Winner, voted by readers, of the 2014 "Best Nightclub Venue for Corporate Events" by IL Meetings + Events Magazine, our mission is to impress your guests by offering excellent and plentiful catering, superior service, and delicious mixology in an atmosphere that is customized to suit your event goals.

We offer a cozy lounge-style setting with ambient lighting, and a stimulating party-scene with l.e.d. lighting and lasers that move to the music. Our incredible technology allows you to highlight your brand, products, and logos for a customized experience as you buyout the entire venue for your company party for 100 Guests, to 450 Guests...and anywhere in between.

The venue has 3 bars, and 1 service bar behind the scenes. Our staff can be in their military-chic uniforms, or wear black cocktail attire for an upscale event. We can accommodate one large party up to 450 guests, or two separate groups with independent DJ Booths & Rest Room Facilities in each room.

“The Club” (Capacity 325): Equipped with 2 Bars, a 40-foot digital video wall with unlimited digital projection capabilities that serves as the backdrop to the already prominent elevated DJ booth. Lots of seating at built in booths with cocktail tables, and plenty of standing room.

“The Lounge” (Capacity 125): Pass by the purposely featured, and elegantly illuminated underground boiler room (that houses the Boyce Building's working water pipes) then through the glowing tunnel, to find yourself in “The Lounge.” This chandelier adorned area 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.

“The Menus & Catering”

With access to the award-winning culinary team behind the venues of Rockit Ranch Productions, all catering is coordinated in-house. Menus can be customized to suit any taste or occasion including passed hors d’oeuvres, sushi, carvings, entrée buffets, antipasto stations, and sweets.
