As the description on the venue’s website notes,
Previously an old steel factory, the space has been transformed into a modern artistic venue, showcasing mural work by local and international artists and equipped with stunning light fixtures to highlight the uniqueness of the venue. Radius utilized the open floor plan of the building to produce an exploratory experience for guests, where they can flow between the various areas, creative photo opts, and change their viewpoint by ascending to the mezzanine level.
In addition, located within Radius will be a 10,000 square foot multi-purpose event space called Cermak Hall. This space will have a capacity of 1,350 guests, its own entrance, a full bar, and a stage. Cermak Hall will also be used as a pre- and post-event space.
