Originally a dialysis center, Helios was contracted to renovate the 13,200 square foot building into three white box retail spaces. We were then contracted again to build out this 150-seat cabaret theater in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. The theater includes new floor and wall finishes, a new stage, risers, and a build-in bar consisting of reclaimed wood.
