Bruce Finkelman, owner of Empty Bottle purchased Thalia Hall late 2013. In just a few months Finkelman opened a high-end restaurant and basement level bar, marketed towards affluent youth not native to Pilsen. But Finkelman's biggest plan proposed to open early 2014 is a music venue expected to house a few hundred concert goers on any given night.
Thalia Hall located at 18th and Allport has joined a cluster of businesses serving this emerging East Pilsen demographic including Honky Tonk BBQ, Belli's: Organic Grocer, Modern Cooperative, Simone's Bar, Dia de los Tamales, and Lucky's Barbershop.
