Chez has a unique history in Chicago. Our inspired namesake, The ChezParee was a Chicago nightclub known for its glamorous atmosphere, elaborate dance numbers and top entertainers. It operated from 1932 until 1960 in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago. The club was the epitome of the golden age of entertainment, and it hosted a wide variety of performers, from singers to comedians to vaudeville acts. The address is now home to Chez, our lovely contemporary event space named in homage to the original Chez Paree.
