Letter from The Charlie Club in Chicago.
I can remember many years ago, my wife heard of a great new spot opening on the Michigan Ave. in Chicago, the Charlie Club hotel and athletic center.
The company bought the old Illinois Athletic Club and remade it into a state of the art hotel, restaurant, and 24 hour gym. They had just opened a new four story atrium bar on the 12th floor, so we made reservations for Venetian Night, a Chicago tradition of boats and fireworks in lake Michigan.
We duked the Maitre D’ to get a window seat and had a fantastic evening of cocktails at the window watching a fireworks display seemingly so close you could touch it. We liked it so much we returned the next month.
Upon entering the lobby of this brand new venue this time, however, we now saw a series of velvet ropes herding everyone into single file. Reservations were being checked in the lobby before you could even enter the elevator, and a strict dress code was now being enforced.
The elevator now had it’s own security guard, and once we arrived at the 12th floor, the same host greeted us, only this time he had a broken arm in a cast. The second thing we noticed was that, while it appeared to be full to capacity, faces were now much harder to see in the dark, it then dawned on us that now EVERYONE was black.
The 4 stories worth of stairs were now home to a hundred loiterers, none of which had a drink in their hands, they were packing their own pocket bottles. The waitresses were all idol, clustered together by the bar and very wary. We GTFO and never went back, just like everyone else who never went back, and the Charlie Club was no more shortly after.
The investors who poured millions into the renovations and marketing did not foresee this invasion and had no way of reversing it and it’s effects. This continues to be a problem for high end venues to this day, and has rendered most night spots as no go zones for the average citizen.
