I have faithfully gone to Mother's over the past few years, I cannot count the times I have been. Despite the fact that this place leaves MUCH to be desired, I continued to go there because I liked the crowd & it had a familiar feeling.

Had a GREAT time! music was awesome and consistent, not a bad song played. Bar staff made great drinks, a bit of a wait for drinks because they were so busy. Only speaking from the night i was there, i didn't see any sort of racism in this bar. all cultural groups were there and i didn't witness any issues regarding that. All around an AWESOME time, cant wait to go back!

I hate to think racism occured but I have my reasons. First things first, I called to set up my birthday party, I should mention that I tend to sound like what would be considered as having a "white girl" voice. They connect me to the manager and the party is arranged. VIP area is booked for my party and 10 of us were supposed to buy 2 $30 bracelets for drinks for 3 hours. Everything was set up, I called an hour before ai got there to confirm. When we arrive at the door, suddenly they don't remember having a party for my name. They call the manager I spoke with to come up, he sees me says he'll be right back. We waited for about 15 minutes outside nothing happens. We end up paying the entrance and I go to try to find the manager. He says gather your party and I'll meet you by the coatroom. We wait and no one shows up. We eventually gve up donated to the haiti fund for the drink deal and I go to search for the manager. I asked him about my VIP seating. Appartly the entire area is occupied by two people when it was originally arranged for me. We didin't let that get in the way. Signed up for Kareoke, 13 ppl in front of us...ok... We wait and I notice several "white" groups who I seen sign up after me get to sing first....so we go to the dance floor. Drunk white girl obsessed with the stripper pole beings a fight gets her ass pushed to the ground, her guy friends jump in, my friends jump in and of course, we get kicked out and the white b@@@@ sticks her fingers in the air laughing and gets to stay. Friends inside wo have nothing to do with the incident get kicked out for being seen talking to us earlier in the night. The white girl still in there dancing. The manager grabs one of the guys by his shirt to kick him out (he was not even near the fight or a anything). they guys asks what did I do, let go of my shirt, the manager pushes him towards the wall, grabs his wrists and the other security guards force him out grabbing him very inappropriately. The guy still confused about getting kick out gets mad cuz of the way their handdling him, he shoves them to let him go, manager hits him the guy hit him back and gets arrested. This is only half of it! This place sucks. No one they had a civil suit against them once before. DONT GO! I shouldve listened to the reviews but I had to find out the hard way.! I gave 1 star because 0 was not an option!

I truly wish we had ran across these reviews before we stepped into this place. Mind you.. $5 fee to enter, donated $5 to the "Haiti Fund" and STILL paid a rediculous price for WATERED down drinks. Three hours later we were escorted out/ over an incident that we tried to avoid... but somehow got caught in the crossfire... leaving us to fend for ourselves. Try that trash in a prodominately hispanic establishment... then again," WE have CLASS" and know how to act when we mingle with our "OWN". It's a crying shame to even see it in that perspective, however it was sadly proven last night. Secuirty is racist towards HISPANICS & AFRICAN AMERICANS! POINT BLANK!.. ===============STAY AWAY==================

l'll give you one star ONLY because the music was good...

As we all know fights break out due to drunkenness and stupidity. If your girl cant handle her liquor, please be a man and take care of your dog. Group of friends out celebrating, Caucasian chick gets crazy drunk, pushes a friend and they start fighting. Self defense right? Or are you supposed to stand there and take it just because you are a bit darker toned then the other person? Then 5 guys accompanying this "lady" tries putting their hands on girls... Guess who gets kicked out? The luscious bodacious group of girls that were accompanied by gentlemen and military members who tired stopping everything and the Caucasians were allowed to stay in the bar. Not to mention security were also Caucasian who called the Caucasian cops to escort us out as if we were criminals! Ha! We are no longer is the 20th century suckers. Karma is in fact just like that crazy drunk..a b*&$h!

Our first and last time...Drinks are overpriced and you get ZERO value for your buck, come on, I don't wanna get a glass full of ice. Might as well go to Walgreens across the street and buy a bag of ice and enjoy. Friday night and the place is empty, empty, empty, cuz no one wants to go to this crap hole.

The bottom line is, its not worth your money and time. Who is gonna give me my 2 hours of my life back now? Lastly, paying $5 cover to get in is just ridiculous for this *hit hole.

