It’s hard to beat the king. Or, in this case, the queen. If trans ladies are your jam, it’s hard to beat the 1am crowd at Berlin nightclub in Lakeview. Shocker. This place has been the pansexual center of Chicago as a cultural destination since most of this publication’s readers were infants. No surprise then that it seems the most popular destination for nighthawk tucked-in women decked out in their torch-song finest. If you like a little warm-up before launching into your night of trans-lass prowling, drop by on the first and third Saturday of the month from 9pm-11:30pm for performances by the spectacular House of Santana.
