Beautiful venue for a wedding. Everything looked exquisite. Staff was wonderful to work with and took care of all are needs, to make it a wonderful day!!
We are a Chicago based catering company and work around many different venues every weekend. Room 1520 is a great place to cater and to host your event. The staff is super friendly and attentive to details, the place is always clean no matter what day of the day you visit and it has plenty of weekend free street parking something that is rare in the city! Don't hesitate to take a look at the space it's a blank canvas that fits all your events needs and decor ideas! More...
Highly recommend having your wedding at Room 1520! The space and bar is gorgeous and they are so flexible with making your vision work! Ashley and Celeste are so nice and professional and so easy to work with. They have a great alcohol selection and will work with you to get whatever signature cocktail or beer/wine you want! More...
Room 1520 is a blank canvas for any kind of wedding you would like to have! They have a gorgeous roomy bridal suite with on suite bathroom. The bar is amazing! Celeste is so helpful and nice. She really took the time to answer all of my thousands of questions! I am happy that the furniture, tables, and lighting are all included! There is also a rooftop to take great photos with the Chicago skyline in the background. I will definately be booking my wedding here in 2021! More...
Room 1520 was beautiful! I attended a wedding here, and was very impressed with everything. I wondered how it would work only having 1 room for everything, but man oh man did the staff get the transition done quickly and to perfection. The bar had great choices, along with a delicous red blend. My mother turns 60 this year, and I think we are going to look into hosting her party here! More...
My sister got married here last year and it was the absolute best venue I've ever been to. I worked closely with Ashley M. and she was a ray of sunshine! Ashley was knowledgeable, responsive, friendly, and was super on-top of everything my big sis needed! The decor was amazing, the space was clean and classy, the packages they offered were fair, and I plan to have my reception here (once I get engaged of course). All in all my sister had the best wedding reception ever and we owe it all to Room 1520! More...
The space was beautiful. The staff were great, beyond friendly, super helpful and knowledgeable. I loved the atmosphere. They have unique velvet furniture and gorgeous chandeliers. I would recommend to everyone! More...
Fantastic venue with an elegant space. The staff made sure our special night went perfectly smoothly. The best venue in Chicago to host a wedding!
Ashley and Celeste were so helpful and accommodating which really made things so much easier when hosting an event. The food was amazing, the full bar had all the options, and the space is absolutely beautiful! I’m totally hosting another party here! More...
The space is wonderful and has so many amenities like a separate entrance for guest ,a bridal suite along with a tucked away section outside for the groom to have cigars and brandy. The built in bar is a marvelous touch and there are so many things to do with the open floor plan and to top it off is the rooftop view with the downtown skyline as a back drop. More...
We had our ceremony and reception in Feb 2018 at Room1520 and absolutely loved it. We also used Nicole as our DOC, and her and Celeste were both so responsive, accommodating and just overall great to work with. During our initial walk through we loved the space, but it all looked even better than imagined on the actual wedding day.
So much equipment was recently upgraded, including chairs, bar equipment, décor and couches/lounge furniture. There were also so many options available for us to customize to our own tastes including tons of uplighting colors, chairs (rustic vs more formal), tables (shape and size) and layout. The bar is built-in, very elegant looking and extremely wide so many guests were able to go to the bar without crowding the room. The main room had plenty of space for people to dance, but there was also convenient areas near the front of the space to walk away for more private conversations. Parking was extremely convenient, and even though there was a big snow storm leading up to the wedding none of our guests had trouble finding the venue or parking nearby. There are a ton of preferred vendor options who are all super familiar and experienced with the venue. We got so many compliments from our guests, and even first time vendors, at how beautiful the venue looked and general flow of the rooms.
Also, we did a lot of research and Celeste gives really good value in terms of pricing. Highly recommend Room1520! More...
Room 1520 was our dream venue! It gave us everything we wanted and more. Book them for your upcoming wedding!
We had such an amazing experience at Room 1520! The staff are wonderful, and everything went very smoothly on our special day. Thanks, Room 1520!!!
Very nice venue. This venue was nice and clean which is a plus.
Shooting a wedding here today as the couples Photographer and everyone is SOOO NICE and the space is ah-may-zing. I can't wait to recommend this gem.
Had our wedding here two weeks ago and it was gorgeous! Our event was held in the afternoon so we got some great lighting and all our guests loved the look of the space!

