Success! Thanks for posting your review of Exit. You’ve done the world some good today.

Great club for those not into 'normal'

EXIT looks intimidating to lots of people. The bar is a goth/metal/punk/S&M/God knows what I'm missing bar. But, if you are into that crowd, EXIT is up your alley.

However, even if you are not into that scene, EXIT is still a fun place to go once in a while. Thursdays are particularly interesting as on the second floor you can watch some professional dominatrixs give people some pleasure and pain, or pay the

What dancing?

OK....I hadn't been to The Exit in a good 8 years. I was just there on Saturday Feb. 17th 2007. What a difference. Apparently the city of Chicago re-zoned the area into what is basically classified as a ""no dance club zone"". So I digress.....there is really no longer dancing at The Exit. The music was also turned down MUCH lower than I remember on my previous visits. Tables and chairs were placed on what I remembe... view more

great atmosphere, decent people, expensive/weak drinks

This place is a great place to dress however you like and not be afraid of sticking out like a sore thumb!! Great DJ music, different themes every night - $5 cover after 9? on weekends. The crowd seems generally cool. The only con is the drinks can get expensive and they are made really weak! though they do have drink specials on the weekdays, such as $2 black-and-blue beers...enjoy! ;)

The best!

If you are looking for the alternative scene, Exit is the best bar in Chicago. Downstairs always plays punk rock and some heavy metal. Great music that, even though is loud, still creates an athmosphere that is good to hang out with friends and meet other people. Upstairs is the dance floor and the music they play will depend on the night. It ranges from Industrial Goth, Heavy Metal, Punk... The music is super loud a... view more

Long time

It's been more than a year since I've been to Exit. But what I do remember is that I loved the music, atmosphere, and the staff. I've never been to a bar that the staff was so courtious. Today is my birthday and I'm planning on making an appearence there this Saturday. Hopefully with a big group.
