The Everleigh Social Club is a private club in Chicago’s West Loop that hosts social gatherings and supports art and the art of living. We continue the tradition of the great “artist and model clubs” of the 18th and 19th Centuries. Our members are an intriguing mix of people that celebrate the gift of art and its influence on living a decadent life, but you don’t have to be an artist to join.
A playground for artists, models and those that live artfully…
We regularly host events, parties, dinners, lectures, holidays and salons as well as “field trips” and destination vacations. We also have weekly artist gatherings and figure drawing nights that foster the relationship between technical mastery and sensual beauty.
We call ourselves The Everleigh Social Club to honor an opulent brothel that operated in Chicago from 1900-1911. Ada and Minna Everleigh, the madams that presided over it, were purveyors of sensuality and patrons of art. We endeavor to pay homage to their legacy.
Membership is open to artists (of any discipline), models and those who treat living as an art (you don’t have to be an artist to join). There are several levels of membership available and we invite you to explore those options. For more information click here.
