Citysearch Editorial Review – This lively Boystown haunt touts an "everyone’s welcome" message. With a mellow coffee shop atmosphere by day and nightly parties with themes like Frat House Thursdays, complete with flip cup and bad movies, virtually everyone has a reason to swing by. An antique disco ball sending scarlet flecks through the room and black and white photos illustrating Chicago’s gay and lesbian history add pizazz to ornate, turn-of-the-century-inspired decor. Cocktails, inspired by all things red, include the toothsome Rouge (Champagne, pomegranate liqueur and a splash of pineapple juice) and Rojo (rum, hibiscus tea, mint and strawberries).
This Boys Town spot has a neighborhood feel early on but morphs into a lounge late-night. – In Short
Swapping Gentry's piano (and bawdy feel) for DJ-manned decks, this friendly lounge still exudes a swank feel in the form of brocade curtains and a well-edited martini list. Illuminated stained glass panels back the bar, slick wood floors beckon revelers to shimmy to tunes tableside, and videos, which flicker on flat-screen Tvs, spark conversation. Vintage sepia photography depicting gay culture completes the experience.
