Hydrate Nightclub and Elixir Lounge Tip Jar

The State of Illinois has mandated the closing of all bars and restaurants in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19.  Hydrate Nightclub and Elixir Lounge, has been forced to close for the indefinite future. While our community continues to navigate these unprecedented times, we share in the concern for our neighbors, friends and family whose livelihoods depend on the entertainment, service and hospitality industry. 

In working to find helpful and creative ways to support each other, we have created a GoFundMe page where 100% of the money raised will go to the staff of Hydrate Nightclub and Elixir Lounge, DJs, Drag Queens, and Dancers.

If we've put a smile on your face, showed you a good time, tossed you a shot or two on the house, please feel free to donate what you can. 

Every little bit helps. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, we look forward to the day we can reopen our doors and again share another dance, a cold cocktail, and space for you and your friends to blow off steam at the end of a tough work week.

Stay well and we hope to see you all soon!
