Nestled above Tree House in River North, the club is on the third floor and its entrance is built like an underground tunnel, putting on a mystical appeal to the nightlife attraction. The nondescript entrance on Kinzie Street is nestled between two adjacent buildings and opens to a hidden staircase inspired by London’s infamous urban tunnels. Blending the allure of a high-energy nightlife experience with VIP treatment, Tunnel aims to transform its [4,898 sq ft] venue into an immersive party experience with color changing LED lights hanging from the ceiling and a state-of-the-art lighting system synchronised with a Martin Audio sound system and twelve-panel video wall for an unrivalled audio-visual experience. The club provides an unparalleled nightlife experience for guests looking to enjoy premier table service or dance the night away to their favorite guest and celebrity DJs. The club also has a grand dance floor and several lounges to choose from.
The club opened its doors in 2015 and was Samantha Sanchez’s creation. Her aim was to have a dynamic, yet affordable, nightclub with an air of luxury preserved. The intimate space designed by distinguished interior designer, Rocco Laudizio, is an exclusive cocktail lounge that portrays a contemporary mural created by emerging Chicago artist David Bozic.
At Tunnel Chicago, everyone deserves a refined clubbing experience that doesn’t break the bank. For those of you who like to snack while partying, Tunnel Chicago also has several food options along with an extensive liquor menu. The sound system – provided by Martin Audio – is top-notch and elevates the lively atmosphere of the club. On Thursdays it’s Reggaetón, on Fridays and Saturdays it’s open format with a mix of everything and on Sundays it’s Latin based with a mix of EDM and Hip Hop. The club plays pop and EDM every weekend and has an alternating lineup of DJs.
