Bally’s Chicago offered members of the media an early look inside its temporary casino location, in the landmark Medinah Temple building at 600 N. Wabash. The three-level venue will feature some 750 slot machines, numerous table games, a café, two restaurants, and a large backlit Circle Bar. The design preserves and highlights historical elements, including the original atrium and stained-glass windows. Casino officials aim to open by the end of summer, pending approval of a gaming license by the state gaming board. DMA has provided development management and owner representation services as Bally’s readies its temporary location and develops a permanent Bally’s Chicago entertainment destination at Chicago Avenue and Halsted Street. The temporary operation is expected to generate $55 million in taxes for Chicago.
