Volkan Chicago



Folks on the South and Southwest sides don’t need to travel all the way to Rush Street just to go dancing. Instead, they can just visit this enormous, three-level club, popular with locals, budget-conscious club-goers and, especially, the 18-and-over crowd.

Located across the street from Mi Tierra restaurant, Volkan is separated into three rooms, each of them with a different feel and style of music. One room is dedicated to hip-hop, reggaeton, and funk, while another offers fans of rock en espanol a place to hang out. Both rooms bookend a massive main floor, complete with a stage for live acts, an enormous dance floor, and state-of-the-art lighting. Volkan addresses the normal concerns of an 18-and-over nightclub by enforcing a strict dress code: no sneakers, Timbaland boots, or other “street gear” popular with gangs is allowed. Rental sneakers and other attire are available from the coat check attendants. The cover charge is usually a flat $5 for men and women before 10 p.m., which gives attendees more money to spend on drinks.
