Finding the studio
The studio is located at 4201 N. Ravenswood Ave. We’re inside the century-old Deagan Building in Ravenswood, Chicago. There are two Ravenswood Ave’s that run parallel to each other, the studio is on the East side at the corner of Ravenswood and Berteau.
You won't see a sign at all, just look for this building. The door is to the right of our arched windows. The address will be on the window.
For access, please dial "#105" on the keypad/callbox. (That’s hash mark and then “105”)
Once you're inside, walk up the handful of stairs and I'm the door marked A105 on the left. (before the giant stairwell)
If you’re traveling in, know the area is safe and a great place to explore on foot. But also, Uber and Lyft is incredibly prevalent here and can get you anywhere you need to be! (Uber pickup from the studio usually takes 2-6 minutes) The train also stops close to the studio, so I’ve listed that info on the sidebar to the right.
Parking is hit or miss. It’s free near the studio, but often in the morning it’ll take 4 or 5 laps around the block before someone will leave and you can snag the spot.
Also! If you’re flying in, O’hare is much closer to the studio. Midway is south and is doable, but know the commute is substantial.
Where to Stay
Of course you can stay downtown, but we’re about 6 miles away, up North. With traffic, the commute can be anywhere from 20 minutes to over an hour.
Many of my clients stay at Hotel Lincoln which is located next to Lincoln Park and has a ton of great things to do surrounding it. If you mention me and why you’re coming to Chicago, they’ll know and help as well. Otherwise, I’ve found many clients use AirBNB and find some lovely spaces in and around Ravenswood, Lakeview, North Center or the Lincoln Park area.
