Even our wildest dreams can come true,
if we have the courage to pursue them.
-Walt Disney

THEVISION

The goal was to create something that was
more than a Bar. A definitive message wrapped
in hand crafted visuals designed to remind us
of how far we’ve come as a community.
Progress – Moving forward. Together.

Progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of
justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle.
-Martin Luther King Jr.

THEVenue

A concept like nothing Halsted has ever seen before.
Engineered to be visually impactful and conceptually
profound in almost every way.
The wide open windows and expansive floor plan
creates a space that flows and breathes.

Change is the law of life. And those who look only
to the past or present
are certain to miss the future.
-John F. Kennedy

THETeam

We have a unique
blend of talent that creates
the Progress Bar
experience.

Progress or perish, now as ever,
is nature’s inexorable imperative.
-H.G. Wells
