Profile Last Updated: May 15, 2009
A former Baptist church and Polish legion hall, Revival has been transformed into a main source of nightlife along the College Street strip. The high cathedral ceilings and art deco windows frame a décor of exposed brick walls and crushed velvet sofas and drapes. The gothic atmosphere attracts creative types from across the city to regularly scheduled nights and ticketed events. Corporate events and private parties are a Revival specialty, with a main room that provides seating for 120 and additional space in the top balcony lounge and basement.
The main bar is a dominant part of Revival’s design, with countless varieties of beer, cocktails, wines and champagnes poured during each event. Downstairs, the Stone Lounge is particularly conducive to martini sipping from a menu that includes the signature Lychee – made of mandarin vodka, melon liqueur, orange juice and a splash of cranberry. And the kitchen at Revival is just as eclectic as the clientele, specializing in Pan-Asian cuisine, seafood and Italian dishes.
Sensational Sound System
Revival’s live music facilities make it a popular stop for touring and local acts, thanks to a sound system, stage and green room area for performers. Thematic nights place emphasis on certain styles of music, from hip-hop, R&B and house to ‘80s pop, rock and electro. While the cavernous surroundings of Revival has nurtured its own crowd of people looking to see and be seen, The Stone Lounge in the basement features private booths, glass walls, custom-built ottomans, a restored fireplace and classic hardwood floors for a more intimate environment.
