Welcome to

Embers + Apothecary

Nestled in Chicago's Printer Row, Embers + Apothecary is more than a candle haven—we're a vibrant hub for your creativity. We specialize in offering hands-on candle making experiences through daily classes and private reservations for friends, families and colleagues.


We are dedicated to providing a unique blend of creativity, community, and unconventional experiences. Our space serves as a welcoming third place—a spot away from work and home, designed for individuals and groups to gather, laugh, date, host parties, and build connections.
