I usually head down to Rive on Friday nights when Brad Altman is hosting his parties. There has not been another club in chicago that I've been to that I enjoy as much as Rive. The only major draw back is that they have started charging to go upstairs, they never used to do that but the last couple of times I've been there they have. But you don't need to go up ther to have a good time.
Pros: women, music, enviroment
Cons: , not enough bartenders
