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!

Absolutely the best bar in Chicago and that Ashley has some fun costumes!

Great places with amazing people! Everytime I've been there, I've had the best time! No pretensions, just fun people!

A great local bar filled with many faces of entertainment, Fast friendly staff to help you

Well rounded bar that has something for everyone! Friendly staff and amazing entertainment (that almost always benefits a local 501c3)

The Call has AMAZING drag shows!! Everyone is welcome and everyone has a fun time!!
