Towers Meeting

Casino and Speakeasy Meetings & Events Space on the 14th Penthouse Floor of the Millennium Knickerbocker Chicago

163 E Walton Pl
Chicago, illnois 60611

  • Neighborhood: Downtown Chicago, Michigan Avenue
  • Description: When the stock market plummeted and prohibition reigned, Al Capone’s brother Ralph operated a casino and speakeasy on the 14th Penthouse Floor. Since access needed to be controlled, only one of the hotel’s three passenger elevators was able to reach the top, where the illegal rooms were found. Adding some credibility to this story of connections to a shady underworld was a secret door leading to a stairway, which was discovered during a 1980s remodeling. There is an old telephone booth present on this floor as well that was where they would get the call that the police had arrived. This would alert to everyone to escape down the secret staircase, visible today
