Old World meets the velvet rope at Privet nightclub.
There’s more than a whiff of fromage coming off North Rush Street out of Privét, the new ultra-exclusive nightclub in the former Le Passage space. Put it down to their somewhat misguided emphasis on “Old World royal treatment and European traditions.” Obviously someone’s been reading up on the Sun King. If you ignore the attitude–and get past the velvet rope–you’ll find some of the sexiest babes and skimpiest outfits in town, serving you top-shelf drinks. A concierge caters to guests’ every need, from bottle service to a room at the Thompson’s Sax Hotel afterwards, and a limo to get you there. Of course, the interior is beyond plush, but there are worse places to spend the night and avoid the rabble. 937 N. Rush St., 312-255-0022
