Sometimes I like to dance, sometimes I like to watch a drag show, but if I want to partake in both, I go to Hydrate. During the early hours of the evening, they host a sit-down drag show in the back of the bar and after 11pm, they open up the space for dancing and loud music. Their sound and light experience is one of the best in Chicago (even if you have sensitive ears like me, you won’t get overwhelmed by their sound system). Check it out if you want to get your blood pumping and get all your pent-up quarantine-related angst out.
