Thanks for checking out our post that is going to fully break down the best LGBT friendly date night ideas in Chicago. Most of these tips can also work for a date during the day in your area or really any time you want to meet up with your special someone.
The good news is that we live in a much different world than we used to even a decade ago. To be honest these days you can pretty much go anywhere you want and not have to worry about whether your Chicago date spots will be gay, lesbian, or any kind of LGBT friendly.
We aren’t saying the world has become perfect in this regard, but you probably won’t have any issues if you go grab a meal at a restaurant or café that we aren’t listing as a good local LGBT friendly date spot. Or if you want to go hang out at any park or visit any place that has fun things to do we highly recommend you just do it and not worry about what other people think.
With that said we also know it isn’t always that easy, so we will definitely be sharing some great lesbian and gay date night ideas near you. We aren’t going to be getting into the places to party since we have already written a full Chi Town gay and lesbian bar guide which you can find there if you want to go out after your fun early evening together.
Local LGBT Friendly Restaurants & Cafes For A Date
There are plenty of other places around the city that would also be a great option, but for some well known LGBT friendly restaurants and cafes for a date in Chicago try:
- Sidetrack at 3349 N Halsted St
- Big Chicks at 5024 N Sheridan Rd
- Meeting House Tavern at 5025 N Clark St
- Wood at 3335 N Halsted St
- D.S. Tequila Company at 3352 N Halsted St

- Kit Kat Lounge at 3700 N Halsted St
Many of the above can be found in the main LGBT areas near you Boystown and Andersonville. If you are a local you are probably already well aware of that, if you are new to the city then that may be where you want to spend a lot of your time.
We don’t want to be a broken record but when looking for a good place for a gay or lesbian date night in your area you can probably go to any restaurant or café in the city and have just as good of a time as you would at any of the above spots.
