I was sad,to read,some reviews. As I Visited the Chicago Norwich,for the first time,on Thurs. 10/8/2011, for the Karaoke. I found a really friendly, atmosphere, and a appreciating crowd. and a Top Rate, Quality "Kings Karaoke",Sound System present. I had a really good time, Thanks to all."Mr Vampire".

Dirty, smelly and disappointing. This is not the place I remember. It was not very busy but took over 15 mins to get a drink. The bar staff were unsure what drinks they served and when I asked for champagne to celebrate an event I was presented with a bottle of sparkling rubbish @ £10!!! The toilets had no locks on the doors and no toilet paper, hardly what you would expect at 9.30pm! We didnt even finish our drinks. Clean up and you might get some punters!

After the refurb thought this would be a great venue for a work do of 27. Oh boy how wrong I could be! Even though I had booked 2 weeks in advance they only had a trainee chef on that night hence all the food was cold and only some dishes arrived. They tried to sort it out but at best they waived the charge for food and gave us 4 complimentary bottles of some champagne substitute! The only one redeeming feature was the low cost drinks. Suffice to say work mates were very merry and forgot about the shoddy food. Tunes were cheesy, cliental ropey but a good night out considering I spent under a tenner!

Chicagos - what a big mistake! Don't worry, I'm one of it's biggest fans but the re-fit was completely unnecessary and smacks of the corporate direction an established venure of Norwich can suffer from (new slug and lettuce anyone?). The music is not a strong point and it's capacity is small - so why is it still so popular... the people. You'll meet friendly faces who you can talk to, the bouncers are discreet and the drinks aren't too expensive. Chicagos rides the criticism levelled at it with ease but it has been bruised by it's modernisation. It may attract a large, young and trendy crowd on a Thursday now but another sucker punch such as a new Brannigans could floor this old legend of Norwich as it trys to move on from it's faithful crowd and it's soul.

You can have a laugh here but the modern refurbishment cant hide that this is one hell of a messy meat market. Fine if you like that kinda thing.

I really wouldn't give it 1 star - the worst place in Norwich, the men are so ugly and Neandathol, girls only go here if you want to meet a buffoon, I got nipped, kicked, groped and my foot stood on because the guys don't know how to treat a girl, the dancefloor is full of idiots and the music is rubbish - stay away! I've never felt compelled to write a review, but it's so bad - I want to warn you, it should be free, I paid £7 to get in, that adds insult to injury - Norwich clubs are a rip-off Chicago's is the worst!

This is the worst place i've ever been! Dirty, smelly, tatty. The place is really not nice. The people it contains unfortunately are similar to the surroundings. I can't believe they would charge an entry fee. On the positive side, it is character building!

A spiritual home of mine but sadly the crowds don't seem to flock here like they used to. If 80's music and a great atmosphere is your thing then Chicago's is the place to be - just don't be surprised to bump into your granny here!

I love cheesy nights out with the girls but this place is getting so dated! Will only often stagger in here after a handful of wines!
