General Info:
Hydrate offers full bar service, featuring a variety of drinks competitively priced with other popular Halsted Street establishments in Chicago. Customers have drink specials, frozen cocktails, delicious martinis and assorted bottled and tap beers to select from. The club breaks into two atmospheres, the first as a cool blue design with large windows opening to Halsted and Cornelia. Its second atmosphere reflects a more fiery personality with bright red d cor that accentuates the illuminated freeform dance space and powerful sound system. The windows in both rooms open up to Halsted for early hours customers. As the evening progresses, the glass-windowed garage doors roll down to seal in the sound, creating a full-on late-night club environment. In the summer months, Hydrate features a light misting system that sprays onto the sidewalk below.

EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE AND RUDE STAFF

So much of the experience of going to a bar, or any establishment really, is the tone that the staff sets to make the experience a pleasant, positive, and fun one. It is this aspect of Hydrate alone that has earned it my one star rating. The other day, a friend and I were going to go to get drinks at Hydrate (a low-key bar located on Halsted that I'd heard good things about) but were so profoundly insulted by the wom... view more

Party until the late Morning at Hydrate!

My friends and I recently went to Hydrate for a Valentine's Day party and had a blast! The cover was kind of expensive, but worth it since the party lasts until 5am. The new bartender Mike was super friendly and so HOTTTTTTTTTT! Staring at his rock solid six pack and body all night made us completely forget all about the vomit-smell throughout the entire club! ...my friends and I will be back!

Okay place

This place is alright, I liked the Hole better.!, there is not that much room to dance or hang out really, it gets really hot and not a lot of room to breath.

Dance Dance Dance

Hydrate locked in on the finest DJ's around. Every night is a dance party. This club does it all. Retro Club, Drag Shows, Theme NIghts, and the best World Class DJ's
