Marrakesh Room

166-2 Ars Politica


Folks who’ve been around Chicago for a while, which is to say since around the turn of the century, will remember the HotHouse, a great south of Loop venue for radical politics and the arts. Since it closed in 2007, they’ve been working on finding the money for a new home while sponsoring cultural and political events at third party sites. The latest development is an agreement with the Alhambra Palace Restaurant for a series of “world music” events (and more) starting in the fall:

HotHouse has been contracted to develop the Alhambra Palace Restaurant into a new stage for World Music and Global Culture.

This fall HotHouse will be launching a new performing arts and culture series in the beautiful and centrally located Alhambra Palace Restaurant.

At Alhambra, HotHouse will be building a seasonal series on the main stage to showcase the important artists and voices seldom presented in Chicago — particularly from Africa and the Middle East. In the Marrakesh room on the second floor, we will be providing a new home for emerging cultural expression and a gathering space for grassroots organizers from communities around the region. Please look out for a CALL FOR PROPOSALS TO BE ISSUED SOON. We are seeking original projects to present in these beautiful spaces.
