Chicago's premiere video bar for 30 years
Another stop on the "musts" tour of Boystown. Videos fill the joint with pop dance tunes. Be sure to check out the great rooftop beer garden, open in the warm months. With seven large rooms, lounges, and one very cool balcony, Sidetrack is the biggest gay bar in the city and claims selling the most vodka of any bar in the U.S. And, yes, the boys can be plied with ample helpings of the the Russian elixir. At any rate, it will certainly fend off the frigid winter that can envelope the city.
