The Underground

56 West Illinois St.
Chicago, IL 60654
At the Underground, we produce showstopping private events for corporate buyouts, holiday parties, birthday celebrations, and all the special occasions in between! Conveniently located in the trendy River North neighborhood and steps from Michigan Avenue, two unique spaces within the venue provide an expansive playground for up to 450 guests. With in-house catering provided by our award-winning sister restaurant, Sunda New Asian, private events at the Underground feature an incredible assortment of passed cuisine and sweets, as well as chef-attended action stations and buffets. Offering a full portfolio of premium spirits, champagne, wine, and beer, the Underground’s food-and-beverage program is second to none.

Named “One of the Sexiest Places in the World” by Cosmopolitan, The Underground not only holds true to the name but also the reputation, as guests descend into our subterranean world of unforgettable fun. Fully equipped with state-of-the-art sound and lighting, including a 40-foot digital wall, The Underground offers endless branding capabilities for company logos, graphic content, and video presentations. Full-spectrum lasers, haze machines, and CO2 cannons create the ultimate party atmosphere, when desired. Armed with three bars, elevator, a massive coat check room, and private restrooms in both rooms (The Club and The Lounge), The Underground accommodates up to 450 guests.
