    Very crapy line. Also they hire someone to spill your drink, and clean it up after you...awkward.

    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.

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

    This place is so underground that it's actually literally underground.

    It was always an awesome place to get wild, but the expansion makes it a great place to relax with friends as well!

    WARNING! WATCH YOUR BELONGINGS! If I could give this place a ZERO I would! Security personnel are very condescending people!

    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.

    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!

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

    First time experiencing the nightlife in Chicago and I had to visit this place. Very impressed. Count on me recomending it to all my DC industry folks.

    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.

    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

    Apparently when you don't have a funktion1 system in your club you're allowed to act like a kook.

    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.

    Worst club in Chicago... Way better time staying home & jerking off with a cheese grader than to spend money or time at this dump
