The Low Down


Parking: Valet is reasonable, but the temptation to circle just one more time is great. If you choose the latter, think about making the haul from Chicago Ave.

When to Go: Thursdays are a good bet, but that doesn't mean no cover; it's $20, unless there's a big-name show--then it might be more.

Where to Sit: Get a seat upstairs. Plunk down for a bottle, or just smooth-talk your way through a stairway bouncer. The roof-height perspective is worth the hassle, possibly the money.

The Extras: Management says there is no cut-through to 720. There used to be, so presumably there still is one. Good to know if you want to shift between house and Latin music.

Know Before You Go: Bigger-name DJs will no-doubt bring the crowds, so call ahead if you are planning a weekend visit. Also, the vibe here is pretty casual in comparison to nearby clubs, but bouncers will still call you out for wearing tennis shoes and hats.
