We were not expecting much when we got 2 drinks with our tickets to a show here, but we were pleasantly surprised. Delicious drinks and great service. All the good looking men there, certainly doesn't hurt either! Not a lot of seating at the bar where we saw a show, but there are ledges along the walls to put down... More

This bar is fantastic, the atmosphere is great they have something on each night but for me the best night is a Sunday which is show tunes! Staff very friendly and really good prices!

We had been to Sidetrack a few years ago on another visit to Chicago. We were happy to see it was still the and going strong. The multiple bars are amazing and they have anything you want to drink including splits of good champagne. Every time we went we always had a great time talking to other patron and the... More

It's a great bar with friendly people. It's huge there and they play videos. Not too loud, so possible to hold a good conversation there as well.

So I enjoyed this club while in Boystown, everyone was so polite, got to try a few amazing slushie drinks which wasnt expected. The space was good enough to not feel too cramped in a bar, the dancefloor set up was also very appealing !! All in all good time, go with a good group or go alone !

I always enjoy going to Sidetrack. Each room they have a different bar. Each with a different personality and atmosphere. This would be a great place to go with a bunch of friends.

This bar started out very small back in the day and now it is one of the largest bars you will ever come across. Friendly, well trained staff that does a great job at making everyone have a good time. Living here in chicago you start to take your bars for granted.....I guess that's true for every city. The one... More

Each night of the week is a different theme for... More

This place was fun. Really gorgeous bartenders. Especially in the little bar upstairs. Worth a visit if you are in Chicago for a couple of days. We went on Friday night and there was a good mixed crowd, which is always nice. I would go again ;)

The entire gay community in Chicago converges in the biggest (and arguably best) gay bar in the Midwest. This bar is not only a centre for the gay community but is a huge supporter of gay rights and activism and gay pride. Gorgeous bartenders, lively crowd and huge expansive space makes this a must-do for any gay visitor. Weekends and... More
