The store is open until either 8pm or 9pm (9pm on Fridays and Saturdays), meaning you’ll have time to pop in here if you’d like to surprise your partner with some new play toys after work. 😉

2131 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL 60647, United States
Phone: +1 773-235-1234
A store for ladies… run by ladies.
G Boutique is an adult store dedicated to women’s lingerie, special outfits and a variety of toys designed to bring out the maximum pleasure for any lady who has them in her collection.
This is a popular spot for sourcing bachelorette gifts and fun cheeky presents that have either novelty value, a sexy utility, or both. A comfortable and friendly shopping experience for any woman who might feel intimidated by some of the more seedy sex shops around town.
6410 N Clark St Chicago, Illinois 60626, United States
Phone: +1 773-508-0900
An adult store dedicated to leather goods and fetishwear. This place has a variety of leather gear including some custom-made outfits that you simply won’t find anywhere else in the Windy City.
Update July 2016: Sadly it appears as if Mephisto Leathers may have closed down. Can anybody confirm?
Tulip Toy Gallery
1480 W Berwyn Ave Chicago, IL, United States
3459 N Halsted St Chicago, IL, United States
Phone: +1 773-275-6110 / +1 773-975-1515
The Tulip Toy Gallery is a LGBTQ+ owned adult boutique with two branches in Chicago, Illinois.
The management here places a firm emphasis on health and education. While you can find and buy just about every adult toy that tickles your imagination — from dildos and dongs, to vibrators, cock rings, sex games, fetishwear and books — the company has an admirable motto that they won’t sell anything they wouldn’t put into their bodies.
Their products do not contain any carcinogens or toxins. And unlike many toys, these can be fully sterilized.
If this sounds like a good idea — and it does to us — you don’t have to be based in Chicago to reap the benefits of their adult goodies. You can also order online using their 100% discreet delivery service.
