Chicago by night... - My Razored Flesh — LiveJournal
Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress
Chicago by night...
I am sitting out on the balcony, enjoying the quite side of downtown Chicago... There's a cool breeze off the lake, and it's just me and Onyx.

It's amazing how deserted it gets at night. The sounds of all the fans and generators keep a steady but low roar.

The only sound, other than my my laptop's music, is the occasional passing bus. It is so peaceful and even though, I am in the city, I can still see the occasional star and early Sunday morning just before sunrise was, such a beautiful cresent moon, it was amazing.

Almost time for bead anyway. Must do that work thing in the morning.

Hi, I found you through a community when I was "researching" the chicago scene. I, along w/ my best friend and a couple others, am looking to make the move to chicago next year and we are having our annual collective birthday bash there this november. I wanted to know if you could recommend some goth/dark/underground clubs or bars that we could check out. I haven't been to chicago in about 4 years so any help is appriciated, thanks!

Sorry for the delay in this response.

I would recommend the following:

Neo good dark place open all week til 4am and 5am on Saturday.
Thursday nights are 80s nights, Friday and Saturday's are more industrial. Grab a copy of the the reader and tear out the Neo add for each person and you get in free before midnight, otherwise it's a $5 cover.

Exit is good too. Thursdays are BDSM nights and are always fun.

Vision is really nice, but only 'dark' on special events, like fetish nights etc.

Whiplash @ Spybar is on Sunday nights and also is a Fetish club.

I hope that helps. I supplied links to their websites if you want more info.

thanks so much! big help. I always like to hear what people that have been to places have to say - it's so much better than ads and sites.
I'll be sure and chek them out.

Oh, and if you get to any of them before midnight, even on a weekday, it'll probably be dead, so hang out until 12:30am and it'll pick up.
