After Hours allows guests to wander these Wright homes, which are usually open for guided tours only. At both the Bach House and Robie House, a live jazz combo will perform. Beer, white wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

The beautifully restored Emil Bach House, which Wright designed in 1915, has well-appointed grounds and a Japanese-style tea house that will be open to After Hours guests.

October After Hours at the Robie House is a chance to explore Wright’s 1910 Prairie-style masterpiece, including the balcony with its geometric leaded glass doors, the private upstairs spaces and the innovative open living room.

Nominated in 2015 as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Frederick C. Robie House is a world-renowned masterpiece. The American Association of Architects named Robie House one of the 10 most significant buildings of the 20th century. Emil Bach House is the only Frank Lloyd Wright building in Chicago that is available to rent for meetings and overnight events.
