Chicago's Best Dance Bars: Celebrate Beyonce's Birthday At These Nightlife Hotspots

Ring the alarm, Chicago! In addition to being the day immediately following the three-day Labor Day weekend, Tuesday holds another distinction some music fans probably deem worthy of federal holiday status.

Tuesday marks the 31st birthday of pop-soul-hip hop musician -- and actress! -- Beyoncé Knowles.

Coming so fast on the heels of a holiday weekend, we here at HuffPost Chicago couldn't help but feel the urge to keep the mood light. We've taken the opportunity to round up some of our favorite dance bars in the city for those who might be feeling drawn to a dance floor in honor of Mrs. Shawn Carter's pop genius.

Scroll down for our picks -- plus a Bey-Day Spotify playlist -- and let us know in the comments if we neglected to mention your favorite Chicago dancing spot.
