Free dance party in the Upstairs Lounge!
Meet Me Upstairs is a free, weekly dance party held in the Upstairs Lounge at Schubas. The event takes place on Fridays from 9pm to 1am. All are welcome.
We’re sure the summer of 2006 is remembered for many things, but none as important as the official launch of Stay Smooth; Chicago’s original purveyors of ’70s AM Gold, ’80s FM Rock, and Contemporary Smooth Gems.
What began as some friends hanging out upstairs at Schubas, soon became some friends hanging out on a moored yacht, a tall ship, Anita Dee 1 AND 2, various Chicago rooftops and bars and the occasional parking lot.
The scene may have changed, but DJs STV SLV, Kriz Baronia, and MR always keep the flame alive.
