6 Best Bars for Singles in Chicago

Yes, the single life can be a bit pathetic and lonely at times. You head out to the bar, thinking you’re going to find some hot dude or girl to flirt all night and even (if things go great) hookup with.

But instead, you end up eating an appetizer for three all by yourself. Same, I’ve been there before.

Truth is, the single life can be fun and thrilling if you know where to go! Not all bars are exclusively for meeting attractive, single, people.

Luckily, I got your back, my single friend, for singles must stick together.

We gave you bars to get laid at, now here are six best bars for those who are single and love to mingle.


Slippery Slope

2357 North Milwaukee Avenue

Slippery Slope is guaranteed to get you mingling, shitfaced, and potentially a hookup. There are many variables working in your favor here. A red ambiance sets the mood. The lower lever provides loud, banging music and a dance floor (where there’s dancing, there’s hot women). For a more intimate, less crowded sector, visit the upper area. The atmosphere is more relaxing there. Meet someone on the dancefloor, and invite them upstairs for a cocktail-trust me, it works.

Okay, yes it’s a BBQ restaurant. And ribs, dripping in sauce, aren’t the neatest thing to eat while gazing around for potential prospects. But, I promise this bustling spot is a great place for singles. Bub City has an energetic atmosphere, brought in by their live country music and karaoke nights. It’s more of a relaxed atmosphere than Slippery Slope, more opportunity for conversation than drunk makeouts, which is still great, depending on what you’re into.


The Cove Lounge

I don’t have to tell you that Hyde Park is a booming area for youthful singles, you already know that. This dive bar is a local favorite! They have delicious drinks for fair prices, and it’s a smaller, intimate setting. Why might this be a place for someone single? UC students and locals pour in, making a diverse crowd, so its perfect for sparking up conversations and asking questions about the area.


The Berkshire Room

Located in the Acme Hotel, The Berkshire Room is a popular, classy venue that backs up its hype. Its sleek interior and stellar cocktails (that has received several awards,) keep constant traffic coming in and out of the lounge. The elegant bar carries more of a sophisticated crowd, meaning there’s a lot of handsomes here, so keep your eyes open.


Sportsman’s Club

948 North Western Avenue

This neighborhood tavern is a wooden, hipster gem. They have classic rotating cocktails, no fluff, with chess games set up at selected tables. What makes this place great for singles is their patio, an ultimate mingle spot during warmer weather. So if you’re looking for a spot to flirt that’s laid back and cozy, this is the place to go. Invite someone to play a game of chess, or socialize out on the patio. Sportsman’s Club is your playground.


Rockit Bar & Grill

22 West Hubbard Street

Rockit Bar & Grill is a River North hot spot with hotties. It’s always popping here, from delicious American eats to an awesome variety of booze. You get the best of both worlds, an upstairs for clubbing, and downstairs for dining. Live entertainment finds itself here often, so it’s safe to say you’re in for a rocking good time.
