Revel Motor Row, a city landmark rich in Chicago history, has been restored as an event production space to help fuel the resurgence of an iconic neighborhood into a thriving entertainment district. Built in the 1930’s and previously home to the Illinois Automobile Club and the Chicago Defender building, Revel Motor Row provides an impressive backdrop for any vision. Construction is underway to restore the illustrious building to its former glory.

If you want the ultimate day then look no further than Revel/Limelight! Every aspect of our wedding day went smoothly because of the experts at Revel! The details to the design and the execution of how everything turned out was beyond expectations. We postponed due to COVID and every employee we were in contact with over the last two years was nothing short of amazing. The staff was one step ahead of us every step of the way! Special shout out to our producer Lexi, who was attentive, easy to work with, and professional! Thank you!

Amazing Venue and Team!

My husband and I were SO grateful to be married at Revel Motor Row in June 2021. After 2 years of reschedules, COVID issues, changes, and many unexpected events - Revel Motor Row and their whole team, led by Bryn Hoffman, was absolutely amazing, supportive and positive. Bryn was by my side every step of the way and I couldn't recommend her enough to anyone and everyone!! SHE IS TRULY THE BEST. I am forever grateful for this venue and this team for putting together the best day for us.

Hire a lawyer BEFORE you hire Revel Space (Revel Motor Row or Revel Fulton Market).

Our long-planned event could not go forward due to the pandemic and associated government orders. Despite months of notice of that fact, Revel refused to refund the 50% upfront deposit we paid them. At least four Revel Group clients (three wedding sponsors and a corporate event sponsor) so far have sued Revel Space and/or their related companies (Revel Motor Row, Revel Fulton Market, Revel Décor, Limelight Catering, the Revel Group) for keeping tens of thousands of dollars of their deposits. Who knows how many others Revel treated (or will treat) the same way?
