Need help with a great birthday dinner/dance restaurant, no stuffiness allowed!
I was so sad when Jilly's Retro closed. We would eat at the piano bar ( and order great champagne) when we were celebrating something and then head downstairs to Jilly's Retro. I have no idea why it closed when it was packed every weekend. I live in Columbus, Ohio and work in Chicago, so friends and myself will be there next weekend to celebrate a birthday. Any ideas on where to go for good food and great fun---which would include dancing? Yes, we love disco...LOL.... We can travel to anywhere in Chicago....Thanks so much, Karen
If you go elsewhere before or after dinner for dancing, it will open up a whole lot of options for you. A restaurant like Carnivale, Nacional 27, or DeLaCosta would be suitable for a festive birthday dinner, then go elsewhere afterwards. All feature Latin fusion cuisine and a hip, celebration atmosphere. And they're downtown with plenty of nightlife within walking distance (or at worst a short cab ride).
I highly recommend Tango Sur -- great atmosphere, BYOB (nice for a birthday celebration if you want to bring champagne, wine, etc.) and wonderful selection of Argentinian meats and sides. You'd have to go elsewhere for dancing, but Tango Sur woud be a great place to start the night.
