Big Gay Road Trip: Roscoe’s

Every Chicagoan who wrote to us before the road trip started said that we have to check out Roscoe’s, and that even on a Sunday night it would be lively. Well it did not disappoint. What looks like a little neighborhood bar when you first walk in proves to be much larger, with four bars, an outdoor garden patio, a dark room for dancing in the back complete with dry ice and strobe lights, and lots of “cute young guys and the men who love them” as reader David described.

We enjoyed some $3 beer and watched campy music videos while soaking up the genuinely friendly and unpretentious attitude of the bar patrons. We’re not sure if it’s a midwestern thing, but we already feel at home here.
