Fantastic venue for private parties - An Eventective User from Chicago, Illinois

We hosted a private party and fashion show at The Underground. The stay was incredibly helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They helped manage all aspects of our party from food, music and our fashion show. The DJ for our party was amazing and helped create an awesome vibe. I would absolutely recommend the venue for a private party. It could not have turned out better.
