It was built in Chicago, one of the cities in America with the richest architectural history, and it is called Prairie School. The mid-century modern bar design is inspired by one of the most famous architects of all times – Frank Lloyd Wright himself – and it is also the place where you can enjoy some of the most delicious cocktails in all Chicago!

Prairie School, the name of the bar that opened last year in Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood, is a take on the Japanese-inspired aesthetic prairie school. Why? Because this style made the Frank Lloyd Wright popular in the Chicago area during the 20th century.
Even the names of the cocktails served are a fun take on some of the names used by Frank Lloyd Wright to talk about architecture. One of them, a variation on a Brandy Old Fashioned, is called Tall Boxes, a pejorative term the famous architect used to talk about skyscrapers. And, of course, there is the obvious The Falling Water, inspired by Wright’s most famous residence.
As for the interior of this newly iconic bar, you will find several signature elements, such as an art glass window entrance, high-backed Moore & Giles leather couches, modern bar chairs, and a Donald Judd-inspired white oak, rose mirror, and flagstone bar.
