I like this club A LOT.
State of the art sound system, bangin house music on Fridays & Saturdays, strong drinks, go-go dancers, great lighting, and a crowd that's all about dancing.
Sure there is a sprinkling of douchebags throughout the club, but hey, what do you expect after Jersey Shore has inspired the future clubheads of America to become the future douchebags of America right now.
Like I said, I like this place. Awesome homegrown Chicago DJ's that could spin circles around some of these international DJ's--when I see a big name, I expect to see big talent.
I'm not sure what they do here on Sunday nights--I just might have to check that out. Stay tuned for updates!
Booked my Birthday party here GREAT
-Bottle service outstanding, I called in advance got a great price on the phone which was honored when I arrived (which is unheard of in chicago)
-All my guests were free and had no problem at the door
From start to finish had a great night I will be booking my birthday here again next year.
Thank you Ontourage for a terrific night
Not worth it – I had my birthday at Ontourage the other night and it was a horrible experience! The staff were rude, the DJ played awful music that was not worth dancing to, and the drinks were not very good. If we hadn't bought wristbands I definitely would have taken my party somewhere else! Don't waste your money!
Sports Authority & Corrupt Club in Cahoots – I read all 9 negative reviews & 8 positive - half of which were written by the club. Nice. This place is a dive, run by uneducated LOSERS. I actually parked in the Sports Authority Company's-owned parking lot, on Mon. 3/9 during the day. The lot is adjacent to 'Ontourage' but owned by Sports Authority Store. Some A-Hole named Carlos accosted me in the lot about my parking there. He had NO CLUE what he was talking about. I never went into this 2-bit sorry-excuse of a club "Ontourage" (who can't even spell 'Entourage') I went into neighboring Denver-based sports apparel chain Sports Authority @ 12 :15 p.m. & left by 12:25 p.m. When I came out, this low-life putz challenges me in the parking lot, & as it turns out he actually works for this dive "Ontourage'. (Later I learn from S.A. Store Manager Tom McNeff Ontourage gives a 'free' employee to Sports Authority to tend the lot during the day, so the schlocky nightclub can make big $$ off it at night.) I was livid, as this uninformed & misguided 'lot attendant' used profanity with me & threatened me & my car. He's lucky I had enough restraint to not knock him into next week. When I was walking, & was halfway to my vehicle, that is when he started jawing on me with all of this spanglish b.s. he was spewing, about who the hell was I, why did I park there, etc.. I ignored him, because to have turned & addressed his highly improper and vulgar tirade would've been to give this guy an intensive care nap. I let Sports Authority know what was going on with their damn parking lot. They didn't respond for 2 days, & seemed to care less. When they read all of these negative reviews about their damn parking lot, & how it's being used to make money with at night by some unscrupulous craphole of a club, & how people are being ripped off, jacked off, bullied, accosted, & being otherwise screwed by a group of thugs running the second-rate "club" called 'Ontourage' next door -- maybe they will see it's not such a real smart P.R. move??
DO NOT VALET IF YOU VALUE YOUR STUFF!!! – I was invited to Ontourage by a friend & on 7/13 went there & valet parked my 2007 vette!!
I handed my proximity sensor key fob to the valet manager Ciro along with my $$ and then went in the
club for about 1 1/2 hours.
When the valet pulled my vette up my radar detector was missing from my windshield (they did leave 1 suction cup) the car was not broke into (no damage,broken window,cut top) so the only way it could of happened was a INSIDE job!!
I filed a police report at the scene & have had a few conversations with Manuel Feliciano Claims dept
for Valet Parking Service Inc. in wich he tells me thay are not responible because the have a disclaimer on
the valet ticket! So the disclaimer gives them & their employees the right to PILFER & STEAL any items left in your car if you decide to valet with them without fear of recourse or responibility!!!!
The owners of Onterouge are not responible directly ....BUT they do have a choice of what company they use for their VALET service!!!!!
Warning!!! Do not valet your car at any Chicago establishment that uses VALET PARKING SERVICE INC!!!!!
SERIOUSLY – Okay seriously to the girl who was 21 how many clubs have you really been too????? GET OVER IT!!! And to the guy who was over charged why did you pay???? why didnt you say something? Cause that is really the price and you were too cheap to tip. If you call Ontourage 312-573-1470 they will put you on the guest list for free admission, hot chicks, strong drinks!!!!
Wack DJ – I think Ontourage has the worst EXPENSIVE drinks ever. The bartender was very rude and overcharged customers for her tip. The DJ kept playing the same songs over and over and over again. He needs to invest in a larger variety of hits. The small stage with the stripper pole was a nice touch. It's not a very big club. I've seen a ton of better clubs with waaaay better prices. This was a first and last experience for me. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.
Sense This – This is the Straight up facts about the services and Business relations at the nightclub Ontourage. If you are NOT some major VIP player in the Entertainment game DO NOT GO. Ontourage has abandoned the customer service to local Chicagoans. Within my experience I threw a much anticipated MAJOR 21st birthday. I was in constant contact with an employee named JIMMY Z. I drafted two semi-contacts and presented them both in person and via email with the entire night specifics that JIMMY agreed apon prior to my 21st. The Night of my Party?..JIMMY Z was no where to be found. I HAD NO TABLES, NO SERVICES AND ALL MY GUEST HAD TO PAY. The other Ontourage employees were rude and did not give a damn that it was my birthday or what I had discussed prior with Jimmy Z. Not until I agree to PAY $300.00 + did anyone even talk to me. The club was rude to me and my African American guests and again will not carter to you or your event unless your part of Ontourage?s majority ethnic group or are ?somebody? in the industry. Ontourage will soon learn that if you DO NOT show love to the locals their Brand name will GET TRASHED.
in the streets.
Awesome Saturday Nights – This place rocks!! Upstairs they have an awesome lounge area and downstairs there is a dance area with top quality DJs. They hold sweet events on Saturdays and the scene is what would expect from a hot Chicago Nightclub.
I don't ever write reviews but you guys >>>>>>>>>> – I just wanted to share with you guys (The Staff at Ontourage) that I had I GREAT time and you guys treated my party and I like ROCK-STARS. I go out every weekend I haven' t had such a good time in a while. THANKS!
