The Quarry is South Shore’s Premier Event Space
Discover the gem of Chicago’s South Side! The Quarry is owned by the social enterprise created by Real Men Charities Inc. That entity, Real Community Investment Group purchased The Quarry in July 2018 after managing the venue since January. Our mission follows.
To be the hub around which South Shore gathers to experience itself as a positive, safe, powerful, resource-rich, connected, community, worthy of living and staying in Chicago.
To be a place that will attract culinary and health-related entrepreneurs and artists seeking affordable, flexible space to anchor their work, learn, grow, and connect with resources and meet potential clients and like-minded others.
To be a place in their own neighborhood where local community residents, their children, families, and friends as well as churches and neighborhood-based organizations can hold their celebrations, programs, weddings, repasts, reunion events, meetings, training, and many other events that they now have to go way across town to do.
