The Underground Chicago Review

By: Emily Bunn × Vaughn Lowery

360 Magazine was invited to Chicago’s most-exclusive nightclub for an evening of merrymaking, music and memories. The Underground Chicago recently reopened last weekend after a fifteen-month lockdown and is yet again revitalizing Chicago’s VIP social scene. The choice club for A-listers– including celebrities like Justin Bieber, UsherLaBron James, David BeckhamWill.I.Am, and Miley Cyrus– The Underground consistently delivers elevated experiences surrounding music, cocktails, fashion, art and design. Entrepreneur and owner of The Underground, Billy Dec, comments on the club’s long-awaited re-opening:

The COVID pandemic has wiped out many live music and nightclub venues across the country,” says Dec. “Historically, nightclubs have had a pivotal role in cultural evolution. The Underground family fought to stay alive and reopen because we see it as a major responsibility—it’s our duty to elevate our community platform so people can come together to celebrate music, fashion, dance, art and design. After an unprecedented and impactful run, we look forward to constantly elevating and innovating our industry and The Underground experience fueled with excitement, creativity, service and positive energy.”

The vibrant ambiance of The Underground reflected the colorful diversity of guests inside, all of which were busy unleashing their signature moves on the packed dance floor. The discotheque throbbed with ecstatic energy and heavy bass lines all night long. A state-of-the-art sound system blared trendy music across all corners of the club for all to hear. The ambiance of the tunes was complimented by thrilling pyrotechnics and digital screens that projected artsy flicks.

Upon arriving at the legendary establishment, 360 Magazine was greeted with service from hospitable, welcoming staff members– including security and a stylish porter. On the particular night we visited, Lil Jon made a star appearance. Lil Jon, the musical mastermind behind releases such as Turn Down for What, Get Low, Cyclone, and Alive (with Offset and 2 Chainz), filled the club with energy and exuberance. Soundscapes swelled across every crowded corner of the club as the rapper delivered an incredible performance.

Lil Jon wasn’t the only celebrity guest, as he performed alongside Emmy award-winning TV host, actor and personality, Billy Dec. Dec also is the restaurateur and owner of the iconic nightclub but is best known for his roles in “Chicagoland,” “Mollywood,” “One Small Hitch,” and “Adventures in the Sin Bin,” among others. Dec has also appearance on many national broadcast programs, including NBC’s Today Show and NBC Today in Nashville.

Looking ahead, Dec is set to open The Underground’s sister venue, The Underground Cocktail Club. Scheduled to open over Lollapalooza weekend (July 30-Aug 1), this new establishment will feature a separate entrance to The Underground’s building and emphasize the nostalgic, vintage appeal of the 1920’s. The Underground Cocktail Club will focus on creating innovative cocktails and featuring more live performances. Next time 360 Magazine comes to Chicago, we can’t wait to have another memorable, lively night at the Underground.

Hotel D’Angleterre Opens to Americans

“Copenhagen Is open to Americans!” said a thrilled Lucas Johannson, General Manager of the city’s grande dame Hotel d’Angleterre, this morning on a phone call to New York. Johansson’s message confirmed the Danish government’s decision to open Denmark to American travelers who have been fully vaccinated for at least two weeks against Covid-19.

For the city’s 266-year-old d’Angleterre, the opportunity to welcome back its traditional number-one source of guests is a major event. Set in the heart of Copenhagen, overlooking King’s Square, and home to the Michelin-starred Marchal Restaurant, the d’Angleterre is not merely the hotel’s most prestigious hotel, but a city landmark, with beautiful views of the city of Copenhagen.

“Welcome to your Danish home!” added Johansson, “we can’t wait to spoil you with our warmth, elegance and deliciousness.”

About Hotel D’Angleterre

Located on Copenhagen’s Kongens Nytorv (The King’s Square), Hotel d’Angleterre has long been the city’s address of choice for royalty, statesmen and the illustrious. The d’Angleterre has had an extremely colorful history, from its origins as a restaurant opened in 1755 by Jean Marchal, to its transformation into the d’Angleterre in 1795, to the opening of the current building in 1875 and its rebuilding just before World War I. The hotel reopened in May 2013, revealing the results of a two-year remodeling and re-imagining: a lighter and more elegant color palette; 90 spacious rooms & suites (created from the existing 123 rooms) plus several amenities including restaurant Marchal helmed by Jakob de Neergaard, Amazing Space Scandinavian spa, and Balthazar, Denmark’s first Champagne bar.

