The Loft (Bar, Gold Coast)
Location: 15 W. Division St.
The Loft is a great end-of-night spot if you’re in the Rush/State/Division area and ready to get a little crazy. Situated on the second floor, above the Irish pub Finn McCool’s, it boasts a medium-sized space, complete with small dance floor. You can lounge on couches and plush chairs, or (if you’re inebriated/brave enough) you can dance on split-level platforms with stripper poles. With reasonably priced drinks and a fun crowd, it’s a good place to head to around 2am when other bars are closing down, or when you want to take the night up a notch before heading home at 4am. It’s not exactly worth a special trip from the other side of town, but if you’re in the neighborhood, it may just be the night cap you’re looking for. Just don’t go here if you’re completely sober. Just sayin… you won’t have fun.
