The Parties

Chances dances is a queer dance party and collective dedicated to building safer spaces in Chicago since 2005. Read on to find out more about our parties, our organizers, and what folks have said about us.

Our monthly parties:



1959 W. Dickens Ave., Chicago, IL 
10pm-2am / FREE

Off Chances is the cruisy and conversational sister to Chances Dances, featuring Cheap Drinks, Good Music, Free Stuff, and Queer People.

All Chances parties recognize the power of consent, welcome all gender expressions, and feature gender neutral bathrooms. The Hideout and Subterranean are wheelchair accessible but do not have ADA accessible bathrooms. Danny’s is not wheelchair accessible. Please don’t hesitate to contact us regarding any questions or issues about these spaces:

NOTE: We had our last regularly scheduled Saturday night at the Hideout in April. We are so thankful for the Hideout for believing in us and our mission. We'll be back to party old school style with them in September, so look out for that. In the meantime, our very own The Lady Speedstick is keeping the bounce alive on the first Saturdays at the Hideout with CLUB SODA. She'd love to see you there!
