If you want to feel as though you’re in Vegas, don your stilettos and head to TAO Chicago, the midwest outpost of the Las Vegas and NYC nightclubs. Upstairs from the massive Pan Asian restaurant, the other half of the TAO Chicago experience is a 7,000-square-foot nightclub that you enter through 100-year-old Chinese doors then down a lantern-lit exterior alley. Sip cocktails (but know that bathroom lines can feel interminable), order bottle service and peruse the multi-sensory scene in the intimate front nightclub space or the expansive rear room set underneath a 10-foot bell and sparkly disco ball. The two nightclubs are separated by an operable wall that transforms into a one-room venue. Expect some top-tier artists and DJs.

With years of experience, our VIP Nightlife team can take your ideas from an inspiration to a fully executed, once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Let us plan a great night out in Chicago. Call us quick and easy: 312 878 0707.
