It’s the corner of Orleans and Hill, but we like to think of it as the intersection of Wonder and Wander.

Inside our reimagined Mid-century schoolhouse, you might discover an 18th-century chandelier; or roam until you find a perfect 1920s doorknob that fits your hand like they were made for each other. You might discover your new favorite natural wine, grab a slice of incredible pizza, join a pickleball game, resurrect Sunday brunch, make new friends, impress old ones, level-up date night — and if that works out, find your future wedding venue, too.

How do we get all that into one destination? We had a head start: In case you’re wondering, yep, we’re that Architectural Artifacts, home to Stuart Grannen, Chicago’s Patron Saint of Salvage and his ever-evolving collection of some of the world’s most incredible finds. When we say that Stuart’s latest chapter is like nothing you’ve ever seen, we mean it.

We invite you to come in and get lost (with a delicious drink in hand); or get found, by joining one of our events or hosting one of your own. If you love fascinating backstories, amazing food and good company as much as we do, we can’t wait to get to know you.
