All Birch Road Cellar tours have reached capacity and RSVPs are now closed

Hidden in plain sight and accessible only by fingerprint scan, this spacious former photo studio has been transformed into the first BYO private club. Members can stop by to enjoy this cozy home-away-from-home whenever they'd like. Its lounge and tasting room are a relaxed alternative to stuffy private clubs and overcrowded bars. A climate-controlled cellar allows guests to store their own private wine and spirits, since the club operates on a "bring your own beverage" model.

Behind the Scenes

Bypass the fingerprint scanner for a unique opportunity to visit one of Chicago's most secret clubs, where members escape the bustle of Lincoln Park.

Due to space constraints and security concerns, all visitors to this site must register in advance and bring a valid photo ID. Address emailed to registered guests only. Tours open to ages 21 and older.
