The Rainbo Club (1150 N. Damen) was established in Wicker Park in the 1930s and features artwork, booths, a central bar, a photobooth, music, metal grating, good cheap beer, and a pinball machine. Behind the bar is a clamshell stage painted white, once used by burlesque performers dancing to jazz. The bar is said to be the inspiration for the Tug and Maul in Algren’s book Man with the Golden Arm, and has been featured in High Fidelity and on the cover of Liz Phair’s album Exile in Guyville. Previously owned by WBBM announcer Alain Crane, the Rainbo is now operated by Gavin Morrison, who bought it in 1985.
