• The Closet

    The Closet is a neighborhood bar for the whole neighborhood. A staple in the Boystown community, the Closet walls have been a second home to many. The bar was established in July of 1978 by two women, Judi and Rose. This was quite the accomplishment especially when you consider…2 women…2 lesbians…starting a business in the 70’s.

  • Debonair Social Club

    Debonair is inspired by the romanticisms of a ‘social club’ of yesteryear. The neighborhood ‘Social Club’ was a meeting place, an event space, versatile, accessible and affordable for the community. While a darling among the hipster crowd, it is open to anyone out to celebrate life, love and the cultural obsessions of our times. Whether those be punk rock, dance, burlesque or limited-edition sneakers, all are welcome at the Debonair Social Club.

With the 1960s British Invasion movement in mind, The Bassment's design includes gold accents throughout, brick walls, a mixture of uniquely designed velvet and leather couches and a full stage.

  • The Empty Bottle

    In 1992 the Empty Bottle started out as a cat-ridden hole-in-the-wall bar in Ukrainian Village (just south of Wicker Park) where you could get any one of nine beers for a buck-fifty or less, play pool for 50 cents, and find everything from Monster Magnet to Bill Monroe on the jukebox. On Halloween of 1993, we moved two blocks up the street and threw open the doors to our new, sound-equipped, slightly larger hole with three nights of great shows, culminating with a SCRAWL performance that could have been a scene out of "Carrie." We've done a bunch of shows since then; in fact, we've been anything but empty these last 20 or so years, thanks to the same low prices, lack of attitude, and dedicated regulars that made the original bar such a success.
