One of the places to be in the Windy City is the Underground. Located in the heart of River North, it is the destination of luminaries of the sports, music , and entertainment worlds. Part of the entertainment conglomerate known as Rockit Ranch Productions, Underground caters to the elite and makes the regulars feel like they are A – List. When celebs come to town, it is Billy Dec’s club where they come to play. I have partied there quite a few times and always get that “special” treatment. There is great music, great food , and awesome cocktails. A specialty of “La Dec”
To the naked eye, the Underground seems like a dungeon or tunnel left over from the days of the Cold War. The entrance requires you to go to the bottom of the stairs to a dark, brick interior. But once one enters the bar area, colored lights and music greet the visitor. Uniformed guards act as security and girls in khaki costumes serve the food and drinks. Many celebrities have recently dropped in at the Underground like David Arquette, Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl, and several of the Chicago Bulls and Blackhawks. Underground is also a very popular place for after parties of some of the biggest charity events in town like Piven’s Theatre Workshop benefit and Lookingglass; Madhatters Ball. Recently Cheeky Chicago ended their summer boat party with a stop at the Underground. So if you wanna hang with the A list crowd, come party at the Underground.
