  • Sidetrack never does me wrong. Every time I come here I have a great time. People watching paradise, and I always end up running into an interesting character or two. I decided to write the review now because I have been to sidetracks I'd say a dozen times - but this is the first time I actually spent any money there! I always would come here with buddies but didn't buy a drink. This time I got a gin and tonic and it got the job done more than 40oz of Cesar's margaritas. Which should surprise no one, haha. Great atmosphere, and a great outdoor area. Highly recommended if you are in Boystown.

  • Sidetrack is definitely not that type of cruise bar. The poster must be thinking of Touche.

  • I don't know what that person is talking about "watching" the mirrors in the men's room. It isn't like that at all.
