Spybar is a Chicago institution, boasting unparalleled nightlife for 18 years and running. This "River North party paradise" according to Rolling Stone Magazine (August 2013), is the perfect cross section between high octane clubbing and intimate lounge atmosphere. The ideal place to catch the world's best DJ talent up close and personal, Spybar has been showcasing superstar caliber names in this downtown Chicago ultralounge for well over a decade. Literally underground, Spybar is 4500 square feet located directly below street level in the heart of the city's nightlife epicenter, featuring minimal chic decor and mod-cluster seating for the ultimate table experience.

NOTE: Due to the volume of submissions/requests we receive, we are not able to listen to mixes or consider acts for booking that are submitted through Facebook.
