It was designed to replicate a Spanish palace courtyard with its crystal chandeliers, mosaic tiles, garishly painted plaster, terra-cotta ceiling and beautiful arches. The shiny bent wood floor was created for dancing and rests on a cushion of cork, felt and springs. It appears to be a palace of illusions, where artificial stars twinkle overhead and projectors beam clouds scudding across the domed roof some 60 feet above the dance floor. Even the “wooden” beams located throughout the venue are make-believe (simulated from concrete). LO C AT I O N

Studio Manarchy was originally built in the 1890’s as a maple syrup factory. It is rumored that in the 20’s Al Capone used the building as a speakeasy and gin mill. During the 50’s it was a chop shop. In 1980, the building was renovated by Dennis Manarchy, designed to respect and preserve the presence of historic Chicago industrial architecture. The clock was custom made for the building as a homage to Chicago’s great buildings with their iconic clocks. LO C AT I O N
