Party Earth Beaumont Bar & Grill Review

The Scene

The Beaumont Bar & Grill is a crazy late-night Chicago dance club in Lincoln Park. Check out the chaotic Chicago scene at Party Earth.

The Beaumont Bar & Grill – more commonly referred to as just Beaumont’s – is open late. As in 5am late. As in, “Screw it, we’re already knee-deep in booze wannah dance” late.

Although neon signs and affordable beer hint at the regulars from nearby DePaul University, the front room actually looks like a sedate neighborhood joint, with a long bar on one side, a décor of vintage posters, and a vibe conducive to audible conversation – at least until the end of the week.

Around 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays, however, the staff throws open the doors to the dance floor, making room for the tidal waves of twenty-somethings about to flood in.

Drunken girls in tiny dresses, hammered guys in button-downs, and the occasional strange old man who needs to move out of his mother’s basement crowd into the space to gyrate to ear-splitting Top 40, hip-hop, and the odd 80s or R&B tune. And if that room fills up, an additional separate dance floor further back is called into action, creating an undulating mass of sweaty revelers.

As last call approaches, people try to find their friends, look for a last chance to score with…something, and head out into the early sunrise.

Patrons looking for a refined night out should probably keep moving, but for anyone in the market for an insane dance party, The Beaumont Bar & Grill is guaranteed to deliver.

Tip from Emma:

There isn’t a set time for the door staff to start charging cover; they just wait for it to get really crowded. If you want to avoid paying, show up before 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays. That said, Beaumont’s doesn’t truly pop till after midnight.

  • Crowd

    Some older locals and chill DePaul students early in the evening, supplanted later by throngs of preppy college kids and post-grads, groups of party girls, already drunken clubbers, and a few libidinous older men, 20s to 30s+.

  • Entertainment / Music

    DJ spins mostly Top 40 and hip-hop on Fridays and Saturdays. About a dozen TVs tuned to sports or music videos. Jukebox that sees little use after midnight.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Full menu of bar food like burgers and wings. Carryout available for a fifty-cent surcharge. Rotating daily food and drink specials.

  • Prices

    Cover charge $7/F–Sa. Appetizers $3–$8, sandwiches and burgers $5–$8, pizza $6–$11. Beer $5–$6, mixed drinks $6.50–$8, shots $6.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Jeans, t-shirts, and business casual early on; standard club wear later: lots of Affliction, Express, and Forever 21.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Late night on Fridays and Saturdays for a crazy drunken show.

  • Close By

    The Store (2002 North Halsted Street), another late-night bar a few doors down, also hosts a big college crowd.

There are better late-night haunts
Andrew D. Apr 25, 2013
If contracting herpes or HPV from a blacked out DePaul University Senior at 3:30 a.m. is your cup of tea, then Beaumont's is for you. Once you get through the unnecessarily lengthy line (not worth it - leave and go elsewhere!), you walk in to an unremarkable, dirty, yet massive bar. There are a few different rooms - all equally grungy. If you're three sheets to the wind and don't anticipate recollection, you may enjoy yourself. But if you're looking for a more memorable 4 a.m. haunt, check out the timeless Hangge-Uppe (worthwhile line) or Evil Olive (grungy, yet delightful).
If you thought Mad River was fun just wait...

My frist experience at Beaumont's was very unique. I have been hearing about it since I moved here back in October and I finally made it to Beaumont's in January. I never had to wait long for a drink and plenty of seating if you were not ready to hit the huge dance floor just yet. The atmosphere makes you feel like the night is only getting better. If you are around the Lincoln Park area and your are not ready to go home just yet this is the perfect place for you!
Nothing good ever happens after 2 AM

I'm no longer the target audience for Beaumont's, but I spent many an ill-advised evening/dawn there when I was in college. Like every other bar that stays open past 2 AM, it's pretty dead inside until all the other bars close...and then shenanigans ensue. I can't imagine what it would be like to be sober at this place; I'm sure you would hate humanity. But, hey, when you're 21 and want to keep drinking until the sun comes up, why not do it here? You'll likely have great stories (if you can remember them) about all the random people who pour in late at night. There will be a lot of dancing, and "Living on a Prayer" will most definitely be played. You will meet some really shady characters who try to tell you their complicated backstories over the music. When you walk past the bar in daylight, you will wonder if you were ever inside at all, of it it was just a fuzzy dream.
Hangovers included.

Remember, you will NEVER wake up the morning after going to Beaumont's and say "Gee, I am sooooo glad we went there last night.” This is where you go to get completely blotto at 4am. It’s where bad decisions are made, people tend to vomit a lot, ugly people become really hot, horrific dance renditions are applauded, and everyone looks like they just turned legal-to-drink yesterday apart from a few token cougars on the prowl. Last time I was here I watched a dude slip on his beer bottle, break his angle, and keep dancing….right up until the paramedics arrived. It’s that kind of place. You will have an amazing time…and you also might regret it for the rest of your life. You have been warned.
