United States: Will ‘Night Mayor’ concept catch on?

Party Hard, Negotiate Harder

Cities with compact, bar-heavy neighborhoods like Austin’s Sixth Street also tend to have better party cred. “Chicago has a great neighborhood-based bar scene,” says Shawn Hazen, who works for Roscoe’s, a gay bar in Boystown—the neighborhood that borders Wrigleyville. “You have the gayest street in Chicago, one block from the straightest street in Chicago,” he says. “It makes for some pretty funny interactions.”

Chicago also offers proof that you don’t need warm weather to keep the Party Entertainment going. “I’ve seen people check their coat at the beginning of the night and then run up and down the street all night long without it—do a shot, dance a little, then go to the next club,” says Hazen. “You gotta keep warm.”
