Artifact Events, located in the Architectural Artifacts building in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood, is a mix of traditional brick & timber loft style with a huge four-story atrium and beautiful outdoor courtyard.

With exposed brick walls and timber beams the Ravenswood Room and Loft spaces are perfect for a ceremony and reception with an intimate feel. The incredible four-story glass atrium and metal catwalks offer a one-of-kind spot to share your first kiss or first dance under the market lights. The private outdoor courtyard space offers room for more than 250 seated guests for ceremonies, while the North Side Atrium seats 300 and accommodates up to 500 for cocktail receptions.

With a variety of different space combination you can make your wedding as unique as the items inside Architectural Artifacts. If you’re looking for a one-of-kind loft style venue with a little urban chic mixed in, consider Artifact Events in the heart of Chicago’s historic industrial Ravenswood corridor.

Your guests are sure to be wowed by this remarkable space. Contact Christine at Artifact Events for more details!
