A Venue With History

Whether you are a native to Chicago or are just visiting for your photo shoot, you want it to be at a special place you will remember forever. 19 East has a history that dates back over 100 years. The building was constructed in the late 1800s as a warehouse and was later used by the famed Chicago gangster Al Capone. In fact, a tunnel leading into the building was later discovered that is presumed to have been used to transport alcohol during Prohibition. The facility later became a tire manufacturing site, then a taxi company headquarters. Food For Thought acquired it in 2014, and has been hosting events of all kind ever since.
