Step into the perfumed parlors of the Everleigh Club, the most famous brothel in American history - and the catalyst for a culture war that rocked the nation. Operating in Chicago's notorious Levee district at the dawn of the century, the Club's proprietors, two aristocratic (or so they said) sisters named Minna and Ada Everleigh, welcomed moguls and actors, senators and athletes, foreign dignitaries and literary icons into their stately double mansion, where thirty stunning Everleigh "butterflies" awaited their arrival. Courtesans named Doll, Diamond Bertha, and Brick Top devoured raw meat to the delight of Prince Henry of Prussia and recited poetry for Theodore Dreiser.
