Speakeasy Event

Chicago is an International hub for art. After years of soul searching I created an artistic hub of my own. 19art81, is proud to present Speakeasy Poetry & Storytime. This event is a combination of visual and spoken word art.

This is a casual event, and we've put a lot of effort in the decor, atmosphere, and the talent involved. The artists in the show span from contemporary works to new media. With so much in between including poetry!

Join us for drinks, food, and amazing raffled off prizes (all of that awesomeness is included in your ticket). We have some special giveaways including one from Chicago's very own Koval Distillery. We even have an International brand, Bai providing some deliciously refreshing beverages. There is much more to list off, but some things are better left unsaid. How about you come by and see? I say, yes. 

Ya know we needed to do some good,too! So we have chosen an organization that is near and dear to donate to. Half of our ticket sales will go to: Autism Speaks in Chicago. Bonus I asked a rep to come down and to collect on their behalf. I am so excited to be working with such a great organization. We hope you are, too!

Are you interested in being a part of this epic artistic event?
