3700 North Halsted Street
Chicago, IL 60613
The Boystown neighborhood is a wonderland of bars and clubs, and some of the best gay bars in Chicago are along the main stretch of Halsted Street. In this neighborhood, even low-key neighborhood joints might break into spontaneous dance parties, but the big Chicago gay clubs are hard to miss. Take Sidetrack, which has the capacity for 1,000 people – and it often seems like they’re getting close to the limit. Different floors give guys with different music tastes plenty of dancing space, and the rooftop deck lets the overwhelmed take a breather and maybe meet some new people.
Other Boystown clubs may not be housed in warehouses, but popular spots like Hydrate and Spin pack the floor with pretty guys and the occasional packs of girls who want to dance with them. Theme nights, contests, and foam parties are regular attractions at these clubs, making every night a different adventure.
A short walk from the Halsted strip, Berlin is known for its extremely diverse crowd. Though some consider it a gay club, people of all orientations stand in line for a chance to get in. For good reason – the dancing is really, really good. No matter which dance floor you choose, however, Chicago gay clubs are going to show you a great party.
