Editor's Review   One of the oldest leather bars in Chicago, Touché has occupied a number of locations over the years. Currently, it can be found in Rogers Park, the northernmost neighborhood in Chicago, on N. Clark St. Though it is a bit of a hike from the main strip of gay bars down in Lakeview, it is next door to Jackhammer and only a short cab ride from several other bars along Clark St, including the Eagle. Because of this, Touché tends to draw a mixed crowd, and at times can feel more like a neighborhood bar then a leather bar. It is also the home of the wildly popular Great Lakes Bears bar night, held on the first Saturday of the month. A definite must for anyone who likes his men big and beefy.

Touché is divided into two main sections, a front bar and a back bar. The front bar is a fairly large, open space, with a bar running along one wall and a video poker machine, a dart machine, and a pinball machine along the other. There is an ATM located near the front door, and towards the back of the room is a pool table. Though the bar primarily plays dance music, there is no dance floor.

Down a short hallway, you'll find the back bar. Open every night except Monday and Wednesday, the back bar is close in size to the front bar, but it's dimmer lighting and more cluttered layout, including a steel cage that is several feet from the door, make it seem like a smaller space. Towards the back of the room is a small bar, and throughout you'll find benches and bar stools for seating. The crowd in the back bar tends to be more "social", especially if you venture behind the wall of tires that can be found near the rear of the room.

I luv it! that steel cage has my attnetion everytime i go there, im going to crawl in it one of these nites to see what happens. I was warned a couple times that i will get locked in if i do. The bar tender on wek nites is great, the week end guy was ok, but he was to busy to chat. Dark dirty cheap atspohere is a major turn on. - ItsTooFun

Hot!!! The place smelled a little funky, but as soon as i got to the back room, i understood why. With all the hot sweaty boys up in my grill, i wished i had brought my leather whip. There's always next time ;) - gayluvrxs
