The Preston Bradley Center is a hub for community engagement in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. PBC’s signature programs include the longstanding 2 Li’l Fishes free lunch program, which serves over 2,000 meals a month to neighbors in need, and the Uptown Arts Center, home to a dozen artists sharing studio space and host to regular art exhibitions and poetry readings. We also provide office and programming space for other organizations focused on arts and culture, spirituality and community. Our building is home to faith communities, artists, choirs, and those experiencing homelessness; it is an event space for concerts large and small, youth events, holiday celebrations, and much more.

We are proud to be featured in Open House Chicago, a City of Chicago Landmark, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of historic Uptown Square.
