Parliament Right

A Grand Hall of Excess in River North

None 8 Photos Parliament
When you go out, you don’t need to be treated like royalty.

Being treated like any old member of the ruling elite is fine.

So you’ll probably like this place: Parliament, an opulent house of champagne-sipping lords and ladies, slated to open next Friday in River North.

Get ready. This is one of those places. A big-night-out place. With girls dancing on banquettes and people ordering 21 bottles of champagne. We assume you’re familiar.

If you come early, go through the alley and take a glass-walled elevator up two levels to the rooftop deck called (naturally) the Kensington. Relax. Have a martini. Watch the sunset. Think nice thoughts.

When it’s dark, take the elevator back down to the first floor. To the left: a private VIP lounge named the House of Lords, a huge champagne chiller and a thumping baseline. Straight ahead: the main room with giant corner booths, a central seating area (for extroverts) and a crystal chandelier.

At this point: consider ordering The 21 Champagne Salute, which is where 21 bottles of champagne are delivered to your table while LED lights go crazy and two giant screens play a video of swirling images.

So, you know... understated.
