Named “Chicago Hotspot” by US Weekly and “Best in the US” by Nightclub & Bar Magazine, has not only elevated Chicago nightlife to unprecedented heights by attracting a rotating guest list of Chicago notables, celebrities, and international DJs, but is also a perfect location for a wide range of events, including over-the-top birthday celebrations, product launches, charitable fundraisers, and festive company holiday parties with colleagues, family reunions, or friends for groups of 50-425 guests — making it one of the largest and most unique private party venues in Chicago.

Our venue is split into two separate event spaces, the lounge and the club, with both party rooms having separate availability for booking. For large events, both rooms are available to be booked pending availability.

Our high level of customer service, attention to detail, and delicious party catering allows your guests to feel like VIPs in a sophisticated Chicago venue with a modern vibe. Lighting, custom menus, and ambiance can be adjusted according to your specific needs, and music levels set to appropriate levels for your event style to be sure your clientele feels comfortable and welcome.
