Smart Bar

Originally on the fourth floor of the magnificent Wrigleyville building (also home to Metro), this venerated dance club is now in the basement. A makeover in 2006 slicked up the looks a notch and brought back a vibrant young crowd. But more important, the club boasts a world-class Funktion One sound system, which sounds tremendous on the central dance floor. Cutting-edge DJs from Europe, Detroit and Chicago form the bulk of the weekend bookings with house, techno and electro styles; but local mash-up and indie jocks rule on bargain weekday nights.

I was totally surprised by the sheer number of people who were ready to dance—for many hours—at Smart Bar. The basement venue is definitely a fun place to go out with a group if you're looking to have a few drinks and break a sweat.
