This is Chicago's hottest nightclub. This venue has Insomniac backing them up to bring the best in the industry for Chicago EDM lovers. Insomniac was at Vision but more suited for Enclave. This venue cater's to the top 100 DJ EDM lovers but not a V Live crowd. Bottle service is a must!!! The crowd is Sheik Upscale Coutore if you know what I mean! Leaving from Insomniac former house Vision Nightclub joining the Enclave House Team is Maverick Williams. Honing his talent and skills catering as "YOUR CONCIERGE TO NETWORKING," bringing the best crowds of EDM lovers and bottle service clientel to Enclave from Both Sound-Bar Fridays and Vision Saturdays to create the best events, at least one every so often, where the Rock music and EDM (Electronic Dance Music) is Live at the best venue in Chicago. Going? Let's attend these venues together. Please join this movement and tell your friends to help us grow and Experience A Dream, Live A Memory! If you are Industry who does this type of events, let me know. The more of us, the more explosive these events will be. A great way to meet new friends! Password=Maverick
THE BACK OF THE BUS AT ENCLAVE CHICAGO – l Check out the full review of Autum's Birthday Party. A very interesting piece. The 8R8 on Blogger.
Waste of time – Went there on a Saturday night with 2 friends, paid $12 for valet, in line a little after 10, waited in the freezing cold for almost 2 hours and never got in. Don't be naive and think that rsvping means anything at this place. It's all abt appearance so if u look like u have just ended a shift at the strip club and didn't have time to change out of ur costume, head straight to the front of the line because there is a 99.9% chance ur gonna get in for free. They should rename the place 'Dreamhouse' due to all the barbies walking in and out of this place.Oh and fake id's are apparently ok too since we heard the girl next to us say she was underage but the bouncer glanced at her outfit, THEN her id and her group of friends were in.
This place is definitely not for women with low self esteem either. These girls were begging to get in after being given the run around abt who they were letting in and what line they should be in. The bouncer preceeded to tell them they weren't going to get in anyway and walked off. In all honesty I'd rather be told upfront that I'm not dressed trashy enough to get in then wait at the front of the line, in the middle of winter for an hour to be ignored and told there is a $40 cover when the place is only going to open for another hour and a half.
Srsly, grow a pair and be upfront abt ur BS instead of wasting ppl's time. U don't want certain ppl in ur establishment, say that sh!t on ur website. If this place manages to stay open until another year with this piss poor service I'll consider giving them another star because that would be nothing short of a miracle.
A def no! – My boyfriend and I went to Enclave for a holloween party and was told on the phone that we could pay at the door. All we had to do was arrive a little eariler than when it opened. So we arrived and were fifth in line, and headquaters told us the ticket price but when we got to the door we were ten dollars short, they had lied to us and trhwn for ten dollars wouldntr let us in! They woulndt even talk to or let us talk to the person in charge! I wouldn't have minded paying the extra ten if I had it on me! But we were told completely wrong, and they were very rude and seemed a bit stuck up about it. I don't think I'll ever return.
The bigest mistake ever – Me, my boyfriend and a lot of our friends used to go there every week since last Saturday. We order a Johny Walker black label like every time but last week they served us something between poison and shit. It was disgusting. I've had some fake alcohol before but this was amazing. Not even close to a scotch taste. We will never go there and I will tell ANYBODY which I know. I already told about 30 people and post this in 10 web sites and I will post it in every site witch contains the name En Clave. I'll do anything possible to send a kind of inspection there. I can wait to get in somewhere but I will not anybody try to poison me with that cheap kind of alcohol.
Very disappointed and Non-Patriotic – I say don’t go… – I am disappointed for the lack of patriotic behavior. My boyfriend (US soldier stationed at Kuwait) was here for the weekend. We decided to take him Enclave. We waited in line like everyone else. I noticed the bouncers/ receptionist/ employees were letting their friends in…after 20min I spoke to security / bouncers and asked them if they would let us in, since my soldier is here for only the weekend. The security said they’ll “see” what they can do…and after 20 more minutes they did nothing. Of course, we left went to Spy-bar – LePassage which “Welcomed home the soldier”
Don't Bother... – ENCLAVE sucks... not only is it a bitch to find, since most of the lights dont work... then we paid $12.00 for parking stood in line for 45 minutes before one of the bouncer/doormen finally spoke to us and said that its over capacity, and that they were only letting table service in. sooooo not only did we drive from the burbs, paid valet, and froze our butts off we didnt even get in!!!
Believe me ENCLAVE will know they messed with the wrong crowd!!!!!
Just an FYI...
(Now this page makes you give them a rating... ENCLAVE doesn't deserve a single star...)
Dont bother! – My friends and I RSVP for the fashion show last night.. we arrived early approx 10 ish. There was three people in front of us, two ladies and a man. We stood approx 15 mins when the two ladies in front of got carded and the doorman later told them your name is not listed, the ladies said we RSVP.. the doorman said we cant do nothing about it.. the doorman was a true a**hole, we tried getting his attention politely and he ignores you as if he's HOLY! He then later carded the man in front of us who had a confirmation printed out, he was too decline! before my friends and i got carded two blonde wannabee barbies walked away from the club and stated outloud to the doorman who rejected the people ahead of us stated "the guy is checking I.D.s" By the time we got carded they said are names wasnt on the list as well when we RSVP! Pretty much the doormen picks and chooses he wants in EVEN UNDER AGE girls.. obviously this club discriminates and prefers those they want regardless if your name is on the list.. i hope they get caught for letting under age people in!!!
HORRIBLE!! – **DO NOT GO TO THIS PRETENTIOUS PLACE!!!!!! I am surpirised they are still open, though I am sure they are not going to last much longer....It will NOT matter if you put yourself on the list....you will still wait for hours before they let you in (if they do) and will charge you $40 to get it. The bouncers are a joke!! They act like they are protecting the White House!!! This place gives Chicago a bad name....there are plenty of hot spots in Chicago....GO TO THEM!!!! This place does not deserve your $$$!!!!
Ok, if you can get in – Last year a friend of mine who works at a radio station took me to Enclave. I enjoyed it and looked forward to going back. My friend and I went last night, or rather, attempted to go. I get emails from them every week so I knew to RSVP for free admission. We got there at 10:40 just to be safe. We stood outside in the 5* temperature until 11. They wouldn't let us in and told us it would be another half hour, at least, and they were going to charge us the cover! We were in line with about 30 other people, most of them girls! They also told the guys in front of us they would get them all in for $40 a head! We all left. I don't see this place staying in business long when they turn away large groups of girls. Guys aren't into other guys, or maybe they are. The really sad thing is this is the third time this has happened to me! Bad, bad, bad!
