Excalibur was a hip, happening place when I was growing up. It was THE place to go. It has now become more of a tourist hot-spot who have heard of it from others. There are times on occasion where it is enticing to go, however, it seems to have lost its popular stage. At one time, it was one of the 'In Places' in the country. I used to run into NBA players and other professional athletes all the time in the past.
It has a huge, and I mean huge, dancefloor and the size of the club is enormous. You can always be sure to see good-looking women in sexy clothes.
The bars have a wide range of beverages to choose from. Foreign and domestic beers and a long list of mixed drinks to choose from.
The atmosphere, although not what it once was, is still enjoyable. The best part is the location, in the heart of downtown Chicago. That more than anything is what makes it a tourist hot spot.
