Exit has a reputation for being scary, where all manner of kinky stuff goes on.
To me, Exit is like being home where music is hard and people dress like freaks.
Downstairs, the bar is usually whipped into shape by Mistress Donna. In back, stairs lead up to the dancefloor. Bars at either end host Chicagos friendliest industrial bartenders - Christy, Carolyn and Kristin.
Downstairs is like a local pub. However, these locals are tattooed, pierced and spiked. Music is loud Punk or Metal and cheezy porn plays over the bar.
Dancefloor open Thursday Sunday where the less agile line the fence watching people dance to thumping industrial. Weekends can get packed, especially when the trixie bus arrives after 2.
Depending on the night, Jeff Moyer, Joe Garza or Pascal spin. All informed on the latest industrial. Sundays, Moyer spins a variety of newwave, goth, synthpop and industrial.
Pros: music, friends, music
Cons: trixies who gawk, trixies making fun, trixies can't dance
