The Chicago House of Night is located in Chicago, Illinois in Grant Park. It is the setting of the end of the novella Neferet's Curse. Currently, Stevie Rae is High Priestess of the House of Night.


The Chicago House of Night was described as a palace with thick, high marble walls, which have been heavily enforced with an otherworldly magick that draws strength from the night, the moon, and the Goddess. Neferet describes the House of Night as palatial. There's also a sumptuous private infirmary and the bedchambers are beautiful and spacious. The bedchambers have two beds and desks. The gardens in the House of Night had been created to be fully enjoyed only after the sun sets. Night blooming jasmine, moon flowers, evening primrose, and lilies open to the moon and release a fragrance that is sweet and satisfying, that stretches on for acres. Dozens of fountains and statues are situated throughout the grounds, each of them illustrating a different version of the Goddess, Nyx. There's also a willow tree that curtains an area not far from a particularly beautiful marble statue of the Goddess, arms raised, lush body unashamedly naked. Like every other House of Night, cats roam freely around the campus. Before James Stark transferred to the Tulsa House of Night, Duchess roamed freely around the grounds and was integrated into the campus. The House of Night and the grounds are surrounded by a white marble wall and wrought-iron gates. Students had access to a fleet of carriages and bicycles back in the nineteenth century.
