Went with a friend last Saturday had a very uncomfortable interaction with a guy who decided it was ok to not only invade my personal space after I had made it very clear I was not interested. Normall...y I would just walk away from that situation but this guy sorta had me cornered the staff however was on it though my 2 bartenders that evening made him go away in a very kind professional way without causing a scene. I was incredibly grateful for how it was handled and the fact that it was handled at all. They were very apologetic though it was by no means their fault. I absolutely love this bar I felt very safe thanks to the staff. Thanks sidetrack!
P.s. sadly I didn't catch the bartenders names because it was very loud and very busy. But I wanted to say thank you anyway!

Sidetrack is an amazing bar to go and socialize. Love the luxurious feel and the fact that there is never a cover charge!!! Crowd is always welcoming and drinks are never pre-mixed. Staff is the in Lakeview. Would recommend for all of the spectrum of gays out there. See More

Update: it was reported to me that he was last at sidetracks around 11. If anyone knows someone that works there please let them know to contact me. Will put a pic in comments...

From the frothy and fantastic frozen drinks they are INTERNATIONALLY known for, to the wonderful warm and fuzzy staff to the never ending events and renowned Musical Monday's, Sidetrack is just a peachy, top drawer place to go and live and share life hands down See More

A place for friends and “family” have met some of the best people in life here. Pepe thanks for starting a movement where people can come always and have a home and celebrate life and love.

Sidetrack is an institution. It's a place where memories are made whether you discover it in your callow youth or get introduced to it later in life by a groupie. There's rarely a mention of Boystow...n Chicago without some homage to this haven of fun and good feeling. The management and staff make it so, not to mention Showtunes!!! See More

It's a Chicago institution by this point. I like that they keep evolving. I remember when It was one room... and country western dancing once a week! It's seen many facets of our lives. This place is ...part of the Chicago gay experience. See More

Sidetrack was our favorite bar when we lived in Chicago. Had to have a drink there on our first trip back in two years. Still the best!
