First Tuesday Happy Hour at The Boarding House

Please join the Young Architects Forum, together with AIA's Historic Resources Knowledge Community, at The Boarding House in River North!

The Boarding House is a new bar and restaurant brought to us by Chicago's own Alpana Singh (Master Sommelier and host of the PBS television show, Check, Please!). The Boarding House is located in a building built in 1872 shortly after the Great Chicago Fire. Chicago History Museum records revealed that the original owner of the building operated a dry goods store on the first floor and rented the upstairs to boarders. In subsequent decades, the first floor was also a cheese company, saloon, tobacconist's shop, a shot and beer pub, and even a laboratory. The upstairs continued to function as a residential space until 1988, when the building was transformed into a nightclub. A series of nightclubs came and went but turning the space into a restaurant was a first.

We hope to see you there!
