Leather Club Night at Touché

Since 1977, Friday Night has been CLUB NIGHT at Touché. One look around the room and you can see that Touché is home to many of Chicago’s leather clubs. The back bar is called the CLUB ROOM which is dedicated to the many other clubs from across the US that have presented their colors to Touché. And sadly the colors of many Chicago Clubs lost when AIDs hit, still find a place of honor on the walls. So Touché s 40th anniversary celebration continues with A NIGHT OF BROTHERHOOD on Friday, November 3rd. All local leather/fetish clubs have been invited to join in for this important night. Lots of club history will be on the walls. Leather 64TEN has donated $40 gift certificates as raffle prizes along with a few gift packs of Touché Year 40 gear. Club members in their colors get discounted drinks and there will select drink specials for all.

Tons of photos and posters from many of the wild parties the bar has hosted over the years on display. Touché is rolling back prices to 1977 levels on a few choice drinks. Back then 75¢ got you a can of Miller Lite (Bud Light was not made yet), Smirnoff was the top selling call vodka and they sold it for $1 and Jack Daniels was hot as it is today and they served it up for just $1.50! This night you can enjoy all three at the same prices they offered back then all night long. To entertain you, the Tony nominated cabaret legend Sharon McNight will perform at 9:30pm.
