I got a yelp account to review this place because I was just that appalled.

I got a tanning membership there because it was nearby, the pricing was fair, and they were pet friendly. Those are the nicest things that I can say.

So the employees there are just the sweetest people, but the owner Matt is moody at best and obnoxious at worst.

A few days ago, the Monday after Pride Weekend, Matt lost his temper at me for no apparent reason, (his Pride wasn't great or somebody else agitated him that day?). He started screaming at me in the street and accused me of calling one of his other customers names, why would anybody go and do that? I have a small package because that's all that I would ever need. I guess that he was frustrated that he couldn't up-sell me any of the other multifarious extra stuff that just wouldn't be a good fit for me. By the way, I bought a tanning lotion online because they didn't sell a brand that I like.

Matt actually said "I don't need the $180 dollars that you spend at my salon, it's too much work, you f***ing Jew."

That's right Matt doesn't like Jewish people or he believes that people who don't spend a huge amount of money must be Jewish. Last I checked, spending over a $100 is a sizable amount, but I wasn't buying his most profitable merchandise - that must be it. I saw another yelp review (see Dana L's review which might be one of the "filtered" reviews - http://www.yelp.com/user?) where in Matt made Anti-Semitic remarks to another person too. I'm not Jewish though, but all that says is that Matt isn't cut out to run a Nazi eugenics program. It's really shocking that somebody with two synagogues in the neighborhood would actually scream Anti-Semitic comments in the street. His other customers, the people on the street, and the people in the bar next door heard Matt ranting about not liking Jews. I guess that only gentiles are treated respectfully at Halsted Street Beach which the owner wanted to be public about.

I was thinking about going somewhere else for the last several weeks because Matt had been exceptionally nasty around me and I considered some other issues that I was aware of.

I'm hesitant to go into the details on the internet, but let's just say there are some POWERFUL and COMPELLING reasons that I would NEVER want to get a waxing or facial, well anything in the massage room would be poor judgment.

You want to avoid this place. The owner Matt is only nice when you first buy something or if he believes that he can talk you into making a large purchase. There are plenty of other reputable places that you can go. Most of the customers are new customers, from some online deal. Matt is losing his long time customers for a variety of good reasons.

This place is great! I used to tan at LA and its gross there. I walked into Halsted Street Beach and was greeted with happy faces and even hugs! Very fun place! Packages are reasonable and Matt even let me tan after the place was closed! He said if he's there and the lights are on youre welcome to come on in!

Matt and crew provide an excellent tanning experience. Friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to accommodate. After being there only one time, Matt remembered our names and greeted us personally. Great facilities and products.

Halsted Street Beach Tanning is the best tanning salon in Chicago (perhaps in the world), hands town.

The staff is unusually knowledgeable, friendly and eager to help. They make sure you get the deepest tan possible without burning. They take the time to get to know each customer. The owner (Matt) is in the salon on a regular basis and knows every customer by name. Walk in the front door and you'll feel like you've stepped into a party with a group of old friends.

The beds are always clean. You can plug in your iPod and play your music through the built in speakers in each bed. The have a variety of other services available too, including waxing and massages.

I'll never tan anywhere else!

I love Halstead Street Beach!! I've never been big into tanning, but the atmosphere is not your typical tanning salon. It's fun, super friendly and the dance beats keep your toes tappin while your bod is bronzin. It's non-threatening, the way that "trendy" hot-spot salons are, and they're not pushy at all. They carry the most delicious lotions, offer massage packages and always have hillariously rockin window displays! So if you're looking for quaint little Halsted oasis, this is your place :)

Halstead Tanning is an absolute rainbow of a gem! Nestled in between a couple neighborhood bars, flower shop, and some Boystown novelty stores, I love the friendly staff, dance music, and colorful decorations. After each visit, I always leave feeling like I've been basking on an island full of sun. This is my favorite tanning salon ever (I've lived in Miami and Atlanta), and this place is all about FUN & ATMOSPHERE! Plus the $5 late-night tans (9-10 pm or 10-11 pm) are hard to beat!

Pros: AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE! Good dance music. Value-packed $5 late-night tans : )

Cons: Parking can be a bit tricky due to heavy traffic from Wrigley.

Halsted Street Beach is a very friendly and efficient tanning salon that I go to quite frequently. The rooms are private and very clean. Matt and his team are very knowledgable and educate you on safe tanning. Not only do I tan there, but I also purchase their skin care products and receive massages (very good). Definitely recommend.
