This summer, Frank Lloyd Wright fans in Chicago will get their very own watering hole. A bar inspired by the legendary architect is opening up on the city’s Near West Side, according to Time Out Chicago.

Due to open this summer, it will be called Prairie School, after Wright’s pioneering design style. Sadly, it’s not going to be located in any of the dozens of buildings in the city and its surrounding suburbs actually designed by Wright. (The space previously housed a restaurant that specialized in lobster rolls.)

The interior design, however, is expected to draw from Wright’s distinctly Midwestern design sensibilities, and the bar will serve Wright-themed cocktails as well. We can’t wait to find out what The Fallingwater tastes like.
