Ladies are in luck. The latest club to hit the Chicago scene has no cover charge for women on Thursday nights. The entry fee is certainly right, but you may not want to leave your wallet at home just yet. Unless you’re one for having strangers buy all your drinks, you’ll need a little more than change to keep yourself with a drink in hand.
If you’re truly looking for a cash-free night, bypass the liquor and head straight to one of two dance floors spinning house and techno. The club’s name, combination of its Ontario Street location and the oh-so-hip idea of an “entourage”, should give you an idea of how to dress. This is no time to be subtle; don your best gear and work it like you have a loyal posse all your own.
Every Saturday night (8:30 p.m.-2 a.m.), head to Ontourage for standup comedy at the Red Bar Comedy Club. $10 admission.
