It takes a lot to thrive in a competitive & demanding marketplace. In 2007, there were a few unique loft & warehouse event spaces in Chicago. Today, there are more than fifty. In 2007, REC took a unique approach by providing on-site catering & event planning services all under the roof a fully renovated print warehouse & production space. Now, our approach has become the model of independent event service in Chicago
What keeps REC relevant and in demand is that we never stop evolving and we never stop getting better. While the classic elements of service & style never go out of fashion - REC embraces modern & global influences in crafting menus and unique event experiences.
Most frequently used for wedding ceremonies, corporate receptions and a dancing lounge. The Atrium can seat 200+ for ceremonies, 100 for a seated dinner and 150+ for cocktail receptions.
The Loft is pure Chicago. Vintage pine & oak, brick, concrete and glass come together to make for intimate yet accommodating space for farm-to-table wedding dinners, Sunday brunch parties and spirited cocktail receptions. The Loft can fully seat 180 and up to 250 cocktail style.
