This independent experimental library has been used as a location for scenes as a coffeeshop, apartment, and (of course) a library, as well as staging areas for cast, crew and craft service during outdoor shoots in and around Humboldt Park. In the Reading Room, you'll be surrounded by the most eclectic collection of Chicago-crafted books, newspapers, magazines, comics, zines, artist books, journals, plans, novels, chapbooks, and cookbooks. The 600 square foot Reading Room has been called “cozy and welcoming” by the Chicago Reader, and yet is very flexible with chairs and tables that fold and a ramp for easy equipment load-in. The 1,000 square foot Exhibition Room (in the process of being photographed) is adjacent and has access both from outside and through the Reading Room. This room is a combination of dark turquoise walls, exposed brick, and glass block, with dark carpeting. It also has an exposed beam timber ceiling, as well as flexible furnishings and a moveable stage.

Disadvantages

  • Unfavorable weather

  • Bad traffic
    Most of the rooftop venues in Chicago are located in the heart of the Loop district, which is renowned for its notorious traffic at peak hours.
  • Parking is difficult

  • Safety
    Chicago does have a relatively high crime rate.
  • Access
    While most rooftop venues in Chicago have elevators, some will only be accessible by stairs, making it difficult for people with limited mobility.

  • The Loop
    Home to the 108-story Willis Tower and some of the city’s most famous architectural icons, The Loop is the vibrant heart of Chicago. It’s where many of the most impressive rooftop venues in Chicago are located, several of which take advantage of the spectacular cityscape views.

  • Buckingham Fountain
