close encounters

Step through the front door of one of Chicago’s choicest architectural feats. Sip a craft beer brewed for one night only from a 19th-century recipe. Listen to sublime music not from a seat, but perched in front of an easel.

This is our CLOSE ENCOUNTERS series: exclusive, intimate, unforgettable concert events connecting listeners with the music and its cultural moment through art, architecture, cuisine, and for the first in the series, which takes place just days before Halloween, a turn-of-the-century-themed costumed soirée at the Downey Mansion.
