ABOUT THIS LOCATION
Sprawling, slick, vaguely gothic and attracting a crowd that's easy-on-the-eyes, LaSalle Power Co. has given the River North neighborhood a much needed jolt since the place opened on May 1, 2009. LaSalle Power Co. is brought to you by the experienced bartrepreneurs behind Angels & Mariachis, The Central, Grand Central, Green at Grant Park, and English, the latter of which is within shouting distance just down the street. The bar is located on the corner of LaSalle and Illinois in the old LaSalle Street Cable Car Powerhouse building. The building was completed in 1887 and designated a Chicago historic landmark building in 2001. The building serves as the best preserved example of the power generating stations that ran, at the time, the nation's largest cable car system.
