It’s getting a little difficult to keep up with all the new club openings in the city. Every weekend there seems to be something new.
Well, another new club — with a familiar feel and name — will soon be in the mix. The plans have finally been released for the re-opening of Le Passage (937 N. Rush), a staple of Gold Coast nightlife. The ownership of the club recently changed hands from Rockit Ranch Productions to Three Headed Productions.
The opening — and rebranding — is scheduled for early November. It will now be called “Le Passage Discotheque and The Drawing Room at Le Passage, a culinary cocktail lounge,” according to a press release.
The folks over at All Terrain — led by fellow Street Teamer Brook Jay — is the lead partner on the redesign and re-branding of the space.
According to Brook, the new spot will evoke “the spirit of a traditional drawing room where people share their lives and friendships over sumptuous small plate food, classic cocktails, set in an intoxicating environment of modern, organic luxury.”
A new door on Rush Street will lead patrons down to the Drawing Room, a 55-seat lounge. The cobblestone alley that leads to the entrance you’re probably used to is still there, and will lead to the Discotheque portion.
Three Headed Productions also own Chicago nightspots Cans Bar and Canteen, Evil Olive, Salud Tequila Lounge and Junior’s Sports Lounge as well as bars in Milwaukee and Charlotte.
