The Beauty Bar has become an institution in major cities across the country. Its recently opened location in Chicago is the tenth so far; and has already become a hub for sweet dance parties.
It's part-bar and part-salon, featuring specials like a martini and a manicure for $10. But the Chicago location, which opened this March, has become home to one of the city's best new monthly institutions: Rappin Ass Thursdays.
Local record label Fool's Gold has been running a weekly column by the same name for over a year, featuring MP3s and YouTube clips of new and classic hip-hop cuts. Starting this summer, Fool's Gold brought the party to Beauty Bar, where deejays Flosstradamus and Nick Catchdubs spin the best tracks from the '80s and '90s, and the best tracks from last week. Whether you want to get down on the dance floor or get your nails done, this party has got it covered.
