WORST place in Chicago!!! Spend your money somewhere else – DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY AND PATRONIZE THIS PLACE!!!! A co-worker and I decided to try this place out for the first time and what a HUGE MISTAKE that was. First off the bartender LAURA is a witch that should not be working with the public and needs to be in a dark basement somewhere where she outta sight & outta mind. We ordered a drink and I didn
Plush is a nightmare – I live by Plush and it is a neighborhood nuisance. This place attracts a crowd of disrespectful LOUD and violent people. As the club is closing, patrons are spilling out into the street screaming and honking car horns. They litter around the streets and get into fights. There was actually a murder last week. Plush is causing headaches for hundreds of people in the area. The cops are there all the time, doesn't seem like much fun to me. The owner is not a nice guy. He is a liar and is too much of a coward to take responsibility for the trouble his establishment is causing. I wouldn't go here if I were you, unless you want a crappy expensive drink, get beat up, oh, and possibly shot.
MAN KILLED OUTSIDE PLUSH – DON'T GO HERE. PLUSH HAS BROUGHT A BAD CROWD AND DESPITE MANY COMPLAINTS TO THE POLICE, IT HASN'T NOT BEEN SHUT DOWN. NOW SOMEBODY GOT SHOT TO DEATH AT 1:30 AM THIS MORNING (8/31/10). I HOPE IT GETS SHUT DOWN!

What a joke!! – My friend had her birthday there on Sat 7-17-10. We get to the door and one of the guys we came with had on a dressy white V neck shirt on. They did not want to let him in, so we had to call the people who were already inside to verify they had a table, which they would end up having to buy a bottle for. Then the bouncer takes the guy to the side and tells him he is going to let him in but he will have to pay him $20.00 on his way out. Whatever!!! So we walk in and there are 4 men wearing white T SHIRTS... According to the people that were inside they were told the bottle was going to be $100 but then the waitress comes back after 30 mins and said it would be $200 for the bottle. The DJ started playing some retarded music and made a announcement that he would keep on playing the musice because the bar was not making any money. I give this place a -F. STAY AWAY ON A SAT NIGHT
99% African-American (pics on website are misleading) – I checked out Plush's website prior to going. The website is full of pictures of white people. Then I went there and it was 99% African-American.
CREEPSHOW – I was walking by this place the other night to check it out, but as I walked up, some assh*le said, "look, here comes Mr. Rogers," which drew a couple of laughs from the peanut gallery. (Hey, d*ckhead, this Mr. Rogers can bust your fat face open.) If your idea of a great night out involves hanging out with a bunch of ignorant racist thugs who think trash like that is funny, this is the place for you. Maybe the jerk-off was jealous 'cuz the honeys outside were checking me out, but who wants to waste time and money on stupidity like that. I can get better drinks and better atmosphere at a dozen other places only a short drive away. What passes for class to some people is really dumbfounding.
Great specials, hot crowd! – I was always skeptical of this place due to the reviews. I live close to this location, and finally decided to check it out. Well let me tell you that the reviews were so wrong! The food was awesome! The service was top notch! I went there on a wednesday, which is half off all appetizers and $ 5 martinis, which there is about 25 diff kinds. The crab cakes and spinach and artichoke dip are out of this world. The peartini and the vegas pink kitty is something everyone should try once in their life time. The decor is really nice. Six plasma tv's with sports games and then changed to old school music videos. All in all you should really stop in and enjoy what i got to enjoy.
Somewhat spacious lounge, horrible staff – i ususally go to the bar accross the street. Actually, I never really thought much of this place. There were a couple times when the "girls of Plush" would come in and buy cigarettes wearing next to nothing (usually high heels or boots and nothing but a "teddy" on) and would obviously get the attention of the guys. So when me and a friend of mine reconnected, we decided to check this place out after couple rounds at the bar accross the street. We went it and I thought it looked like a decent sized "lounge style" place, featuring a dj mixing old school hip hop music videos. To my surprise, there weren't alot of people as I thought. Probably the only action was a group of Asians (possibly an Asian soroity from nearby UIC) having a night out. Too bad they weren't attractive at all. But anyway, I guess the only plus of the night was my friend bought for the entire night. That is until the last round. my interaction with the bartender was horrible. I don't think she got our drinks correct and also there was a $20 dollar minimum when I attempted to charge on my card (thanks for not telling me). So, I ended up wasting money on drinks I didn't even want (but drank anyway) and thus what would've been a 3 star rating becomes 2. So, WHERE WERE THOSE GIRLS THAT USUALLY WEAR NEXT TO NOTHING THAT NIGHT?!?! Trust me, I was pretty much bored to tears that night and if those ladies showed up...well, I wouldn't rate this place so low now, whould I?
Super place HOT WOMEN TOTALLY FUNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!! – The food was awesome? The service was great? Had a super fun time!!!!!!
Would definitely recommend to friends !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please go and see for yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great Time And Great Food – Last week I decided to give Plush a try, and let me tell you it was well worth it. I came in on a Friday night around 8pm. Right when I walked inside I knew it was going to be a great time. From the friendly greeting I got from the man at the door to the great looking Mid 20's to 30's crowd I knew this was my new spot. I sat down at my table on these huge plush couches made with red velvet, the table was coated in a red glitter which I thought was pretty cool. The waitress asked me what I would like to drink and recommended their martinis, so I looked over the martini list and let me tell you there are a lot to chose from my favorite was the Vegas Pink Kitty a martini that she told me was created by the owner. For dinner I started with the crispy calamari it was amazing probably the best I have had in the city, for my main course I picked the salmon which was the special of the night, It blew me away. Finally to my surprise around 10:00pm a DJ came in and the vibe changed people were singing and dancing and having a great time. All in all I came for dinner and drinks at 8pm and stayed till 2am in the morning if your looking for a one stop shop this is it from a relaxing dinner restaurant to transforming into a lounge, it has everything you need to have a great night on the town.
