We heard you’re gearing up for a little live music this weekend.


Maybe a little dancing.


Maybe a little champagne in a place that deals in absurd quantities of it.

Sure, why not.

By all means, meet Prysm, a new club in the old Crobar space offering your standard debauched-night-in-Vegas vibe. It opens tonight in Lincoln Park, and here’s your slideshow.

Lots of angular mirrors in here. And shiny things. And champagne buckets. And colored lights. And a 5am closing time on Saturday night. And, yep, that all sounds about right for a place called Prysm.

When you enter, you’ll confront a giant stage where some big-name DJ will be doing what big-name DJs do. The best thing to do is reserve a table across from that stage. Safely ensconced, order a Nebuchadnezzar or a Balthazar or something bubbly and just relax. Enjoy.


Make your way upstairs, where you’ll be rewarded with a perch to look down on the crowd below.


Slip into the Den, the private lounge hidden behind dark paneling and a ridiculous amount of doorknockers.


Just sort of hang out and be a person.

Chris LaMorte’s favorite lapel: peak. Favorite bulldog: French. Can you offer him a glass of champagne: yes. Often mistaken for: Zach Galifianakis. Often mistakes himself for: Bradley Cooper.
