Excalibur announces the 25th anniversary reunion of the iconic Chicago nightspot Limelight on Sunday, August 22. The New York-based club hit the Chicago scene on July 31, 1985 and held court as one of the hottest scene-and-be-seen spots in Chicago for the ensuing three and a half years until Excalibur opened in the space in 1989.
Admission to this blast from the past reunion event includes an open bar from 7:30 PM until 3:30 AM, live DJ spinning tunes, dancing, and reminiscing. Chicagoans are invited to put on their eighties finest and reunite at the Limelight Nightclub reunion at Excalibur.
Fred Hoffmann, founder and president of Ala Carte Entertainment, opened Excalibur in the Limelight space in 1989 to rave reviews. Excalibur was named “Best Nightclub in Chicago” by the Chicago Tribune in its latest “Best of” Reader’s Poll, and has received similar awards almost yearly since it opened in 1989. Excalibur and Vision are the largest and longest running nightclubs in North American history and continue to be icons in the Chicago’s nightlife industry.
With capacity for 3000 and more than 60,000 square feet, the historic landmark is a true entertainment complex and the largest non-hotel private party venue in Chicago, featuring special events like international DJs every Saturday night, along the likes of Tiesto, rated number one in the world, numerous private party rooms, three different clubs under one roof, late-night dining, and an array of libation choices.
