Great club! – What a club!! Loved it! Had the best b-day party a girl could ask for!
Waitstaff is hot, we were in the VIP room. Very cool! Never waited on anything our waitress was on point!!!... Even the bus staff was on point! Great music!!! Drinks flowing, security was good.
Will be back rolling VIP style is the only way to go in this club... well for this girl that is! : )
Just OK... – I have been to CABARET only once and it was OK. The staff was nice and it was kinda crowded. The music isn't that great, too hip hop for me. No line outside to wait which is good but also a bad sign. No one I know likes to go there so we avoid it. I guess it is not the place to hang in Chi-Town.
Rude staff, over priced drinks, nowhere to sit – This is the biggest rip off in Chicago and it angers me that this place tries to take advantage of tourists coming to Chicago. The staff is extremely rude, there is nowhere to sit unless you buy a bottle of bad champagne for $300 and the drinks otherwise are way over priced. There are so many other great clubs in Chicago, avoid this place at all costs.
Trendy - something for everyone who loves all things GLAM – This place is a lot of fun - no better way to sum it up. Once you walk in, its the first thing you want to do is say "What happens here, stays here". Check it out.
all around awful experience – First off let me say that this place is awful. From the attitude outside to the waitstaff inside. Cabaret is nothing but a hoax. My girlfriends and I waited 45 minutes outside to finally pay a $20 cover and walk into an empty room. Why? There is no place to sit, unless you buy a bottle of overpriced alcohol and the wait staff is rude and lazy. They spent most of the evening parading around wearing almost nothing at all, smoking cigarettes and seemed to be bothered when asked where the coat check was. We were hoping that the music would be better than the typical hip-hop cheese fest that was played all night. Anybody care to hear "gold digger" 3 times in 2 hours? Some of the worst "non-dance music" I've ever heard in a nightclub. Not to mention the management was rude when we asked about the non existant cabaret show that was promoted but never went on. Ladies stay clear of this place, unless you enjoy being treated rudely and paying $9 for a drink.
Not worth the hype – Waited about 30 min to get in, only to pay $20 cover. The fashion show wasn't even a real fashion show. Decor is nice, but that's about all it has going for it. Music was ok and the bouncers act like they are more tough than they actually are.
Best Bar For Glamour and Scene in the Second City – Cabaret is worth every penny of the cover. It's very rare in Chicago or New York to be able to find a club as intimate as Cabaret with the glamour. High style abounds with a DJ who knows what to play to keep things hot. Desireability is everywhere from the clientele to the staff. The drink options are endless and for the uncreative, the variety of specialty bars do the hard work for you. Oh, and ladies, Cabaret is not all for men with scantily clad cocktail waitresses. The male bartenders are gorgeous. Excellent eye candy. I will be going here again and again. As Paris Hilton would say "It's Hot".
This place is awesome, all the time! – Great spot to hang out at. The music is sick the bartenders are hot, and you will always have a good time?
Too much attitude – There are many other bars I will opt to go to after experiencing Cabaret. I have never seen so many posers and worse yet- big attitudes. The fact there's no seating at the bar or anywhere for that matter because you have to pay big bucks for a booth- I will pass. Drinks were expensive and the doormen were extraordinarily rude. $20 cover? Please- this isn't New York. I will not be back.
Less than impressive – Huge disappointment. I was expecting something much better...considering the hype. The staff fell way below Chicago nightlife standards.....especially because the are scantily clad. The should revamp and start over.
