Advice on a good club/lounge

For the foodies that live in the city or enjoy the night life in the city, I need your help finding a place to go out this weekend. We have 10 people with us and were originally considering Enclave, but due to the reviews and anecdotes about the smugness of the bouncer and staff it's off the list.

We are looking to dress up (not too much) as we bid farewell to a friend who leaves on Monday. We're trying to stay in the River North general area, and trying to keep the cover price on the lower side. Any suggestions would be awesome.

  1. Depends what you're looking for: thump, thump, thump and drunk suburbanites at Sound Bar or Excalibur or cool urban hip-hop and more at Funky Budha. I also like Le Passage. If you're a group of 10 guys, your best shot is bottle service somewhere or you'll pay a ton and wait in the freezing cold. I hear that Crimson Lounge in Hotel Sax has been hopping lately.
