We’re not sure what an “ultra-lounge” exactly means, but Bon V is certainly upping the nightlife ante in Chicago. Secure one of the massive booths lining the walls for you and your posse to dance and drink with room to spare. Attentive waitresses make bottle service worth the price tag, not to mention views perfect for celeb-spotting. Make sure to check out the more intimate second-floor loft, too, where you can enjoy DJ beats while scoping out one of the sexiest late-night crowds around.
