This is—we think—Wrigleyville’s only enforced no flip-flops zone, so dig up presentable footwear to get in the door. Once admitted, you’ll find a huge outdoor patio lined with cozy cabanas surrounding a rectangular reflecting pool complete with a waterfall (the perfect setting for, um, flip-flops). You’ll also find unnecessarily loud Top 40 music echoing off two large bars, each of which offers an unexpectedly long list of craft beers, 20-ounce cocktails and martinis. Past another bouncer and up the escalator (yes, escalator) lies the dimly lit Diamond Club, where Chads with half-buttoned shirts grind up against stilettoed and scantily clad Trixies. Are we in River North or Wrigleyville?
