Marty’s Martini Bar
While this sleek spot isn’t billed as a gay bar, that’s just the type of crowd it attracts. The interior is reminiscent of Moulin Rouge-era Montmarte and the cocktails are expertly crafted. Intimate yet vibrant, Marty’s is a great choice for a low key night, and if you come on Sundays, they donate a portion of their profit to local charities!
You can find Marty’s at 1511 W. Balmoral Ave.
This second floor lounge is all about kitsch and quirk! From cabaret acts to servers in drag, Mary’s is always poppin’ when you’re looking to have a good time. Come for the infamous MaryOke and belt out your favorite tunes while you sip on top-notch cocktails, or head in when they have a DJ and dance the night away.
This chic bar features exposed brick, metal accents, and a 30-foot long bar that looks over the dance floor. DJs are always spinning the hottest music and there are go-go dancers for your viewing pleasure. If you want a break from the bumping main area, there’s a cozy lounge in the back where you can cuddle up with the cutie from across the bar.
