The Circuit: The trashiest ""night club"" in gay Chicago
Okay, my girlfriend and I stopped at the circuit thinking that it would a dance club, something a little different than our dance clubs at home, maybe even bigger and better. When we walked inside it was the most unimpressive dirty place either of us had ever been. I would definately consider this place the dive bar of boystown. Being from Omaha Nebraska, which isn't nearly a big as Chicago, our clubs are actual clubs, places you would want to go, multiple dance floors and hot people. The circuit was more or less empty on a saturday night at 12am, and the people dancing on the ""dance floor"" were over 30 and not very pretty. We couldn't even stomach to stay more than 20 minutes.
Within the first 3 minutes of being there we were harrassed by the ""security guards"" for going into the bathroom together. It was pretty repulsive and when we said something on the way out, we were more or less ignored.
You can definately tell that this place had no sense of community. Which is really sad for Chicago, or at least gay Chicago. It makes me proud to be gay where I'm from because when we go to our gay bars and gay dance clubs, we're welcomed, and you know people, and it's a true community of people. I guess it just goes to show you that larger cities, being so much larger, can contain that much more trash than a smaller city could.
I think that if you are expecting trashy, dirty, cheap (not literally) because you spend entirely too much money, on over-priced, watered-down cocktails, this is the place for you. But if you hold yourself in any kind of regard and consider yourself to have even an ounce of class, and would like to go out and have a fun time rather than want to have to take an acid bath after leaving, you should stay clear of the circuit, this is not the place for you.
