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 are no servers or bartenders in this private bar that feels like an extension of your own home. Members can enjoy a drink or entertain guests without the hassle, expense, or frustration of a bar. A stark contrast to traditional stuffy private clubs and overcrowded bars, Birch Road Cellar is a community space that attracts members from all over the city who are seeking a quieter space to enjoy a good drink and good conversation.
