Fantastic evening hosted by Grace who showed us 3 fantastic cocktails, she even gave me the recipes and looked after us all night! There was only 4 of us, there was so much drink left, we didn't have to buy any more all night. Grace even said we don't have to queue at the bar if we wanted more! Brilliant

I've been to Chicago's many a time and have had some good nights in here but unfortunately waiting 40 minutes for extortionate rates for a drink is ridiculous. The same dreary songs play spoiling the night a little. Think the place needs a make over in more ways than one.

The place is ok, nothing out of this world, but we would have had a great night if it wasn't for the absolutely terrible and unprofessional DJ! Unbelievable how bad music can ruin everything. We asked him to play more dance like songs as he was feeding us with this crap like something that you really can't dance to never... More

If u like going clubbing to a club where u can't get served at the bar for at least half hour then this is the place to be. I wouldn't mind if they were busy but the bar was pretty clear plenty of space around the bar. The staff was miserable and very slow. #notgood

Highly recommended for all popcorn fans out there. A mixture of both salty and sweet, enough to fill your boots! Standard of females: 7.5 out of 10 average with low percentage of upper class degrees, but hey, who's counting? Best night in Basildon.

What a lovely place for a cheap cocktail and laugh! The wait for a drink can get a bit long and the floors can get a little sticky (as all clubs do) but the music is great and much nicer than the usual clubbing scene in Essex!
