Sally Marvel on velvet banquette
The soul of Bordel lies in its spectacle. On the other side of its hidden door, guests are welcomed with music and performances unlike any other venue in Chicago — from the playful rhythms of a jazz trio at Wednesday’s Hôtel des Artistes to the fire, sex and magic of Vaudeville Thursdays. On Fridays, guests are transported to Andalucía as they experience a live flamenco performance, while Saturdays evoke the hip soul of Paris’ Quartier Pigalle as DJs spin deep and sexy beats alongside burlesque and flamenco performances for the aptly named Velvet.

  • Hôtel des Artistes — Talented and of-the-moment local artists play live jazz, soul, Latin and more
  • Vaudeville — Sensual and provocative performances ranging from magic to fire eating, burlesque and more
  • Flamenco — A celebration of the world-famous music and the passionate dancing that accompanies it born in Andalucía 
  • Velvet — DJs spin deep and sexy beats alongside spontaneous burlesque performances
