Nitti’s Supper Club
Long before 33 W. Kinzie housed one of Chicago’s most famous steakhouses, it was home to the notorious enforcer of the Al Capone gang, Frank Nitti. He lived in an apartment on the fourth floor with his wife Annette. They operated a legitimate Italian food business, Caravetta Foods, out of the building. But it was also a convenient hideout for Nitti as the courthouse building was clearly visible from the apartment. The building connected to Chicago’s underground tunnel system allowing Nitti and his associates to come and go without being seen on the streets.
Nitti’s Supper Club and Speakeasy incorporates real characters from Nitti’s life of crime who would have walked through the doors of 33 West Kinzie. Join them on a trip back in time to the raucous world of gangland Chicago.
