It’s crazy that the fourth of July just passed, but here we are in the heart of another summertime Chi! With so many event options out there and with Lollapalooza on the horizon, we’re sure you’re asking yourself what’s their to do this month/early August. Of course, the best nightclubs in Chicago Nightlife simply don’t disappoint. This month, the heavyweights in each corner are Shay Chicago and Prysm Nightclub and for good reason.

Even though Studio Paris and The Underground Chicago have plenty in store, Shay Chicago and Prysm Chicago will probably take the limelight:

Shay promises 9 LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCES from now until August. Starting this weekend with Terror Squad’s Fat Joe on Saturday (7/8), the Shay (and Cuvee Chicago) will bring in 5 major label artists in July capping it off with Riff Raff on Friday (7/28). Everything in-between being surprise announcements with the biggest already hitting the newswire.

The moment we can release this insider info to one of the most exclusive nightclubs in Chicago WE WILL!

At Prysm Chicago, famed Off-White Chicago designer Virgil Abloh (and Kyle) will be the headliner DJs this Saturday (7/8). Showing he’s as versatile with vinyl as he is with Off-White Chicago screen prints, Virgil keeps his music hip hop focused but open format. Outside of that, on the electronic music Chicago side of things, Prysm will be bringing in DJs Erick Morillo on Saturday (7/22) and Joe Maz on Saturday (7/29).

Are these musicians not on your radar? The Underground Chicago is hosting their annual Summer Music Series every Thursday this month until 7/20. Bringing DJ Klutch, Graham Funke, and DJ Benny; the venue aims to bring in artists that are more known for their club sets than their Billboard hits. They’ll also be hosting their Camp UG Party on Friday (7/21) which is inspired by cult classic movies like Sandlot & Heavy Weights with Ben Stiller

Any news on Lollapalooza? Chicago’s newest nightclub Prysm has already announced Tiesto on Wednesday August 2nd while Shay has already booked most of their weekend up.

Shay (and Cuvee Chicago's) Lollapalooza line up thus far is looking like:

  • Thursday (8/3): A-Trak @ Cuvee Nightclub
  • Friday (8/4): Majid Jordan @ Shay
  • Saturday (8/5): 21 Savage @ Shay

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! What a summer and it's only July fifth.