Volbeat – Wait a Minute My Girl & Dagen For

Multi-platinum Danish metal band Volbeat announces the debut of two new songs for Summer,  “Wait A Minute My Girl” and “Dagen Før.” The two tracks, the band’s first new music since 2019’s album Rewind, Replay, Rebound, were written and recorded while the world was in lockdown during the pandemic. Michael, Kaspar and Jon recorded their parts with long-time producer Jacob Hansen in Denmark, while Rob worked remotely from New York. 

The band says about the songs: “As the weather begins to warm and the days get longer in many parts of the world, we wanted to share two songs that we wrote and recorded over these long, difficult fifteen months that have the vibe and feel of Summer. We’re beyond thankful that even during a lockdown our good friends Doug, Ray and Mia Maja were able to put the pedal to the metal with us on ‘Wait A Minute My Girl,’ and we’re absolutely thrilled that Stine Bramsen, who we’ve known and admired for a long time, was willing to lend her incredible talents to ‘Dagen Før.’ We hope you enjoy this double-barreled blast of Summer tunes as much as we enjoyed creating them, and we can’t wait for you to hear what else we have in store for you.”

“Wait A Minute My Girl” features saxophone player Doug Corcoran and piano player Raynier Jacob Jacildo, who both perform with JD McPherson’s band and previously appeared with Volbeat on 2019’s “Die To Live” (feat. Neil Fallon.) Singer Mia Maja, who has worked with the band since Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie, also appears on backing vocals. “Dagen Før” features guest vocals from Danish artist Stine Bramsen, who is known for her solo work as well as being a member of the band Alphabeat. The song, in the tradition of “The Garden’s Tale,” “Maybele I Hofteholder” and “For Evigt,” features both English and Danish lyrics, and marks the first commercially-released song that features Stine singing in her native Danish.

About Volbeat

Since forming in 2001, Volbeat has gone from the clubs of Copenhagen to headlining stages around the world, including the famed Telia Parken stadium in Denmark (and becoming the only domestic artist to ever sell out the venue). Over the course of eight record-breaking albums the band has picked up number one songs (including eight #1s on the US Mainstream Rock chart and counting), multi-platinum certifications, awards and accolades (including a Grammy nomination) all over the planet. Their latest album, Rewind, Replay, Rebound, was released on August 2nd, 2019 and has spawned the hit singles “Last Day Under The Sun,” “Die To Live (feat. Neil Fallon)” and “Leviathan.” 

A live album featuring songs recorded during the subsequent world tour, Rewind, Replay, Rebound: Live in Deutschland, was released digitally on November 27th, 2020. A vinyl-only bonus track compilation, Hokus Bonus, was originally made available on limited-edition vinyl on RSD Black Friday 2020 and will be available in a new, limited European version and a North American standard version on July 16, 2021. The band eagerly await their return to the road beginning this October with an appearance on Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA.

RAMEN & TSUKEMEN TAO Announces Opening of Second Orange County, CA Location 

Tokyo-trained Chef Toshimasa Sano is Excited with the Resurgence of Restaurants and Tourism in Orange County 

WHO: RAMEN & TSUKEMEN TAO restaurant

WHAT: Announces Grand Opening of Its Second Location. Date: April 12, 2021

WHERE: 2143 N Tustin St Ste 1, Orange, CA 92865

WHEN: Monday, April 12, 2021

Japanese Chef Toshimasa Sano opened his second ramen restaurant at 2143 N Tustin St Ste 1 in the City of Orange on Monday, April 12. Chef Sano was trained at the famed Tsujita ramen restaurant in Tokyo and opened his first restaurant RAMEN & TSUKEMEN TAO in Buena Park in August 2019, which the Orange County Register named second on the top 10 Japanese ramen restaurants in Orange County in 2020.

Chef Sano is especially excited to open this second location in Orange County, which can safely serve twice as many customers as the Buena Park location. A new menu will feature vegetarian ramen options as well as ramen dishes made with miso broth, the specialty of Tsujita, which has become an artisan ramen brand that was selected one of the best 10 ramen shops in Tokyo by the readers of Japan Times in 2019.

“Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning made by fermenting soybeans with salt and koji mold. It’s full of probiotics and linked to a variety of health benefits, including a stronger immune system,” Sano said. “I hope to serve this umami-packed miso-based ramen to residents of the City of Orange.”

The new location also has a bigger selection of appetizers and other dishes as well as alcoholic beverages.

Sano’s menu includes five kinds of ramen noodles: His signature miso-based Tsukemen dipping noodle, White Miso Ramen, Red Miso Ramen, Vegetarian Ramen and Savory Chicken Ramen, along with toppings such as Pork Chashu (roasted pork), Soft-Boiled Eggs, Menma (marinated bamboo shoots), Bean Sprouts, Corn, and Spicy Tao (a spicy paste made with garlic and hot chilli paper).

Sano extended non-ramen and appetizer options at this Orange location. They include three types of rice bowls (Chashu, Spicy Tuna, and Takana vegetables), four types of Buns (Pork, Spicy Pork, Chicken and Spicy Chicken) and Japanese favorite Curry Rice. Among the appetizers are Chicken Karaage (Japanese fried chicken), Takoyaki, Agedashi Tofu, Gyoza, Shumai, Seaweed Salad and Tofu Salad. Also new is a Kids Plate.

Responding to numerous customer requests, Sano decided to include Vegetarian Ramen with miso broth and eggless noodles for vegan diners. Another addition to the menu is Savory Chicken Ramen made with chicken broth.

A native of Tokyo’s historical district called Asakusa, Sano moved to California in 2019 to manage the first Ramen & Tsukemen TAO location in Buena Park. He was trained in Tsujita by its founder for 10 years prior to his dream-come-true adventure of owning his own restaurant in the U.S.  

The restaurant has 42 seats and will be open for indoor and outdoor dining Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. -9 p.m. The restaurant is complying with all local guidelines and precautions regarding Covid-19.

Ramen & Tsukemen TAO is on Instagram and Facebook.

Harley-Davidson Museum Reopening

The Harley-Davidson Museum Reopens March 5!
Make plans to visit.

With a new exhibit and new ways to explore – including the all-new Annual Pass – the Harley-Davidson Museum is looking forward to welcoming guests safely back to campus, beginning Friday, March 5th.

“Our team has been eager to welcome our friends and neighbors – safely – back to our campus,” said Bill Davidson, Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum. “With robust health and safety plans in place, we’re confident our guests can comfortably enjoy a visit to our new exhibit, “Off-Road Harley-Davidson,” a bite at MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant or a visit to The Shop for great gifts and collectibles. Together, with our partners across the city, we have been diligently working to make sure we do our part to keep Milwaukee moving in the right direction.”

This is the first step of phased reopening, and City of Milwaukee health officials have approved safety plans for the H-D Museum. Reinforced protocols to support healthy and safe environments for visitors and staff include enhanced cleaning procedures, hand sanitizing stations and online ticketing to ensure social distancing and limiting of capacity levels. Staff and visitors will be required to wear face coverings at all times. Learn more about protocols to support healthy and safe environments.

EXHIBITS
“Off-Road Harley-Davidson” (open now)
In the decades before America paved its highways, early riders had to be prepared for all sorts of terrain: sand, clay or dirt – and wandering those makeshift byways were Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Today, it’s called off-road or adventure touring; back then it was just called riding. Since 1903, Harley-Davidson motorcycles proved their toughness by riding over wooded hills, through stone-choked creek beds and up mountain sides. “Off-road Harley-Davidson” tells the history of motorcycles designed for rough roads, the people who rode them and the adventures they shared.

“Building a Milwaukee Icon: Harley-Davidson’s Juneau Avenue Factory” (open now)
A recently recovered cache of architectural drawings includes plans for the original Juneau Avenue facility. The pencil drawings, along with archival photographs, demonstrate the whirlwind pace of the company’s early growth. While building an international business—going from producing just over 1,000 motorcycles in 1909 to manufacturing 27,000 motorcycles in 1920—the company’s Milwaukee factory experienced near constant expansion. Construction through this relatively brief period created the buildings that today, a century later, are still the proud home of Harley-Davidson.
“Building a Milwaukee Icon” provides a snapshot of Harley-Davidson’s formative years and illustrates a chapter of Milwaukee history when the city was known as the “Machine Shop to the World.”
