Fodor's Expert Review Bloomingdale's (Medinah Temple)

River North Building/Architectural Site

Built in 1912 for the Shriners, the former Medinah Temple is a Middle Eastern fantasy, with horseshoe-shape arches, stained-glass windows, and intricate geometric patterns around windows and doors (it once also held a 4,200-seat auditorium). Vacant for many years, it was transformed into a Bloomingdale's Home & Furniture Store in 2003.
