Tucked away among the fitness studios and boutiques of Armitage Avenue is a secret private wine club. Formerly a photography studio, and never open to the public, Birch Road Cellar is hidden in plain sight and accessible only via fingerprint scan. This spacious, loft-like space is the first BYOB private club in Chicago. There is no restaurant or bar, just a beautiful tasting room and lounge where members can entertain guests or enjoy a drink. A stark contrast to traditional stuffy private clubs and overcrowded bars, Birch Road Cellar is a community space for members.

Behind the Scenes

Take a tour of this hidden club and its temperature-controlled wine cellar, and meet the founders, during Open House Chicago.
