Housed in the landmarked former Jewelers Building, JAHN is an architectural firm with an emphasis on sustainability and creating high-performing buildings. The building's cupola, once the infamous private speakeasy of Al Capone known as the Stratosphere Lounge, boasts dramatic 360-degree views of the heart of downtown. This room is now exclusively used by JAHN for private meetings, to showcase work, and to entertain dignitaries and guests from around the world.
Behind the Scenes Access: CAF Members Only – Visit the firm’s office for a tour including models and drawings of concepts and buildings from around the world. Then take a caged, circular elevator up to the breathtaking cupola.
