My first Club and best. I was 22 and would come from Elgin. I would take the Metra & drink a forty. Then hop on the blue line get off on Chicago. Walk by the old Montgomery Wards building. Too cheap to pay for a cab, lol. That was my drinking money, remember ZIMA. That was the drink of choice. I remember seeing Little Suzy (Take me take me in your arms) Cynthia. Great great memories. I'm Cory Jurs if anyone remembers me.

Variety is the theme in this mega-complex nightclub. The main room has your basic techno-house mix. To the side, there is the alternative room, playing everything from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Front 242. At the end of the first floor is the Disco Room, complete with large, round, yellow booths. The Friday performance of Disco Dynamite is a must see. Upstairs, a juke box plays hard rock while patrons shoot pool. - sys, 12/26/1999

That was so sad when they did close ka-boom down, but it closed because of all the problem's that started thier, be real, i know for a fact comming out the club one night, going up them long stair's the had, two people were holding a guy with his neck slit,i sprung into action to try to help him,when the ambulance came i left him with his two friend's, because i dnt see who'd done it,and wan't going to be any help on that, i never forgot that night, i still
wonder if that guy lived or died, the weekend after that there was a shooting, and that was the real problem i think. - Evelyn Santiago, 06/30/2010

KaBoom rocked back into the 90's. One of Kenny Smiths best bar. Great dance floors and VIP area. Loved the entrance which they decorated every month with a new theme. I miss all of Kennys bars: Exit (On Wells not North Ave) KaBoom Esotaria Big Nasty Out Takes Kit Kat Club..(Only opened for two months) High Tops (Only part owner) And CROBAR.. which now he only owns the Miami Beach one that brings in $100,000 a month profit for him. Now the clubs have snooty people that get emotional and stupid when they drink. But can you blame them when they charge $30 to get in a $200 bottles of liquer if you want a seat. - Doug E Fresh, 12/23/2008
