“Had a blast ever time we went”
Review of Baton Show Lounge

Baton Show Lounge
Ranked #42 of 569 Nightlife in Chicago
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We have gone to impersonator shows in LA, Vegas, San Francisco and the Baton holds up against them just fine. It is not Broadway so don't expect it to be, but it is good entertainment with a talented cast that do a great job. And like many gay men, they are very good at poking a little fun at themselves which is one of the things that makes it real ok for me as a straight guy to be there. Because it is a fun date with my wife we have come back a few times and will do it again.

Went here with a friend on a Sunday night. Must be an off night, as they had plenty of empty seats. That didn't stop the performers from giving us a great show. Some of the best time I've ever had.

Go in a group, enjoy the experience and marvel at the face and bodies, but don't expect high quality lip-synching. The show is a fun experience if you've never been to a drag cabaret before. The costumes are great and the 'girls' put on a good show.

We had so much fun celebrating with our bride to be at the Baton Show Lounge.
The show was a lot of fun and it was a great atmosphere for a bachelorette party.
The only downfall was we had the upper level seating which we were still able to see everything but out party was separated into two groups and it would have been better to be a little closer. SO book your tickets well in advance for a weekend show.
The tickets are reasonable and there is a two drink minimum but drinks prices are average.

We booked tickets for the show about 3 weeks in advance after reading that we should book early to get a good seat. HOWEVER, that is ONLY for Friday and Saturday shows. The Sunday shows have very poor attendance and you will have no trouble getting a seat. The show was funny overall but not great and probably not worth our time. The ladies were very low energy the night we were there - probably based on the limited number in the crowd. I was very surprised that there was no real singing at this show.The entertainers had terrible lip-syncing and interesting dancing. They seemed to be just moving around the stage basically asking for money. I really expect to be entertained before I tip someone. I felt like we were shamed into giving money to some of the entertainers. Do not go on a Sunday evening - it is not worth the money or time.
