The West Loop was jumping back in late June on the 27th. That Friday night the cast and crew of the John Dillinger bio "Public Enemies" hit Randolph Street hot spot Bon V (pronounced just like the French saying Bon Vie, meaning the good life) for the film's official wrap party.

Stars started arriving into the crowded club around 11:30pm. Actors Giovanni Ribisi (best known for his stint on the television show "My Two Dads," according to my co-worker Holly) and Stephen Dorff were first on the scene (in matching flannel shirts to boot), then came "Public Enemies" director Michael Mann. An hour later, Oscar winner and natural beauty Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose") sashayed in looking casual yet cute wearing a floral tee and jeans. Even though he wasn't in the movie, Chicago homeboy and "Entourage" star Jeremy Piven came out to support his colleagues.
So where was Johnny Depp the star of "Public Enemies" during the wrap party? Filming wrapped late that evening and he was still having some wine in the private dining room of Gibsons Steakhouse.

Oh well, there was enough star power at the two-floor 7,500 square-foot ultra lounge. I'm just getting ready for more star-studded nights and good times at my new favorite nightlife venue, Bon V!
