7 ways to meet singles in chicago
You don't have to fly solo if you don't want to. Grab a glass of whiskey or dirt-cheap PBR and elbow your way into the crowd packed wall-to-wall with hipsters.

6 best bars for singles in chicago
The neighborhood bar attracts a crowd from far beyond Humboldt Park borders, thanks to a funky, taxidermy-filled interior; large backyard patio with a summer bar and string lights; and cheap beer and shots. Boystown mega-bar Sidetrack is a sprawling complex with at least six bars and tons of flat-screens playing old and new music videos.

The dark lounge interior filled with leather chairs and a cozy fireplace has all the charm of a library of a British country estate, complete with the eccentric personalities you might find in an Agatha Christie novel. Mingle with out of town guests, young professionals visiting clients on business or the bridal parties of trust-fund kids in town for a wedding. Tucked inside the entertainment epicenter that is Thalia Hall, Tack Room is a hidden piano saloon that's decked out in equestrian-themed decor and wax-dripping candelabras.
The menu here is a menagerie of expertly crafted cocktails, wine, bar snacks, entrees and desserts. Coordinate your visit with a rotating schedule of piano players, who take a seat every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 9pm.

This popular, upscale Andersonville martini lounge serves up cocktails to a mixed straight and gay crowd, making it an equal opportunity meeting place. Waitresses in tight, short matching dresses flit from table to table with trays of vodka and sodas and Scotch. The music here is muted, making it easy to hear above the restaurant clatter when chatting with the person next to you at the bar—a major perk if you find yourself flirting with someone out of your age range.
The crowd here is composed primarily of townies, with a bit of overflow from the U. When the Cubs are playing, the entire mess could be cordoned off as the basis of a Bachelor spin-off.
