We took them at their word: Our photographer hit Late Bar—Logan Square/Avondale’s new late-night dance spot, open until 4 a.m. most nights and 5 a.m. Saturdays—in the wee hours of Saturday morning and found an enthusiastic crowd still heating up the dance floor. Brought to you by the folks behind the long-running, club-hopping new-wave theme night Planet Earth, Late has been drawing lines out the door for its dedication to danceable tunes, from punk to Motown to reggae—a welcome addition to the scene in the wake of Sonotheque’s shuttering late last year. Check out our photos below.
