In this guide, we give it to you straight so you can meet hot women in Chicago right now.
Chicago is one of the most populous cities in the US with almost 10 million people living in the extended metropolitan area.
It has a reputation for being a city with as many faces as it has street corners.
A thriving entertainment district, literary past and strong cultural heritage contrast with the city’s more ‘gritty’ past and present. A major international hub for business and commerce as well as education, there can be a transient nature to the occupants of Chicago that can make hooking up that much more interesting.
The Velvet City has almost 800 bars and a couple of hundred more clubs and other evening venues so where should a guy go when visiting Chicago to find the hottest girls?
Two Pronged Attack: Dating Apps
Though the bars we’ve listed below are all known for attracting some of the city’s finest looking specimens, competition can be fierce with plenty of alpha males all on the same mission.
We can lead a horse to water but the ultimate success will be down to you, your finest chat-up lines and dressing to impress.
However, you can improve your chances by using one of the many hook-up apps which help to narrow down a field of possible candidates and speed up contact; Tinder and Tingle (or Feeld and Whiplr for those with more of a kinky side) are all useful when out on the pull in Chicago.

Open daily from 7pm to 2am, Danny’s is a really popular local bar and nightclub without any pretension. It can get really busy on Fridays and Saturdays and you can expect to queue alongside hipster chicks, college girls and hot Chicago women. The music is designed to get the crowd up and off the walls with everything from hip-hop to eighties classics and maybe some odd samba music thrown in.
The place has plenty of different rooms, zones and quiet corners so it’s ideal for chatting as well as getting up close and personal on the dance floor. It’s an unassuming place when you look at it from the outside but its reputation makes it a prime spot for good vibes and hot women.

One of the city’s high-end places to meet attractive women in Chicago, Rebar has a reputation for class, elegance and refined ladies. There is no doubting that the experience is wholly different to that which you can get downtown or in a Wrigley Field bar. You can also expect to hit your wallet hard with pricey cocktails and expensive snacks but the difference can be seen in the quality of woman. It’s definitely an experience and deserves your best A game. The dress code is business casual so no sneakers and tees.

The Berlin bar won’t be most people’s first choice of hook up venue but bear with us. The place is known for its diverse range of clientele with an ‘all-orientations’ welcome attitude. As a result, the club positively pulses bizarre with trans, drag and gay men largely making up the crowd.
However, the ‘anything goes’ vibe also attracts a mix of women looking for a hedonistic night out making hook ups almost inevitable. The place is huge and the music is loud but for those guys who can go the distance with a combo of crazy house music and peculiar patrons until 4am then the rewards will be theirs. A word of warning though, some of the shemales and drag queens here are very hot.
Rockit Bar and Grill
22 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 6065
Phone: +1 312 645 6000
A stylish foodie place but with a club upstairs, the Rockit is popular with creative single ladies and has even been known to be frequented by the odd celebrity. It’s a good place to hangout during the day but is also open late until around 2am most nights for a DJ dance style night out. Its contemporary and upmarket twist on a North American classic bar and grill makes it stylish and seems to work as it’s always busy and attracts some very good looking girls.

The Slippery Slope is a busy award winning bar that is popular as a hook up venue for lovers of the dating app scene. You can grab a beer just as easily as you can a cocktail at this two storey club with DJ. The women here tend to arrive in groups so you may want a wingman to help separate any potential lookers. It’s a great bar with excellent reviews from visitors and locals with a strong reputation for its stable of attractive women.

A classy cocktail bar on East Side, Bar Allegro is an art-deco inspired lounge ideal for hanging out to go for the cool and relaxed pick up. Happy Hour is everyday from 4pm to 6pm and is worth hitting up towards the end of to start your ‘approach’. A popular place for after work or pre-theatre drinks, the Allegro closes early but attracts some real talent. Make it the first stop on your early night out to see how the land lies.
