  • I love that this club was able to find a way to make it work and fit so well because it really turned out great and I love the location as well as the room
  • I found the service at the bar to be pretty slow though and the girl that I got did not know how to make the drink that I asked for, but seemed to know how to make the most common drinks just fine
  • The other bartender was definitely a little more experienced and knew the drink I wanted right away so I didn't have to tell him how to make it which was nice
  • As soon as I found a bartender that I could work with I did a lot better at Religion and I have never had a problem like that again so I don't know if the girl is there anymore or if I have just gone on nights that she isn't on
  • The DJ is always watching the crowd to see if they are enjoying the music and if not he is quick to phase it out and come in with something new which I like because too many DJs are arrogant and overconfident with their music and don't bother trying to keep the crowd

      Religion Nightclub in Chicago has taken over the spot that was the top level of Club 720, mostly an underused room that was large enough for a club spot of its own but never used properly. I love that this club was able to find a way to make it work and fit so well because it really turned out great and I love the location as well as the room. Religion kind of plays off the interior of the building and its name to make the place look great and the crowd feel comfortable.

      I have been to Religion a few times now and I am hoping that the clientele grows as they find out about the club and come to enjoy it. At first it seemed to be going kind


      of slowly and not very many people were coming out, but the last couple times it looks like it has gotten better and the dance floor has been full which is what I love.

      The club has worked with the brick walls and tall Gothic looking windows to turn the place into dark, cloaked theatrical looking places of sorts, which works really well. My favorite part about the whole club was the DJ booth though that is placed high up against one of the tall brick walls and made to look like a wooden organ stand in the back of a church. This is another example of them playing with the whole church and religion thing without outright showing it.

      I found the service at the bar to be pretty slow though and the girl that ...


      • I got did not know how to make the drink that I asked for, but seemed to know how to make the most common drinks just fine. I found this kind of irritating and decided to try out the other bartender because what good is one if she can’t mix established drinks much less come up with some of her own. The other bartender was definitely a little more experienced and knew the drink I wanted right away so I didn’t have to tell him how to make it which was nice.

        As soon as I found a bartender that I could work with I did a lot better at Religion and I have never had a problem like that again so I don’t know if the girl is there anymore or if

        I have just gone on nights that she isn’t on. Anyway, as for the in-house DJ and the music and dancing scene it does pretty well for itself. The DJ is always watching the crowd to see if they are enjoying the music and if not he is quick to phase it out and come in with something new which I like because too many DJs are arrogant and overconfident with their music and don’t bother trying to keep the crowd. This is not a place were too many people go to dance though, more to have the music to move too but they are really there for the scene and the people. It works well though because it never seems too crowded nor too empty to get comfortable in.
