Very Unproffesional Staff!!!! – I reserved a table and free entrance for 25 people with the club promoter.
First, at the entrance they said that they will let in only 12 people for free before midnight, not 25 as I scheduled with the promoter. The other thing was that we went inside and there was no table reservation for us. I went there with 9 people and we were waiting for 6 more people. We walk up and down to look for the table and there was no reservation made for us. Then I went back to the front door to talk to one of the bouncer. One of them came back inside with me and we start to walk around with the 9 people up and down and look like idiots. Then he said to one waitress from upstairs to look for the table for us. She point to me a table upstairs that only one person was able to sit at. Then I ask her to bring us the champagne and she lied to me that they are out of champagne. I said that this is a joke and I went back to the guy outside. He came back inside with me and called the waitress back and tells her to bring the champagne. Then he let us sit at a table downstairs, but he said that we can stay there only till midnight. After midnight he came back there and he said to 15 of my guests that we need to leave the table. Everyone was shocked. After we all moved from the table the table was empty. Nobody was sitting there till we leave the place at 3 am. All of the people I invited said that Crowbar lost all of them as customers. There is so many nicer and professional places in Chicago. That this was very unprofessional.
Good Music on Saturdays – I would say go for it on Saturdays, if you like to dance.
The crowd is good, with a few cheesy 40 year old greek guys in gold chains who bring prostitutes into the club.
Ignore them, you'll have a good time!
expensive drinks! – I'm more into the Industrial scene, but this club was okay. They played popular music, there were a lot of people, a balcony, and they stay open until 5am. However, $11 long islands = too expensive in my opinion.
Crobar set quotas for the number of blacks allowed inside and selectively uses dress codes to enforce that – Patterns of discrimination still exist the nightclub Crobar put this in full effect this friday. The nightclubs Crobar set quotas for the number of blacks allowed inside and selectively use dress codes to enforce that. My friend that is white was throwing a birthday party at Crobar all his white friends where allow entry but all his blacks friends including I wasnt. We asked why and the bourncer gave each one of us a bogus answer. It was a special model night and as well as us some black model where denied entry, asked bouncer why and told them they were wearing the wrong ear rings.
Best Place to go on Saturday Night – This is without a doubt the best club on Saturday night. If you like bangin' electo house music then this is the place to be. Mixin Marc is on the decks throwing down every Saturday with Nathan Scott in the Suite. DJs from all over the world come to Crobar to spin when they come to Chicago, like Rogen Sanchez, Erick Morillo, DeadMau5, Robbie Rivera, and more. If you're looking for the best clubbing experience in Chicago this is it.
Solid House Music – Crobar is awesome for people who love house music: Fedde Le Grand, David Guetta, Peter Gelderblom, etc. The club has a pretty nice sound/lighting system, although it pales in comparison to the system at Space in Miami. The go-go girls are a nice touch, as they energize the environment. As usual, the drinks are expensive, and it can get pretty crowded. The girls range from 6s to 9s, and the crowd is very Euro (international, whatever), which I personally like but others may not. I've gone only on Saturday; I think the DJs play more mainstream music on Friday. And there is plenty of parking in the area.
Worst club experience ever. Not only do they have prejudiced, arrogant, and pretentious staff, they lack organization skills as well. When booking my bday party here, not only did they fail to send me a confirmation email, they spelled my name wrong so my people at the door were unable to get in free and did not come thru with drinking bracelets and instead gave us bogus tickes that were good for only a 1/2 hour. When my hispanic friends got there, they gave them tickets to drink for Free, and when my black friends got there, not only were they going to charge them for the bracelets but entrance too. When I went to inquire about the confusion, I was told to "stop complaining, go inside and drink.' When I asked for the manager or to get his name, all staff suddenly not only forgot their own name but their bosses too. Do Not Book a Party Here... The last thing I needed was to be treated like I was nothing on my own birthday... I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone.
A great place for nightlife – An all around fun time. 20$ cover isn't that bad, if your not signed up on their e-mail list then it's half price or free with the text that they send to your mobile.So if your in Chicago for a night or you live any where around the city jump in the car,take a cab or do what ever you need to do to go out and have a great nightlife experience.
Crobar – This place is really, really bad starting with the people working at the door: If you like to wait for hours before you will be let in, pay a lot of money than this is the place your choice.
I hate this place and will never go again. Chicago has much better places to offer.
Had a great time! – I was at Crobar for the cut & paste show a couple of weekends ago. Pretty sure that the trendy design crowd isn't Crobar's usualy clientele but the place was great--the bartenders were fast, the drinks weren't exorbitant (I mean c'mon... this is Chicago, we should be used to 6 dollar beers) and the DJ was bangin. I'll definitely be back for a night of partying with my girlfriends.
