The first time I went to The Shrine was for a Drake after party back in the winter. The first thing I loved about it was the album wall they have when you first walk in. Theres pictures on thier website of it; it's a giant wall that extends through the hall of different album covers of influencial artist. I spent about 20min just starring at it.
The club is beautiful. The whole African motifs are something you don't see in clubs in Chicago.
One thing that keeps me coming back to The Shrine is that no matter if it's a slow night or busy as hell the staff is always on top of their game. I go to a lot of clubs but keep going back to the Shrine because of that.
I really enjoyed myself at The Shrine on Janurary 8th. The atmosphere was refreshing & the customer service was pretty good but crowd control needs to be more forceful without being rude!!! WGCI was in the building, great music:). Well be back for futher events, is very excited to see Bilal March 5th, one of my favorite soul artists.

I attended the Amel Larrieux show and was pretty disappointed with the organization and professionalism of the club's staff.
The doors did not open on time and when questioned the staff was rude and offered no information. They seemed to be under the mis-impression that they were doing paying customers a favor by keeping them waiting in the cold. Once in the club, it was standing room only and the crowd was forced to wait three hours for a thirty-eight minute concert.
There is also a sign outside the club reminding its patrons to be ""regal"". This note seems particularly condescending at a club that caters to African-Americans but is white owned.
