Chicago Architect Magazine visits Pilsen's Thalia Hall from AIA Chicago on Vimeo.
If you haven't been out to Pilsen lately, you're missing out on experiencing one of the greatest preservation efforts to happen in the neighborhood - Thalia Hall. Last summer, Empty Bottle owner Bruce Finkelman inked a deal to take over the old bohemian public hall, and it now features a concert venue, a cocktail bar and a restaurant. AIA Chicago recently stopped by for a video tour with Finkelman, who discussed the history, restoration and the rebirth of the landmark space.
