My old bank is turning into a bar

Just read an article about the bank building where I used to work at Ashland and Division in the Wicker Park area. The building is being converted and the old basement vault area will become a bar!

The building was built, if I remember correctly, in the early 1920s and was a solid “old-school” bank building. The vault in the basement was huge and will serve as the lounge for the restaurant that will go in there.
