Guests enjoying the bar

As the sun sets on Wicker Park, Bordel’s sumptuous candlelit interiors beckon with nightly entertainment on stage, offering a premier cast of jazz musicians and burlesque performers.

In between stage performances, Bordel remains one of the city’s top destinations for discovering new talent and hearing high-profile DJs. 

The soul of Bordel lies in its spectacle. Be seduced by the sights, sounds and flavors of Bordel as you are transported to the licentious quarters of the City of Light with Chicago’s sexiest cabaret shows.

Through the hidden door and up the leopard-print stairs, you will find yourself inside Bordel, appointed with pink velvet sofas and drapes, tasseled chandeliers, vintage bronze “cherub” sconces, Persian Bokhara hand-knotted rugs and walls covered in custom, handcrafted wallpaper inspired by 20th century American pulp cover artistry.
