    Simply Elegant

    I loved working with Ashley throughout my entire planning process. I’ve been in contact with Ashley well before I decided to book the venue. I was back and forth with Room 1520 & another similar venue, but hands down I feel like I made the right decision in the end. I love the white exposed bricks with the chandelier, which was a classy touch. You don’t have to do much with the space because it’s naturally beautiful and that was less work on my planner. The bridal suite is huge and gorgeous! And I loved how we were able to take pictures on the rooftop, which in my opinion are money shots! My only problem with Room 1520 was with the sound system along with the projector. We were unable to play our slideshow during the ceremony 😞 But really other than Room 1520 is a great & unique spot to host an event!

    Flexible, Responsive, Gorgeous

    Once I walked in to Room 1520 I knew I HAD to have our wedding there. We ended up pushing our wedding date back a year because of COVID and they were flexible and accommodating. We did the All In Package and it was 100% worth it. Our vendor team gave 1520 rave reviews, most saying it is one of their favorite venues to work with and I can see why. Ashley was a complete rockstar and was there every step of the way including the day of where she worked her butt off (and even tended bar!). Our guests found the space to be 'magical' and we got so many compliments on finding a 'hidden gem'. Don't sleep on this venue - it is one of a kind!

What a great venue for a wedding! As president of Fourth Estate Audio, I've been privileged to provide professional DJ entertainment at Room 1520 many times. And I am consistently impressed with the personal attention each client, guest and vendor receives. As a simple, intimate, all-white room, it's extraordinarily flexible, and the perfect place for couples who want to add their own personal decor and coloring without clashing with anything. Here's a gallery of a recent wedding we did at Room 1520: https://www.pinterest.com/chicagodjlights/angelica-patrick-bermudez-real-chicago-wedding/. A big thumbs-up for Room 1520!
