Chicago, IL — Thursday night Parlour on Clark, 6341 N Clark, opened its doors to friends and family for a private preview of Chicago's newest LGBT bar. In typical Chicago fashion this far North bar seems seeped in tradition and change at the same time. The exposed brick and venting in the long, narrow bar reminded me of a typical Chicago sports bar. Yet, in concert with the Edgewater neighborhood as a whole, everything in Parlour on Clark is renewed, refreshed and upgraded.

From the beautiful bar top to the gilded antique mirrors, an attention to detail permeated the air. A line of chandeliers led the eye with contemporary elegance to the focal point of the bar, a wall covered in textured aluminum like waves on the sea. While there is still work to be done in the back, the space is coming together nicely.

The bar full of smiling faces laughed, drank and spontaneously danced into the night. For a neighborhood with an ever-growing LGBT population, Parlour on Clark seems to fill a void the community needed. I see potential in it and will watch closely to see what the future holds.

Parlour on Clark officially opens to the public on Friday, August 27. The bar will feature weekly themed nights including Tuesdays Gruve, Sports Sundays and Ladies' Thursday Lipstick Night starting September 2.
