2009 VINTAGE: The Kardashian sisters' reality show premiere last Saturday at Enclave was also the club's debut of their new ultra-lounge, Cuvee. Located a few blocks away from Enclave, Cuvee will cater to visiting fameballs and Chicago's nightlife elite -- so, like, Drakkar-doused dudes and the women who pretend to love them.
