Located in the Westerpark, this industrial club space is full of concrete, steel, and a crazy-fun nightlife.
This events space features its own bar with food and drink, and it's also the home of the 2013 Cannabis Cup. There's a good selection of cheap beer here as well, but make sure you go on a sunny day since the majority of the space is outdoors.
Practically a dance Mecca, Studio 80 rocks contemporary electronic dance music on most nights. And they're always tinkering with their concepts, so don't be surprised to see showcases for regular dance music developments including DJs and other live acts.
The Chicago Social Club is one part nightclub, one part comedy club (Boom Chicago, located in the back), with a distinctly international vibe. Once the laughs end, the music and dancing begins.
