  • What is ALTAR?
    ALTAR is a social and spiritual gathering space for conscious community in the heart of Chicago. We specialize in 3 things: 1. ALTAR is a sacred clubhouse for curious women. ALTAR members can use the space as a kind of home away from home to work and play. They also have access to a variety of free monthly members-only programs to restore, explore and connect with our amazing community of women. 2. ALTAR is a hub for transformational programs at the intersection of healing and empowerment. Paid programs are open to everyone, but member’s receive discounted pricing. 3. ALTAR is a one-of-a-kind event venue. The space is available for corporate offsites, private events, networking groups, & weekend retreats, to name a few.
  • Can I just walk in? What are your hours of operation?
    ALTAR is a members-only space, except during Open House Days & during select programs & events. Walk-in visitors are not permitted unless accompanied by a member or if you are attending a paid program or event. We are open Monday through Friday, 9am - 5pm, though ALTAR Clubhouse Members are welcome to use the space (almost!) anytime. For more details on membership, click here.
  • Where is ALTAR located?
    ALTAR's address is 2518 W Armitage, although our door is actually on Bingham, just to the right of Integrative Pet Care. The space is on the second floor with a single staircase. We do have access to an elevator for those who need it. Please reach out to Yessica at and we can assist you with elevator access.
  • Is there parking at ALTAR?
    If you're planning to visit, please leave ample time for parking as we are in a popular area. There is free parking on Armitage and alongside the building on Bingham. There is paid parking on Milwaukee and Western, and we do always suggest public transportation or ride share when possible. We are only a couple blocks from the Western stop on the Blue Line.
  • What programs do you offer?
    ALTAR offers a wide variety of programs at the intersection of healing and empowerment that are open to the public. Some programs are open to everyone, some are members-only, and others are designed only for women.

  • Does ALTAR offer coworking?
    We view ALTAR as a Third Place - not home, not work - a place to gather, connect and get the business of life done in the company of other curious women. If you typically work remotely, our clubhouse is a great way to get a change of scenery and connect with other women. We have a handful of individual offices available on a first come first, serve basis and many places to work in community. Want to see more? Take a virtual tour of the space here. While we typically don't offer coworking day passes, if you'd like to check out the space to schedule a tour, please send us an email at hello@altarcommunity. That being said, the best way to get to know us is to come to one of our monthly Bring Your Soul to Work days, where you can cowork and participate in a variety of free programs throughout the day!
