The final piece of the former Spin Nightclub puzzle is SEVEN Dance Club, set to open at the end of June at 3206 N. Halsted St., Windy City Times has learned.
SEVEN will feature an array of live entertainment and what it is promoting as Chicago's best DJs seven days a week.
SEVEN is the third and final establishment housed in the now-closed Spin, and the space has reportedly been completely gutted and rebuilt with top-of-the-line sound and visuals. Manhole is back, open yet again, along with newcomer The Den Cocktail Bar, a 1920s men's social-club lounge with cocktails curated by Elixir's Vlad Novikov, and recipes from the Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book. Manhole, which caters to the leather and fetish crowd, complete with a dress codeor lack thereof, some may say, in reference to clothingalso features offerings for sale from Full Kit Gear.
Spin, of course, was a longtime Boystown landmark, certainly known for the gigantic rainbow flag that hung from the building during Prideand it closed in May 2014. Spin owner David Gassman sold the venue to new owners, both straight, who opened Chloe's and Whiskey Trust.
However, both clubs failed; despite signage, they are long gone, now just part Boystown lore.
LKH Management now runs Manhole, The Den and SEVEN as well as Hydrate, Replay Beer & Bourbon, Halsted's and Elixirall in Boystown.
"Sean Kotwa has been leading the effort to create what is going to be the newest, most exciting destination on Halsted Street, and we really look forward to introducing more [about SEVEN] very, very shortly," Mark Liberson, president of LKH Management, said June 20 while working at Pride Fest.
Liberson would not expand on why it is being called SEVEN.
A 30-second promotional video for SEVEN says nothing of Chicago or the space but, rather, teases things associated with seven, such as days, chakras, seas, wonders and sins.
LKH also is opening a new Elixir and Replay in Andersonville, and both are expected to open in late July or early August, Liberson said.
