Of the dozens of predominantly gay bars that line North Halstead Street in Boys Town, Roscoe's is neither the glitziest nor the coziest. It is, however, one of the friendliest, and—with six separate bars, a good-sized dance floor, and a beer garden out back—quite possibly the biggest. If the main bar is too noisy and crowded, look for a place to sit near the pool table or one of the smaller, lower-key lounges (one of which has a fireplace). The drinks are nothing special—20 predictable beers on tap, and your usual array of frozen cocktails—but the weekly parties are: Mondays and Wednesdays are karaoke nights, Tuesday is "Drag Race" night, and Sundays are "Male Call," with a smorgasbord of flirting games. DJ-spun Top 40 fuels the popular weekend dance parties, and the delightfully raunchy wet-boxer-shorts contest still packs 'em in the last Thursday of each month.

Open Mondays through Fridays noon to 2 am, Saturdays 11 am to 3 am, Sundays 11 am to 2 am.
