Exterior and interior shots of The Ivanhoe, a once extremely popular restaurant, cabaret and bar at the corner of Clark and Wellington, 1952, Chicago.

Originally opened as a speakeasy in the 1920’s, it’s had many lives over the last 90 years. You’ll recognize it now as Binny’s Beverage Depot.

I have always wondered why it looked like a castle. This is awesome!
