Italian crystal chandeliers and large, stunning restrooms. The space totals 4,000 sq. ft. and is a bright, white, blank slate that can be transformed into the perfect setting for any type of gathering from weddings, corporate to social events. There is space enough for a dance floor and dinner service.

Come in and see why Room 1520 has developed a glowing reputation in both the corporate and social events industry. Read less

What a wonderful experience we had at 1520! Everything from the the moment we walked into our wedding day. Everything was perfect! Celeste and our vendors made what could be a stressful experience easy and fun! The venue, lighting, tables, chairs everything is perfect. Thanks for helping make our day perfect!

I'm extremely happy that we chose Room 1520 for our big day. The space was amazing and easily transformed into the look I wanted. I highly recommend Celeste and her team for any event at Room 1520!

BOOK THIS VENUE!
Seriously. Right now. Stop looking around and book Room1520. NOW!

We got married here on 8/6/16 and could not have executed a more perfect evening. The space is amazing and unique. And like the reviews say, "a blank canvas to do with what you want." We looked at a few other venues similar to Room1520, but when we put them against one another there was no question who to partner with. We did both our wedding ceremony and reception here. My wife was originally a little worried about having to take on all the extra pieces of planning a wedding at a place like this, versus a hall that pretty much does everything for you, but after meeting with Celeste for the first time, all of her concerns were quickly erased. She explained everything to us and even gave us a sheet of their preferred vendors to partner with. It was a HUGE help!

Celeste is a gem - friendly, knowledgable, super accommodating and makes you feel like you've been best friends since birth. Cannot even begin to thank her enough for everything.

Other places charge for (or don't offer) tables, chairs, up lighting or sofas. Room1520 provides these within your package. It's so nice to have one less thing to worry about.

You are however, responsible for catering (linen, cups, dishes, etc), decor, music and booze. But as mentioned above, Room1520 has a list to help with that (if you need it). It's not just a name or two in each category either. They provide options that fit within all price points. It was so easy.

So if you're looking for a perfect wedding, in a beautiful event space, with world class professionals to partner with, I think you've found it at 1520.

Celeste and Room 1520 couldn't have been easier to work with from our first conversation through the wedding day. They were flexible, organized, and accommodating. Not to mention the venue itself is stunning...simple, elegant, and the best bridal suite in the city. We also loved how we were the only wedding couple we saw all day (very private). No need to look anywhere else!

My husband and I recently got married at Room 1520, and we could not have picked a better venue. Celeste, I cannot thank you enough for being so accommodating with my crazy schedule to come in for walk throughs, day before drop offs, and even for our wedding cake!

When we first visited the venue, Celeste's willingness to allow us to visit way after business hours, already won us over. When we walked in, the chandeliers, to the huge bridal suite, to the gorgeous bar space, I was in awe. She even allowed us to do pictures and our first look on the rooftop!

The venue comes with the column uplighting, the chandeliers, the chairs, the lounge furniture, etc etc etc. Chair rental and lounge furniture rental is expensive, soon to be brides!

The day before the wedding, I, like most brides was in a frantic trying to drop everything off prior to rehearsal. When it came time for rehearsal, because most of our wedding party was traveling from out of town, most were running late, which meant Celeste had to stay much later than intended. Thank you!

The day of the wedding, my makeup artists asked to start at 7am, which meant Celeste had to be there by 645am. Thank you, again!

Honestly, I cannot be more grateful to have worked with such a wonderful and nice person! She could have just told me, no, and I would have had to figure another way out myself. Thank you for providing such an amazing space for our wedding and thank you for being so accommodating!

I LOVE ROOM 1520! I was SO pleased with my wedding reception at this venue. Everyone was such a great help, and went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. Celeste was super accommodating (even waking up at 6:30am to open the bridal suite for us!) and so sweet through the entire process. The room itself is stunning so any decorations are just bonuses. I can't imagine the night having taken place anywhere else, and wouldn't have changed a thing!

Not only does Room 1520 give the best value (tables, chairs, lounge furniture and more were included in their price) but the people working there are fantastic and helpful. About 2 weeks before the wedding the girl we had been working with left and we got freaked out, but her replacement was nothing but kind and helpful and everything went off without a problem. We had a Friday wedding so they let us spend the whole day Thursday setting up. We did all our flowers and decorations by ourselves and it would have been almost impossible without Room 1520's flexibility to get in early. As long as they don't have an event the day before, they are so accommodating! The venue is beautiful and they made our day absolutely perfect.

Haley and the Room 1520 team were amazing to work with. I fell in love with the venue as soon as I walked in and I truly appreciated the organized initial meeting and walk through. The venue was a great value considering the amenities offered (furniture rental, a beautiful bar that was recently built in the space, parking, security guard, ability to have the rehearsal there, roof top access for photos, lighting options, chandeliers, a huge bridal suite, etc.) All of our vendors also enjoy working events at the space and had great things to say about it. It was a perfect space for our wedding ceremony and reception with seated dinner - it offers some beautiful natural light, plenty of space and the ability to transform it. I can't say enough good things about Room 1520 and would highly recommend it to other brides/event planners in Chicago!
