Report for Detention

In high school, the kids in detention knew how to have the most fun. On Chicago’s Division Street, nothing has changed.

Detention, a 5,500 square-foot club and ultra-lounge themed around a high school detention hall, is setting a new standard for Chicago’s club scene. The rock maple floor, blue walls and exposed brick will make you feel like you’re inside a high school gymnasium. But the comparisons stop there — few high schools feature a 3000 square-foot dance floor, a state of the art sound system blasting hip-hop, house, mashup and top-40 tracks, and five stripper poles throughout (two located on top of the main bar).

But the dynamic and unique ambiance is only half the story. Detention’s real draw is their VIP bottle service, arguably the best Chicago has to offer. The key here is customizing your experience. The club features three VIP areas to choose from — two above the main floor near the DJ both, and another VIP balcony that overlooks both Division Street outside and the dance floor within. Beyond that, Detention’s custom-made furnishings and design layout can accommodate both small, private parties, or up to 400 guests for your next massive blowout.
