Prudential Building

Ventrue Holding

One Prudential Plaza and Two Prudential Plaza are a pair of towering structures in the Loop, completed in 1955 and 1990 respectively. 1, being only 41 stories tall, was the first to be finished - a beautiful but more modest building in comparison to 2, which is 64 stories high and easily one of the most recognizable parts of the Chicago skyline. Home to radio stations, office buildings, cultural consulates, and countless others, these two towers are a hotbed for Kindred activity, specifically for the Ventrue of Chicago, who have an unshakable foothold in the two towers.

Water Tower

Originally planned in the late 1960s by the Mafco Company (the former shopping center development division of Marshall Field & Co.), the skyscraper was eventually built in 1975 by Urban Retail Properties, a company led by Philip Morris Klutznick and his son Thomas J. Klutznick. The project received a J.C. Nichols Prize from the Urban Land Institute in 1986. Modernist architect Edward D. Dart of Loebl Schlossman Bennett and Dart, was the chief architect.

The tower section is a 78-story 859-foot reinforced concrete slab, faced with gray marble, and is the eighth tallest building in Chicago and the twenty-sixth tallest in the United States. When built, it was the tallest reinforced concrete building in the world. It contains an award-winning Ritz-Carlton hotel, luxury condominiums, and office space and sits atop a block-long base containing an atrium-style retail mall that fronts on the Magnificent Mile.

It is also home to Elysium, having replaced the famous succubus club. Those that would like the safety and security of the Elysium simply ride up the elevator to the private floor via their key card or must pass through security. This is true for all, from visiting dignitaries to villains seeking succor.

Contemporary Museum of Art

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Chicago is a contemporary art museum near Water Tower Place in downtown Chicago. The museum, which was established in 1967, is one of the world's largest contemporary art venues. The museum's collection is composed of thousands of objects of Post-World War II visual art. The museum is run gallery-style, with individually curated exhibitions throughout the year. Each exhibition may be composed of temporary loans, pieces from their permanent collection, or a combination of the two.

The museum has hosted several notable debut exhibitions including Frida Kahlo's first U.S. exhibition and Jeff Koons' first solo museum exhibition. Its collection, which includes Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker, and Alexander Calder, contains historical samples of 1940s–1970s late surrealism, pop art, minimalism, and conceptual art; notable holdings 1980s postmodernism; as well as contemporary painting, sculpture, photography, video, installation, and related media. The museum also presents dance, theater, music, and multidisciplinary arts.

The museum is a well beloved haven for the city's toreador and all those that love art, or simply want to feel the historic development of visual arts.

Civic Opera House

The Civic Opera House is an opera house located at 20 North Wacker Drive in Chicago. It is part of a structure which contains a 45-story office tower and two 22-story wings, known as the Civic Opera Building. This structure opened November 4, 1929, and has an Art Deco interior with additional art deco details on the exterior. The Civic Opera House has 3,563 seats, making it the second-largest opera auditorium in North America. Built for the Chicago Civic Opera, today it is the permanent home of the Lyric Opera of Chicago.

The building has been seen as being shaped like a huge chair and is sometimes referred to as "Insull's Throne," named after Samuel Insull whom envisioned it. It has long been the seat of Court for Chicago's kindred.

Illinois Psychiatric Hospital

Chicago Lakeshore Hospital is a private behavioral health and addiction treatment center located in the north side of the city of Chicago.

It provides treatment services to those struggling with alcoholism, chemical dependency and drug use, as well as including their families as an integral part of the multi-disciplinary team. Treatment services include screening, orientation, assessment, detox services, treatment planning, crisis intervention, consultation, inpatient and outpatient services, education, rehab, referral and individual and group counseling. Chicago Lakeshore Hospital specializes in the treatment of dual diagnosis - a combination of alcoholism/drug use/chemical dependency and a behavioral health issue or a mental health disorder, treatment of children, adolescents and adults, as well as comprehensive treatment for the LGBTQ community.

This particular location is a playground for the City's malkavian's especially those with a darker taste for people on the edge.

Succubus Club

Attended for years by Kindred from all over the world who come to check out opulent, goth-laden club. Teeming with decadence and kine, the place smells of blood and sex and marijuana. Here a 17-year old in proper goth-club-wear will get in before a yuppie in a tailored suit. Balconies look down upon the dance floor, peopled by the most elite of Kindred. But the basement is where the real action is. Here the music turns angry- speed-metal, punk, and militant rap roar out from violent bands with violent names.

For Kindred and Kine who find themselves in need of privacy, a huge maze runs around the perimeter of the basement. In the shadowy corners and cubbyholes of the maze dealers hawk their wares, sex is rampant and Blood Dolls share their blood to all comers.
