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!
Friday lube wrestling is HOT. A good place for late night (last chance) hook-ups at 4am.
I met Brent Corrigan here and he was really cute. Hydrate always seems to have a great special or show going!
Who knew that they were open so late on a Tuesday! I think DJR is really cute!
They seem to always bring in the best national DJs
The door guy Jimmy is really hot and such a nice guy
This place is a blast. The staff is very friendly! You can't go wrong visiting Hydrate!
I miss Chris Eterno at Felt... I'm glad I found him at Hydrate on Wednesday. Hydrate has the best music and djs. Best dance club on Halsted!
Hydrate is such a great bar to go to. It's fun to just hang out and talk with all the bar staff. They are very personable, and really try to go out of their way to make sure that you are having a good time.
I'm glad Hydrate came onto the scene, just wish I started going there sooner!
