Shay Chicago,the sister nightclub to the critically acclaimed Cuvee Chicago, is River North’s upscale nightclub destination for bottle service, craft cocktails and special events specializing inLATE NIGHT revelry.
Since opening only more than a year ago, Shay Chicagohas hosted celebrities such asFuture Chicago, Lil Wayne, Nick Jonas,and 2 Chainz just to name a few. On the edge of the famed & busy Ontario strip, Shay Chicago starts every night feeling more like a chill lounge perfect for a quick drink.
By the time you reach midnight, the vibes completely change. All you can hear are the sounds of high heeled Christian Louboutins hitting the floor, all you can smell are freshly lit sparklers; by the time you reach midnight, Shay Nightclub (and Cuvee Chicago) show you how luxury nightlife is supposed to be done. Owned by Spot On Group, Shay Chicago was meant to be a luxury offering that was a bit more universal to more people than long time Chicago staple Cuvee Chicago.
Even though this was the goal of the venue upon its opening, Shay Chicago is still known for its extremely tough door much like its sister venue Cuvee. Now, the major differences between the two venues are time & space. Club Shay opens earlier & fits more people. As a forewarning to anything thinking it’s sweet here: Shay Bar is just as tough on dress code & turns away just as many people up front.
Providing more than just your typical Friday Saturday night in Chicago, Shay Chicago is a must visit.