This venue was amazing and Celeste & team were so great to work with. I would recommend them to anyone, the venue is beautiful.
Celeste and the team at Room 1520 are wonderful! They worked with us to create a beautiful fashion show that our supporters are still talking about almost a year later.
? We love photographing weddings at Room 1520. The space is an amazing combination of elegant and urban. Our favorite white loft wedding venue in Chicago.
We had our staff Christmas Party here it is a Beautiful Place I would recommend for others to have there event here. I found it to be a very relaxing and cozy atmosphere. I had a great experience and wonderful time. More...

Easily my favorite venue in Chicago. The space is beautiful and can be decorated any way you want! It is such a blank canvas. Celeste is incredible and very responsive. I highly recommend it :) More...
DJ'd at this Venue this past Friday and was one of the coolest Wedding Venues I have ever performed at. We completely transformed that room. I am now recommending this venue to all my future wedding clients. More...
Just went to a wedding at Room 1520 last night and I was thoroughly impressed. The turn around time that it took them to transform the room from a "ceremony" setting to an elegant banquet hall was very impressive. Definitely recommend it!

A beautiful blank slate to make your event whatever you want it to be. We got married there in October 2016 and everything went very smoothly. Celeste is great to work with and lots of my guests asked me how I found such a great space. I would highly recommend. More...
My wife and I got married here in April and it was absolutely wonderful! The first time we took a tour of Room 1520 we just knew this is where we wanted to get married. The space was just perfect for our wedding of about 90 guests (though you could easily fit more depending on your own layout.. but we wanted to keep it under 100 and do long farm style tables). Not only is the space clean, modern, and romantic during the day, but once the sun goes down it's even more beautiful! The lighting that Room 1520 includes with their space is not just one or two measly lights here and there that some venues try to pass as up-lighting. No, Room 1520 means it when they say up-lighting is included. The up-lighting that is included did so much for the space that we didn't have to pay extra with our DJ or through another company. It was absolutely stunning. Our only complaint about the night is that it was a little warm in the venue and we couldn't seem to get the place to cool down (but this could also be due to dancing and drinking!).
In addition to having a beautiful venue if you book with Room 1520 you also get to know Celeste who was beyond phenomenal. It's difficult to put into words just how wonderful she is. We visited a few venues before Room 1520 but we had not met anyone quite as nice, welcoming, accommodating, caring and down to earth as Celeste when we were viewing other venues. Honestly, having her on our team was priceless. Wedding planning is stressful enough as it is, but Celeste made sure that worrying about our venue was not something we had to do. She constantly made sure she was checking in with us throughout the process to see if we needed help or had questions about anything (not just venue related), she gave us resources for our (pretty) limited budget and helped us stay where we needed to be price wise by giving us different resources and companies to look into. And then on the day she even showed up with a few extra goodies that she did not have to do but did anyways. It's the little things like this that go a LONG way on your big day. When it comes to your wedding day, you really want to have all the right people on your side who have taken the time to get to know you, can vouch for your vision, and believe in you and that is exactly what Celeste was for us!

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! More...
I couldn't have been more pleased with Room 1520 for our wedding. Everything turned out perfect and Celeste was amazing to work with during the whole process. The space is just beautiful, photographs like a dream, and you can really do anything you want with the space! The bridal suite was a huge plus and the perfect place to get ready and also a great spot to take a moment away from the craziness. I would recommend this venue to anyone! More...
Nice venue, visited for a benefit and was impressed with the building. Very clean and well decorated. Bar was well stocked and staff were all very friendly.
You would be crazy not to book an event at Room 1520!!! The atmosphere is beautiful and Celeste is one of a kind. From the first time meeting her, I knew i wanted to have my wedding here. She is understanding, patient, genuine, and so knowledgeable. I am beyond blessed for her and this venue. If you are looking ... Pick Room 1520 for a magical destination and Celeste to be basically your fairy godmother for planning needs. Thanks soooo much! More...
Attended a wedding here. Great venue, easy to customize.
Celeste and the team at Room 1520 have been a pleasure to work with. They are very organized, flexible and have put together an incredible space for events. Would highly recommend to anyone who is considering... More...
Cool venue, was there recently for a wedding. Did a photo shoot there and ceremony and reception. Great place for a small wedding. Occupancy is 149. Everything was really neat. Ac was on blast and never felt warm for one second. Loved the vibe and atmosphere. Pictures at sunset look amazing with the Chicago city backdrop More...
I had my wedding reception here this past May and had a wonderful experience! Aesthetic wise, this venue had the minimalist feel that we were going for and is absolutely stunning. Everyone was commenting on how beautiful and unique it was. Celeste was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process and was more than accommodating with our many visits to the venue (and a last minute ice cream cart!). Her calm demeanor eliminated any nerves I otherwise may have had, with her providing wedding day advice outside of just the venue on many occasions. I highly recommend! More...
