Prospective members are welcome to request a preview of the speakeasy during our regular business hours. Let us know when you'd like to request a reservation for your first preview and we'll confirm the time if we have availability. Please let us know the date, time, and size of your party requested. Below is some additional information about our establishment which you’ll want to read over. It includes information about our membership, dress code, reservations, and other policies. I look forward to hearing from you!
Room 13 is the Old Chicago Inn's very own private Prohibition-era inspired speakeasy. A 21+ venue, prospective members can apply for a membership by filling out an application and turning it in to the evening's bartender during their second preview. If selected to be a member at Room 13, members gain access to the speakeasy on a weekly basis. At Room 13 we do suggest proper dress. We ask our guests to follow a cocktail & business casual model. Gentlemen are asked to wear some sort of collar (jacket, button-up, etc); nice denim is acceptable (no wear and tear); no athletic wear. We reserve the right to refuse entry if we deem someone underdressed for the occasion. Members may bring up to a total party of four on any regular evening. Should you wish to bring more guests you may do so with prior approval of the management. Reservations are strongly encouraged as seating is not guaranteed without. Contact for cancellations, late reservations, and changes of party size are always appreciated.
On occasion we may host private events or special concerts in Room 13. In those cases you will be notified by email should Room 13 be closed to the public or hosting an event that requires reservations, tickets, or covers. The club is password protected; we do change the password regularly, so please stay in touch with us via email for password updates. We ask that guests guard the password's secrecy.
Room 13 is available for private receptions, meetings, and events seven days a week.
