The Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile is slated to open the Reviver bar as a component of the hotel’s completed lobby renovation later this month.

Formerly Rush Bar, Reviver’s opening will complete the hotel’s five-year renovation. The Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile partnered with Chicago-based Whitespace Interiors for the design of Reviver.

Reviver’s seating options will include 28 seats at the bar for lunch, dinner and happy hour. The bar’s seating will extend throughout the lobby—consisting of 172 seats across the communal high-top tables, couches and chairs—and semi-private space known as the “library” that can accommodate up to 50 people reception-style.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


As designed by Whitespace Interiors, Reviver will make use of blue, steel and gold accents to tell the story of how Chicago’s Magnificent Mile transformed into one of the city’s architectural displays.

The property already completed the renovation of the 9,000-square-foot fitness center, 1,200 guest rooms and suites, 65,000 square feet of meeting and event space, as well as the Rush Street Pantry.
