Location: Chicago Club's Name: Lucky HorseShoe Lounge Address: Belmont & Halstead Phone #: never called them Hours: varies Cover charge: Only for special events Website: (if available) Type of Club: Bar with Go-Go Boys Type of dancers: Varies Description of Club: Three bars: front, back, and further back. Two "stages" (platforms) for dancers. Back areas often closed off during the week (slower times) but back areas very active weekends. General Information: If it wasn't for near-naked boys dancing on a box you'd think this was just another neighborhood bar at the foot of Chicago's boystown. The bartenders are always friendly, the crowd is always friendly, it's a lot like "Cheers", but with go-go boys. The dancers vary. It's usually twink-o-rama, and often they look like they could use a good meal. (Often, they could.) Once in a while, you'll spot an utter stud who just couldn't get booked anywhere else in town that night. The quality of dancers varies widely enough you might not want to put the Shoe on your first choice list. When it's good it's FABULOUS and when it's bad it's really, really bad. It's the only place I've tipped a dancer to GO AWAY. I've also hooked up with some fabulous guys there. The dancers have to keep the g-strings on, but on busy weekend evenings you can often sneak into a corner with one of 'em and get frisky. If you want a dancer to get friendly, tip him. He'll generally come over to your bar stool afterwards and thank you. The thanks will be proportionate to the tip. Tip well on a slow evening and he'll be REALLY thankful. As for hours, it's the most generous in Chicago. Weekdays, they start around 6pm and run until 1am. Weekend, they start closer to 3pm and run until 3am. It's just a good laid-back place to relax and have a drink, and it comes with dancing twinks who appreciate attention. What's not to like?
