Beautiful wedding venue and awesome service!

We got married at Room 1520 in October 2016. We worked with Celeste from start to finish. She is extremely professional and passionate about making sure you have a fabulous wedding. She consistently answered all our questions, we worked with her to design the space, she let us come early the day of the wedding to use the bridal suite to get ready, and she worked directly with all our vendors (they all know and love her, so it makes everything easier!).

We had about 160 guests and had a half sit-down/half cocktail style reception. It was the perfect size space. The bar is so gorgeous and large, no one had to wait for drinks and it never felt crowded. You can add a lot of decorations if you want, but we just went with white tablecloths, the clear chairs, and simple candles, and it was so beautiful. The uplighting and chandeliers make the crisp white space glow in the evening. We used the rooftop for our first look and some bridal party pictures. Great view of the city and very private. Our guests all loved the venue as much as we did. At the end of the night we walked a block down the street to the Cobra Lounge for an after-party, it was super convenient and since it was so close a lot of people joined, perfect place to end the night!

We viewed about 12 other venues in the city and nothing compared to the unique style, the value, the service, and the flexibility that Room 1520 offers. We are so grateful we found this spot and highly recommend it!

I loved Room 1520. I loved how unique the space was and how I could really make it my own. I had a lot of guests ask me "How did you ever find this place??" because they thought it was gorgeous (the answer is that I googled "cool places to get married in Chicago"). The bridal suite is amazing, and the built-in bar is terrific. Celeste was great to work with and was very helpful when I had questions about vendors. Book it, you won't be disappointed!

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.
