This week the newest in nightlife extravagance, Chicago’s Palace Nightclub, officially opened it’s doors to the public– and the 25,000 square foot club is sure to continue on a wild streak. With recent closings of legendary hotspots such as Level, Crobar, Mannequin, and Religion, Chicago has faced a bit of a drought when it comes to the next big scene… but Palace is here to quench the city’s thirst.
Check out what our friends at Metromix had to say about the palatial space:
This ornately decorated West Loop spot has got everything you’ve come to expect from a Las Vegas club: DJs spinning nightly, performing showgirls; signature cocktails and bottle service. But splashy doesn’t even begin to describe this over-the-top Moroccan-themed nightclub within the palatial restaurant-lounge, Alhambra Palace. Boasting more than 25,000 feet of Arabian-style glitz, you’ll find waterfalls, handcrafted mosaics and precious metals galore throughout the three-story space. Dramatic archways and 40-foot ceilings draw your eyes upward, but the Mediterranean and Spanish-influenced small plates menu brings noshers back to the here and now.
Last week also saw the opening of Proof, the chic black-and-white club which took over Level’s old Gold Coast space. With a menu of hand-crafted cocktails designed by mixologist Bridget Albert, upper level couches for bottle service, and a large dance floor, this may be the place to start if you’re looking for a more conservative night out.
Looking for something fun in Lincoln Park? Well, the neighborhood just got a nightlife revamp with a late-night license at the candlelit below ground space at B Bar which specializes in Top 40 hits and the occasional wristband drink package. An old favorite also gets a revamp with the opening of Fuze in the former Sky Bar space. Under new management, the space promises to keep that Downtown vibe without leaving the neighborhood.
