Berlin
Best gay bars in Chicago: Berlin

This freak-friendly dance destination in Lakeview built its reputation back in the mid-’80s with a mix of German new-wave music, art installations and even drag shows. These days, it’s still quirky, blending modern electro with retro, with nights devoted to Madonna, Björk, Depeche Mode and Robyn. Goths and gays are extra welcome, but the scene here is made up of almost everyone. Thursday night's Stardust a major locus of creativity in nightlife, especially in its trippier monthly Total Therapy incarnation, the last Thursday of each calendar page.

This place is really pretty darn awesome.

It has a lot of lbgt customers, so don't go here with any hate in your heart. That said: it is a very welcoming place to all types of folks, not just of a particular scene. Really really fun place!

One of the vest in the city to dance and be jolly!
