The private showroom space is one of four separate suites inside of a rehabbed 1900's grocery store in Logan Square. The open floor plan and attached courtyard is ideal for creative pursuits such as film and photo shoots or chef/beverage product introductions. Large floor to ceiling windows provides fantastic natural light. Exposed brick and steel beam running through courtyard and space provides architectural interest. Walking distance to some great restaurants/lounges (Fat Rice, Cellar Door Provisions, Masa Azul, Reno, Lost Lake, Mi Tocaya Antojeria, Longman & Eagle, Dill Pickle Food Coop). There is a private entrance, on a quiet side street, that opens into a hallway leading to the space and a basement. The entry hallway is a perfect spot to store equipment and staging gear, as is the garage. The garage off the alley, and double doors leading from the garage to the courtyard, makes for easy load-in and move out. The space consists of an open kitchen, living and dining area, master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a second full bath. We recently received a Historic Preservation Award for the newly rehabbed building (2017) and it has been featured in Dwell, Curbed House Calls, Dezeen Architecture & Design Magazine, and ArchDaily. It will also be included as a featured space during Open House Chicago, 2018.
While we love a good soiree, the space isn't available for events or celebrations that require food/beverage/catering. Film, video and photo production activity is more fitting.

Laura and Matt were wonderful hosts–very accommodating to all our requests and fun to see each day. They were very hands-off but always available to answer our questions. The success of our shoot was partly due to their hospitality and beautiful space!
Laura was an amazing host. We used it for a video shoot. This space is beautiful, especially if you can appreciate great architecture and design. Would highly recommend.
