The Closet is a neighborhood bar for the whole neighborhood. A staple in the Boystown community, the Closet walls have been a second home to many. The bar was established in July of 1978 by two women, Judi and Rose. This was quite the accomplishment especially when you consider…2 women…2 lesbians…starting a business in the 70’s.
The Closet is a great place to kick back with friends or meet new people.
Relax while watching the newest releases in music videos, as well as, enjoying a walk down memory lane with our massive collection from earlier decades.
The Closet is a place to take in “the best view on Broadway” while sipping
THE BEST BLOODY MARYS!!!
Whether you are looking for a nice wind-down after work, a kick start for your night, or a destination to hang-out and have fun…THIS IS YOUR SPOT!!!
