About The Bassment- The Bassment, a speakeasy cocktail lounge located below The Hampton Social, first opened in December 2015. Brad Parker, the owner, operator and designer opened The Bassment with the vision to inspire people to enjoy live music again. Guests enter a secret entrance marked “The Tobacconist” and are led through a narrow hallway, down a short flight of steps and into a simple yet welcoming greeting room with a single aluminum aircraft-style desk and bookcase. It’s when the black curtain is pulled back that a large yet comfortable modern speakeasy bar & lounge awaits. With the 1960s British Invasion movement in mind, The Bassment’s design includes gold accents throughout, brick walls covered in street art, a long bar, a mixture of uniquely designed velvet & leather couches and a full stage. The music program features live bands performing R&B, Blues, New Orleans Funk, Soul, Jazz and Nu-Disco covers. The bar offers the finest in wine, champagne & fine spirit selections, a creative cocktail menu and a light bite menu to choose from as well. The Bassment, located at 353 W Hubbard St. Chicago, IL 60654 (Alley Entrance), is open Wednesday – Saturday from 8 PM – 2 AM(3 AM on Saturday). www.TheBassmentChicago.com.
