Chicago Nightlife

Sports bars are open all day (longer during games), and neighborhood restaurants turn into bars by night here as beer gardens fill up and the clientele turns over from diners to revelers. In nightlife too, there’s something for everyone—cocktail lounges, gay dance clubs, bars with old-fashioned bowling, and more.
