This entry-level club in Lincoln Park benefits from the postcollegiate and young professional crowd that’s bored with bars and pubs. It looks like a classy bar up front, but the back room has a Miami hot-spot vibe, with DJs spinning surefire hip-hop party music to fun-loving young folks. You can’t hear or see the clubbing thing from the well-designed front bar, leaving you free to enjoy your gin and tonic in peace.
