This booth completed the photobooth hat trick we performed after the last night of the 2009 International Photobooth Convention held in Chicago, Illinois. This bar served as the venue for the closing night party, and was absolutely hopping for the few hours we were there. A group of convention attendees hovered around the booth and recounted the previous days' escapades. Anthony, Tim, Danny, and Brian all crammed in the booth, though apparently Tim didn't quite make it into the photo.

Bar Deville is a spacious and well designed drinking establishment in the Ukranian Village. Its three large rooms each provide a unique feel, the middle of which boasts a free pool table. The photobooth is perched in the wide hallway connecting the first two rooms. It is a sleek, black, remodeled machine that produces beautiful strips.

Bar proprietor Brad runs a tight ship and can also point you to some amazing hot dogs (by way of Hot Doug's). If you visit, say hello to Brad for us and ask for Eric if you have any photobooth questions.

UPDATE 7/8/13: Nikki wrote to let us know that the booth at Bar Deville looks the same on the outside, but is actually a converted digital machine inside.
