Fine Arts Building

Arts Center in The Loop

This building has been an artists' haven for more than a century. You'll still hear opera voices and trumpet music drift out of the music studios, which sit alongside workshops for violin makers, an old sheet-music store, an excellent bookstore and even an escape room and an axe-throwing club. Take the vintage elevator – the last one in the city operated manually by an attendant – up to the 10th floor for a quirky exploration on your way back down.
