They are always welcoming and very warm staff. The owners are the best. Great music, drinks and atmosphere!!

this is a bar for anyone who is secure in their own offers many things for many people, including line dancing on the 3rd Sunday of each month, and a lot of the drag shows are benefits supporting many venue's...

Amazing people (seriously, always super nice), fabulous drag shows (best queens in Chicago), and an overall fun experience. Also, As an older guy (42 here) I love having a bar that is focused on all ages and 'types' and not in the heart of Boystown.

Great place to dance or party. Eclectic crowd, inventive cocktail list...they also have different nights that feature drag shows, or the music of a particular artist. Nice mix of men and women, LGBT and straight people.

Besides a kickin' dance floor, The Call features some of the hottest drag and burlesque performers in the city. You never know what fantastic show you'll see!
