A Garden on a crowded avenue

The Terrace Garden was part of the huge (40-floor) Morrison Hotel at Clark and Madison (now the Chase Bank - formerly BankOne - formerly First Nat'l Bank building). As can be seen in the photo, diners were seated stadium-style around a circular floor. On this central floor, or stage, most likely there were various acts, or an orchestra and dancing for the patrons. It brings to mind the local “Hollywood Boulevard” movie theatres, which feature the same type of seating for dining while watching a movie (though not with the same savoir faire, definitely). Does anyone know more about the Terrace?
