ABOUT REVIVAL FOOD HALL
The massive 24,000 square-foot project, located in on the ground floor of the Daniel Burnham building, “The National,” gathers local artisan foods from Chicago neighborhoods to bring more heart and soul to the Loop dining scene. Spotlighting the best of the Chicago chef-driven concepts under one roof, the hall will have everything from a multi-roaster coffeeshop and cocktail bar, to pizza by Union Pizza, tacos by Antique Taco, handmade ramen by Furious Spoon, and more: a 43-foot communal table and plenty of banquettes, and window seating for fast-casual dining.
The food hall’s furniture, fixtures, metalwork and more are crafted by local artisans, and the Adams Street entrance will feature curated rotating art exhibit featuring the city’s artists. The 16” On Center space will also include a record store and reading corner featuring books and records for retail sale by Chicago’s own small, independent record labels and publishers.
The building, originally home of the The Commercial National Bank of Chicago, (and soon to be home to the new Paper Source headquarters and four floors of WeWork’s shared office space) retains two of its original bank vaults in the basement, and boasts a mid-century lounge with outdoor patio on the sixth floor, all available for events which can be conveniently catered by Revival Food Hall vendors.
