Chicago House, which was owned by Doug Guller and ATX Brands, is turning into music venue Tellers, opening on Friday, October 2. It will be run by real estate agency founder and motivational speaker Chad Goldwasser. In his Facebook post announcing the new venture, Goldwasser thanks Guller "who made this dream a reality for me."
The three-level Tellers on 607 and 609 Trinity Street will also take over affiliated bars Upstairs on Trinity and speakeasy Vinyl at the same location. The first floor will serve deep dish pies from Chicago institution Gino’s East, according to KXAN. Guller helmed the pizza chain's Texas expansion. Goldwasser also told the news station that "we’re going to keep the place open as much as possible," with music set times scheduled all night.
The Trinity location used to be home to beloved dive bar Lovejoys. This is Goldwasser's first music venue. Guller currently runs Parish, Scoot Inn, Bikinis, and other bars and restaurants.
