Making a huge impact  in the Chicago social scene, Phil Castro founded Diamond Night Chicago (D.N.C.) in September 2008. With a goal of forming a company based on event planning and high end nightlife promotions, DNC was born. In a short time, DNC established relationships with several of the top Chicago clubs and bars, including; Cuvee, Stone Lotus, Lumen, Y Bar, Underground, Proof, The Mid, Paris Club, NV Penthouse, Enclave, Board Room, etc.

No event is out of the question for DNC, they specialize in anything from product launches, to theme parties, to celebrity appearances, to big DJ bookings, to private parties and much more. DNC is aware of all the necessary procedures of booking parties and events, they have personal relationships with the owners/mangers of the venues and can make your private event booking experience much more pleasurable and accessible.  Their crowd is known to be one of the best looking and energetic crowds in the city. They always set the vibe regardless of which venue they are hosting or which event they are promoting.This reputation has vaulted DNC to be known as one of the top promotional and event planning companies in the Midwest. Chicago Scene magazine even named them one of the best promotional companies in Chicago.

DNC have been holding functions for the Chicago's young and social individuals for almost 4 years now. Their crowd that follows their events are deemed as the "movers and shakers" of the Chicago night life scene and are also known to be an extremely vibrant, attractive, youthful crowd.

Diamond Night Chicago can accommodate all requests and sizes: from a group of six looking for bottle service; a large group seeking to be on the guest list; a 30-person birthday party complete with wrist band specials; a 300-person private work party; a 700-person concert; any sort of private event for any organization; and an endless number of other possibilities.

Through a wide range of contacts, DNC can cover a broad range of events to fulfill every desire and request. As the founder, Castro prides himself on making each client’s and or followers experience a wonderful and memorable event. These principles are the key reason Diamond Night Chicago is hailed as one of the best companies to use when considering an event in the Chicagoland area.

Although young, Castro noticed Bille's photography skills right from the get go when first referred by another photographer. Bille is a trained professional photographer who also knows how to socialize at all of the DNC events. Come out with some friends to our next event and take a few professional pics with your favorite Chicago photographer, Bille from DNC.

"Phil and the DNC crew not only knows how to relate to the public on a person level, but they also know how to successfully execute events all over Chicago."
- Bobby K.

"Diamond Night Chicago is known for its uniqueness and customer service. They are always switching up venues every weekend (instead of repetitively hosting at the same place with residencies) and have the public guessing where they will be next. They have the BEST customer service practice in the industry and are known for their personal approach with the public."
- Amy M.

We’ve been working with Phil and the Diamond Night Chicago crew for over a year now and they never fail to deliver!  They keep their promotional efforts personal to THEIR crowd and with that, has been able to maintain a beautiful and energetic crowd who adds to the room and contributes to the over-all success of the event. I highly recommend working with Diamond Night Chicago...QUICKLY becoming one of the elite event planning/promotional groups in the ever evolving nightlife scene.

- Joel Barnes | General Manager | Le Passage Nightclub



DNC is in fact looking for a few more promoter/hosts to help supply the party at every event.
