Description: Paris Club Bistro & Bar serves classic French cuisine in the heart of downtown Chicago. Plush leather booths, rich wood paneling and antique brass create an intimate dining room reminiscent of Paris' most iconic bistros. At the main bar, an extensive cocktail program offers timeless aperitifs and digestifs crafted with French ingredients. In the kitchen, Chef Partner Doug Psaltis has channeled the roots of his early career with Chef Alain Ducasse to create a menu of celebrated classics like Hand-cut Steak Tartare, French Onion Soup, Chateaubriand and Dover Sole Meuniere. It is time to rediscover Paris.

I have been to the Paris Club numerous times. I must say if you are bored on one of those up coming cold Chicago nights this place will definitely lift your spirits. There is always a great sense of energy, uplifting music, and great food and drinks flowing. If you are just into people watching you cannot go wrong here as you may spot one of the Blackhawks, Bulls, or Bears players or, even a Hollywood celebrity. Definitely put this place on your list of jump starts during the doldrums of winter.

Fantastic entrees and appetizers. Someone in our party had food allergies, and they provided alternate menu items that were delicious. Highly, highly recommended.

I wanted to really like this place. However I found it cold and unwelcoming. The food was good but nothing "wow". We were celebrating a birthday and mentioned that upon our reservation. It was not acknowledged what so ever. We didn't make a big deal but chalked it lack of attention to detail. Felt completely rushed the whole time during our meal. I think we will skip the Paris club next time we are in the big city and try another restaurant instead.

Big bar with big vibe. Large dining room with essentialy Parisienne bistro menu by the Lettuce Entertain You Group. Well executed food like short ribs, frites, etc. Pretty noisy, so if you like a crowd, no problem. If you are looking for a quiet place to talk, etc, this isnt it. Good service.

Everyone is always having parties here. That's cool. I go and I always have fun. But we should rename it Schaumburg Club so that the name is more representative of the clientele.
