  • More straight than gay on Saturdays
    I've been coming to Ziegfield's since the 1990s. So I've been really saddened by the fact that it's been taken over by hen parties on Saturday nights. The last time I went (4-22-17) was particularly bad: the entire floor area in front of the stage was women only, many of whom were loud, drunk, and rude. More than once the owner had to yell at some of them, to little avail. I understand that women like the "safe" space of gay bars, but this is too much.

  • Downtown's Best Secret
    I come to this bar every time I'm in Chicago. I love a good, unpretentious, divey gay bar (an endangered species), and Second Story is as good as it gets. This last time I took my husband, who is NOT a dive bar fan. He wasn't loving the fact that the entire bar is smaller than our living room (he has space issues), but after a couple of strong drinks and after noticing how diverse the crowd was (old men, young boys, big lesbians, lipstick lesbians, etc), he let his hair down and had a great time.

  • Great neighborhood bar
    While the clientele is mixed, this place definitely has a gay feel to it. The atmosphere is very casual and friendly. I feel equally comfortable taking friends here for an unpretentious brunch or dropping in by myself during the week for a drink or dinner (half-price pasta night!).

  • Go to see and be seen
    So far I've only gone to Nine during Friday happy hour, which is probably not the best since it gets crowded and LOUD. Still, the drinks are good (the bartenders know how to make a Pimms cup) and the vibe makes you feel like you're at the center of DC gay life.

  • Go for Bear Happy Hour
    This is a fun place to go on Friday nights if you like a big, diverse crowd. The atmosphere is friendly, and there are plenty of different types of guys beyond the typical DC clone (not that there's anything wrong with clones). The kind of place where you be in an untucked flannel shirt and drink beer straight from a pitcher.
