Shake Your Groove Thang: Chicago’s Dance Scene



Mel Baker – Swissotel

This multi-bar, two-level River North hotspot is a go-to nightclub for locals and visitors alike. With guest DJs spinning the latest tune, you can dance until your feet fall off on a 4,000 foot dance floor and bask in the floor-to-ceiling projector displays and laser lights – the consummate dance club experience!


Krystal Brown – Marriott Mag Mile

This glam nightclub and restaurant features a music lineup that includes some of the world’s hottest DJs like Kaskade, DJ Pauly D, and Afrojack, giving club goers all the more reason to party. Enjoy the upscale Asian-inspired decor and large dance floor all night long!


Jason Novak – Bloomingdale’s

Boystown’s biggest bar and nightclub boasts multiple bar spaces and a rooftop deck that’s open year-round, so you’re sure to find a vibe that suits you. Enjoy weekly events like Musical Monday, Dance & Lip Sync nights, and more as you sip on Sidetrack’s signature slushie cocktails.


Marcus Hollis – Omni Hotels

Throwback to the 70s at Disco, an energetic, glamorous, globally-influenced club with a wall-to-wall LED dance floor, custom retro wall coverings, and mirrored ceilings. From classic jams to deep cuts and contemporary disco, DJs spin music that evokes Studio 54 with a modern twist.


Shannon Boland – LondonHouse Chicago Hotel

Chicago’s most notable celebrities frequent Underground, so you know it’s a spot to see and be seen (Kanye West has been known to make an appearance or two!) Dance your booty off with a rotating guest DJ list and live acts you don’t want to miss – and stick around for the late-night trays of fresh-baked cookies!

Revel Room

Mat Chapman – JW Marriott

Keep it chill or shake what your mama gave you at this Wicker Park haunt! The vintage-vibe of the front area at Revel Room offers cozy cocktails, and cushy furnishings, while the back room boasts a dance floor, DJ-spun jams, and a lively and exciting environment.

Testimony from Flor Sigaron – Chicago Athletic Association Hotel

For a night of dancing, I recommended No9 Lounge and Prysm nightclub. In the bustling Lincoln Park area, Prysm is a bi-level nightclub with some of the best DJ acts and plenty of room to dance. No9 VIP lounge above is more intimate and great for a luxury bottle service experience.
