Located in Chicago’s Wicker Park, The Bedford recently reclaimed an historic private bank from 1926 and transformed the place into an incredible supper club. The 8,000-square foot (743 sq. m) lower-level space features terracotta, marble and terrazzo, all reclaimed and restored from the original bank.

Oh and it has one of the coolest VIP lounges the Sifter has seen. Located inside the vault room, the walls are lined with more than 6,000 working copper lock boxes. Check out the pics below of this fascinating space. The lighting and interior design really give this place a great nostalgic feel. A truly unique experience in one of America’s most amazing cities!
