Employee Relief Fund

Under the unfortunate circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak, all Chicago bars and restaurants have been forced to close, in turn leaving our over 500 employees without work for the next few weeks. 

In response, we have set up a relief fund to financially help our employees make it through any hardship they may incur due to this terrible situation. 

Our restaurant group (Hubbard Inn, Joy District, Old Grounds Social, HVAC PUB, The Dime, Happy's Lounge) will match any donation given with a gift card to one of our properties. 

Our hope is that the hospitality industry bands together and comes out even stronger on the other side. We believe that this is a great first step in ensuring the future of the industry.
