Our Rich History

Mae District's storied past began in the late 1800's when the building was constructed by the Chicago Illuminating Company. Later occupied by Al Capone and his crew, Mae District saw the likes of the infamous gang's target practice in the upstairs shooting range. One of Capone’s many speakeasies was even located just across the alleyway. Hosting a rich, unique history that simply can't be manufactured, our venue is truly one of a kind.
