The closest I can get are clubs that cater to 40 year old rich men looking to find 18 yr old girls. I'm assuming that's not what your looking for :-)

Anything in the Viagra corridor will be fine. All on Rush St.- Hunt Club, Dublins, Jillys.

I thought it was the viagra triangle (hence the shape of the street Gibson's is on). All the places around Gibson should be good for you. Jilly's is the old Siantra joint and one of the few places in the city that still has a Cigar lounge besides Ditkas.

Also, The Lodge on Division Street (between Dearborn + State), Butch McGuire's across from The Lodge, and PJ Clarke's on State, 1 door north of Division. All are more bars than clubs/lounges, but 40+ year olds will feel quite comforable at any of these.

I don't know if any bars in their Mission Statment have specifically "Attract all the 40-somethings".

but some thoughts. outside of the Viagra triangle:

Japonais. go to the lounge in the basement.

SushiSamba Rio

Rooftop deck.

BIN 36. wine bar

Webster's Wine Bar

All more of lounges. No music in your face. or people acting like they are in college.

I didn't see the Redhead Piano bar in there. I believe my father-in-law has performed there. That is a pretty cool bar that is a bit more relaxed. Definately no Elton John or Jay-Z.
