Part of 16 On Center

Together, Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden formed 16” on Center (16OC), a hospitality collective taking on projects and buildings in neighborhoods where they can’t wait to hang out. Each restaurant, bar and venue within the collective is a stand alone business but 16OC exists to provide support and services to strengthen each and every one.

The name 16” on Center is the construction term for a center mark that creates the strongest build, which is how we approach each project: creating the highest quality places that are meant to last. From Evanston to Hyde Park, our venues, bars and restaurants draw Chicagoans out of their homes, enabling them to be part of their neighborhoods.
