SeVen: Main Bar and Dance Floor - Cermak Road: Crimson District
The music is almost overwhelming. Even those who don't have a heartbeat can feel the pulse of the bass within that dead tissue, as if bringing the organ back to life. The second thing that you notice are all the bodies and the lights, which swirl and dance and writhe and grind on the dance floor. Doesn't seem to matter who you are, or where you come from, you're all welcome to sin here - straight, gay, or bi … human, vampire, or shifter. And by the look of it, there's a /whole/ lot of sinnin' goin' on! Even those that aren't moving to the rhythm of the beat are moving to an older rhythm, making out in shadowed corners or against the walls. Once fully inside you can see the club completely. There are two bars, both against the same wall but directly above one another. Stairs lead up on either side of the massive room to a second level balcony that goes around the entire perimeter of the space. Occasional metal lattice projections reach out over the dance floor, offering a small open-railing enclosure for the beautiful people to dance on and be admired.
On the walls going all the way around are a series of large scale murals depicting the Seven Deadly Sins - Wrath, Sloth, Envy, Lust, Pride, Gluttony, and Greed - in a seductive Erte' style that manages to be both stylish and erotic, agelessly attractive. Each night the atmosphere shifts to honor a different sin, and drink specials are offered to those who 'dress' for the occasion. The music changes as well - seductive and passionate for Lust, heated and wantonly pounding for Wrath, slower and more psychdelic for Sloth, and so on. Almost everything else is black, because it's the people who are the star attraction here, and the lights make them gleam and sparkle. There are a few tables and chairs on the upper level, close to the wall, but for the most part people are constantly in motion - dancing, on the prowl, looking for prey, or looking for a predator. This is not a club where you sit back and relax; this is a club where you embrace all the best things in life from dusk till dawn, if you dare.
