Host your next event at Chicago's best nightclub, The Underground, the venue described as one of the “sexiest places in the world” by Cosmopolitan Magazine, and named “One of America’s Top Ten VIP Lounges” by Playboy. Our mission is to impress your guests by offering excellent food, service, and cocktails in an atmosphere that is customized to suit your event goals. We offer an ambient and cozy lounge-style setting, or a stimulating party-scene with lights that move to the music, and a colorful laser lighting program. Our incredible technology allows you to highlight your brand, products, and logos for a customized experience.

The venue accommodates up to 450 Guests for a cocktail reception with 3 bars, and 1 service bar behind the scenes. We offer in-house catering for events, and also supply catering from our sister venues. Our staff can be in their military-chic uniforms, or wear black cocktail attire for your event. The venue can accommodate one large party, or two separate smaller groups with independent DJ Booths and Rest Room Facilities in each room.

“The Club” (Capacity 325): Featuring sophisticated, modern ambience, “The Club” is equipped with a 40-foot high-definition digital video wall with unlimited projection capabilities that serves as the backdrop to the already prominent elevated DJ booth. The DJ booth is flanked by two platforms set with VIP booths and tables. Lots of seating at built in booths with cocktail tables, and standing room at two bars.

“The Lounge” (Capacity 125): As you pass by the purposely featured, and elegantly illuminated underground boiler room (that houses working water pipes) then through the glowing tunnel, you find yourself in “The Lounge.” This chandelier adorned addition, is a mature and refined refuge with plush sofa seating, rich woods, gold trim, and a giant bar. The space also features an over-sized DJ Booth with VIP Seating for a one-of-a-kind experience, all elevated behind the huge mixology and champagne bar.
