Ideal for partiers who enjoy the laid-back dive bar attitude but not the traditionally grungy digs, this Rush Street nightspot combines an easygoing vibe (read: no entry line or cover charge) with the styling of an upscale lounge. Surrounded by exposed brick walls and plush chairs, patrons hit the dance floor while the DJ spins an eclectic mix of hip hop, R&B, and 90’s hits. At the sleek, candlelit bar, guests can order “flute” cocktails such as the Pre-nup – vodka, fresh kiwi, sparkling wine and candied papaya in a champagne flute – and “pilsner” cocktails like the Guinness-based Trophy Wife.

Insider Tip:

The lounge offers affordable private party packages, so patrons can easily celebrate special events under ESL’s impressive skylights.
