Big Chicks

5024 N Sheridan Rd.
Chicago, Illinois 60640


LGBT-friendly bar with basic eats & weekend DJs amid art-lined walls.

Big Chicks also isn't strictly a lesbian bar like it's often thought to be. It's a cozy bar with a club-like feel that can be best explained by just going there and checking it out for yourself. It's one of the few gay bars in the uptown neighborhood and one of the few offering cheap drinks, free food and a beer garden.

Big Chicks is a small and sometimes crowded bar but it's laid out really well. There are enough little spots to sit or hang out in that you won't be annoyed if you find yourself rubbing up against strangers. There's a small dance floor that is almost always in use, a convenient coat check, a small pool table, and benches along the wall for all the non-dancers and cool artwork on the walls.
