    The crowd can be a lot to handle, but the music is always on point.

    Excellent throwback party dancey music!

    Not my favorite bar, but can be a good dance place when in the mood.

    Dustin Haley · May 31
  • Alex G.

    Nah. Not fun.

  • Zach F.

    If it's super loud, show your drink order to the bartender on your phone. They appreciate it.

    Zach Felsenstein · April 17
  • Jen M.

    Fireball pour by Trannika Rex at midnight on weekends for those daring to venture near the bar.

    Jen Marquez · March 6

    The $5 cover includes a "complementary" shot of Fireball

    A 1920s- and '30s-decorated bar whose nightly themed parties last until 2 or 3 a.m. Read more

    This is the most annoying bar in Chicago.

    Tracey Swanson · August 10, 2013

    No miles on Friday's and Saturdays

  • Anthony S.

    The place to go when you just want to drink and dance like no one is watching. Be sure to check your claustrophobia at the door.

    Anthony Suarez · June 20, 2013
  • Kam B.

    I literally want to dance all night long the old school house

    Amazeballs. Packed as sardines.

    If you like trashy people, sticky floors, ghetto music, and shoulder-to-shoulder space... Then this is your bar.

    Vincent James · March 1, 2013

    Ordering a LIT pitcher removes the stand and wait for a while.

    Chad Kagen · February 22, 2013
  • J. C.

    this place sucks ass. there's no way the big crowds are under capacity. major attitude, shitty drinks. no thank you!

    J. Chicago · October 10, 2012
  • David S.

    If it the Thursday, order a "Long Beach" it is only $5, you get a large pitcher AND it is yummy!

    David Sheffer · September 21, 2012
  • Michael D.

    Always remember to tip your bartenders because they have been dealing with your drunk ass all night and it's a nice way to show your appreciation

    Michael De Chant · September 15, 2012
  • Thomas K.

    I love going here with hot guys

    Thomas Kwiecinski · August 1, 2012
  • Derek K.

    Great specials, fun atmosphere. The music can be hit-or-miss tho. DJs like Katy, Dolo and Konsept are on point. The others need to work on their "flow." Sorry but true.

    Derek Kucynda · July 22, 2012

    The best way to predict the FUTURE is to create it.If you've been waiting for retirement to draw your meager pension, stop waiting.

    Alexander Leon · April 6, 2012
  • James G.

    Kevin Neal and Ben Poulos are the dynamic duo of bartenders. Dangerous in a good way. <3

    James Goeke · March 6, 2012

    This place is late... You have buy continuous drinks... Wonder if I only wanted one 

    Tyrone Clark · March 4, 2012
  • Tad M.

    Come on Thursday! I drank a 40 and played Super Mario World

    Tad Markley · March 2, 2012
  • Shane S.

    This is the only bar on the strip with decent, relevant music. One of the first places in Chicago that played duck sauce

    Shane Sweeney · January 14, 2012
  • Christopher H.

    I think they play the best music here. The only trade off is that it is way too small

    Christopher Houston · January 10, 2012
  • Sean B.

    Liquid brunch on Sunday, enough said!!

    Sean Bush · January 2, 2012
  • Tom B.

    The youngest crowd on the Halsted strip, save maybe Minibar. It definitely beats Minibar in attitude, though. People here are friendly and just want to have fun.

    Tom Bellino · December 24, 2011
  • Matthew H.

    The 40s are five dollars on thursday...but isn't your dignity worth more than that

    Matthew Herek · December 21, 2011
  • Francois F.

    The music here is amazing on Saturdays if you like a mix of hip hop and dance with great djs! Hipster club kid crowd! Did I mention $12 champagne on Sunday?

    Francois F · November 28, 2011
  • Hazem E.

    Beware of pick pocketers several people got pick pocketed on the same night only to find out its a weekly occurrence!!!

    Hazem Elbialy · November 27, 2011
  • Saya D.

    The only place you will get it crackin the second you walk in! Awesome Djs cool people sickening bartenders. My favorite.

    Saya Diaz Deleon · November 27, 2011
  • Elliott R.

    With the exception of Thursdays, the place waters down drinks. Big time.

    Elliott Ramos · November 21, 2011
  • Andy M.

    This place totally violates capacity laws! Shitty dance floor and weak drinks... It's like a smaller, less classy minibar. Stay away!

    Andy Meyer · November 20, 2011
  • Chris K.

    BEST bar on the strip. Just wish it was bigger! On the best nights it's so crowded. I guess that's a good problem to have though. The people are nice and non pretentious. Bartenders cool etc..
