TOWER TEA ROOM, 820 Tower Court

Located on the Pearson Street side of the Illinois Woman's Athletic Club Building, a soaring skyscraper which makes the historic old Chicago Avenue water tower in front of it look like a midget. Good substantial dishes are served here and there are as many men at the tables as women. The room is decorated with striking wall designs and all is elegant and in keeping with what a first-class dining room, just off the Avenue, should be.
