    This place is a blast - young professionals getting super loose after a long work week. You'll hear top music, get drunker than you want to and probably dance with a Blackhawks or Bulls player.

    Underground is definitely a Chicago staple. If you enjoy the nightlife and dance music, check out for original videos, exclusive content, and news.

    Popping bottles. Usually selective on who gets in. Either you're hot.. Or you need to know someone in the industry.

    Perfect if you’re looking for a danceable scene with the atmosphere of a NYC lounge. Just a tip: the name doesn’t lie – this place really is underground!

    Awesome door guys. I remember when we first opened Moes Cantina in river north and I took care of them everytime they came up. They don't return the favor. Way to be industry. Fucking clowns.

    With populist hip-hop and house remixes, the sleek, dark, militaristic space comes alive. Celebrity command performances might not always be A-list. Read more

    Went here for a private event. Service was good except for the security guards- they were rude: pushed me out of the way to get to the back room to do basically nothing.

    This place is only fun as an after-hours bar. Don't waste your time until everywhere else is closed. The crowd is kind of sketch and the venue is a bit small. The drinks aren't that great either.

    Typical, trendy nightclub. This place doesn't offer a lot of seating space. That perk is reserved for those with bottle service.
