Chrome City Introduces Smokey Hollow, Chicago's Premier Nightlife Theater

November 2, 2015

Chrome City is thrilled to be working with Smokey Hollow, Chicago's newest nightlife venue.  Smokey Hollow is now officially open to the public, marking a new wave in the Chicago nightlife and entertainment scene. Chrome City is always seeking innovators in the art, music, and entertainment industries, and Smokey Hollow embodies all three. Enter the era of glamour and intrigue at the intimate nightlife theater that brings the rich essence of the past decades to life through music and live performances. 



Complete with marquee lights, exposed brick walls, rich red velvet curtains, inward facing tables, and a small stage featuring nightly performances, Smokey Hollow pays homage to Chicago’s rich history and decades filled with revelry. Smokey Hollow breaks the mold of River North’s club scene, blurring the lines between club, bar, and live entertainment venue to create a raw, industrial nightlife theater with a vaudeville twist.





"As the nightlife scene evolves in Chicago, guests are looking for something different," said Robbie Schloss of Entertainment Machine, Smokey Hollow's management company.



"Our exclusive environment will provide guests with a nightlife experience unlike any other." Business partner, Ben Foreman, has worked in nightlife venues such as Paris Club and American Junkie and saw a missing piece of the nightlife scene before he began working on the concept with Schloss. "Smokey Hollow is the first of it's kind in Chicago," said Foreman. "Nightlife theater brings an added element to the evening and we have seen this success in cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas."





Entertainment has become and integral part of the nightlife scene, and Smokey Hollow delivers a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience every night that will keep guests on the edge of their seats with acts including but not limited to: magicians, contortionists, impersonators, and more. The nightlife theater will showcase the evolution of entertainment from the late 1800's through the 1900's. Smokey Hollow features a unique art installation by artist Jason Brammer. The steampunk-inspired piece captures the essense of River North's urban industrial history while celebrating the evolution of entertainment over the last century. 



Join us every Thursday and Friday from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., and every Saturday from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. as Smokey Hollow takes the Chicago nightlife scene to new heights. Visit for more information.
