The Hideout among Chicago’s Best Dives

Fred Schlatter’s Chicago Nightlife Examiner Best dives in Chicago, criticism welcome is really being complementary naming Hideout one of Chicago’s Best Dives…

“Please don’t write telling me that this is not a dive, but in fact a rock venue. Of course it’s a venue for, among other things, rock and roll, but that doesn’t discount the fact that the Hideout is a skuzzy looking clapboard house in the middle of factory parking lot. That alone should frighten aspiring, lesser dives. The fact that beer is (still) cheap and whiskey flows freely seals it. Oh, and the music does, in fact, also kick ass.”