Hey Mr. Owner, you bar sucks.

P.S. I was very generous when I gave it a one star, go figure.

OK, people bear with me because this is the first time I'm using this site. Now, regarding Mothers Lounge/Bar, Chicago, IL. Well, this bar has been the subject of numerous racial issues and their obvious complaints down through the decades. For instance, many of the young twenty somethings, many not even born during this instance, won't know that during the Chicago Bears Superbowl heyday that a Bears player had a big problem gaining entry; also, a Chicago Bulls Basketball player-during the period when the Bulls won the season championship, '95, had a similar problem with gaining entry. So, because of all of this down through the years one-and the media-should ask, just who owns this Mothers establishment!? Hm, who??? Most likely they are owned by the Chicago Mob, get it, the Syndicate, the Outfit do I make myself clear!? This is why business' such as these can do these type of things and actually still stay in business. Now, I have no proof of what I've just stated, nor do I really even know. But being a life long Chicago resident, born and raised, I would say I'm pretty much on the money. Also, this type of thing goes along with the current Mayoral Administration, ie. Daley. Want this to end Chicago, well, don't vote for Daley during the upcoming election; put his challenger in, whomever this person may be, just to shake things up. Change will come at that point, but not until. Later, L. D. Green

I have had several poor experiences at Mother's before. Now that they have instituted an "WHITES ONLY" policy. I guess they won't have to worry about me spending another dime in this establishment. I look forward to the day I drive by and see this place closed.

It's special because it's not very friendly, especially if you are an African American, based on what I am reading in the news. (Those Wash. U. guys were very smart to try out the experiment by switching baggy jeans between a black and a white classmate.) But getting beyond that, I must say that as someone who really likes Chicago and its various restaurants and nightclubs, I was surprised by the low standards of this place. Not very impressive, and given the recent events, not worth going out of your way to patronize. Just choose one of a million other establishments that are good and do not discriminate. (Unless, of course, you are a member of the KKK or skinheads. They would love this joint.)

Anyone who works at this bar should be ashamed, and those who visit this bar should also. Patronizing this bar shows your support for their bigotry.

Show that you support basic human rights by boycotting this bar.

Mother's wasn't good enough for me when I was doing my college undergrad... and it shouldn't be good enough for ANYBODY in the 21st century.

Bad architecture meets worst atmosphere and the dopiest bouncers grilling you to get in to the most pathetic club in the city of Chicago.

I went to Exit for my birthday a couple of years ago and there were only four people there besides my party... and they were all bartenders. Yet Exit *still* had more class empty than Mother's will ever packed to the rafters with drifters that don't know any better.

You'd have a better time at any bar in town with a big flatscreen TV on the day of a bears game than you would at this place.

...and that's being charitable.

(Did I mention they have this thing about not letting blacks in, too? Just figured I'd throw that out there in case you needed ANOTHER reason not to go here.)

Look at the date of the reviews obviously this place has had problems over the years. This place needs to be boycotted and closed down for good. People of all colors, especially minorities need to take their green elsewhere. I have been there and they do have a pretty lame staff. The bouncers are some of the worst that I have seen. The only reason they get business is because of Rush St.. I hope they are sued, lose and go out of business. Maybe the employees there will have a new outlook on life when they are pounding the pavement-keeping their pants up.

About 200 Washington University seniors were attending Mother??s Night Club Original bar on Saturday night as part of their class trip to Chicago, sponsored by the Senior Class Council. According to Senior Class President Fernando Cutz, the six black students were told they would not be allowed in because of their failure to comply with the bar??s ??baggy jeans? policy. A few white students who had already been admitted then came out to demonstrate that their jeans were more ??baggy,? but the black students were still denied admission.

The six students offered to change their clothes, but the bar manager still refused to allow them in. The white students were allowed to return.

The bouncers said it was because of their baggy pants, but some of the white students had on even baggier pants and they weren't denied entry. Ruined our senior trip, I will never go here again and I will make a point to tell everyone I know that it's unconscionable to ever patronize Mother's.

The worst experience of my life!!!! The bouncers are ignorant and biased against people of color. They denied my husband access due to his wardrobe my husband changed his clothes and meanwhile they allowed a white man to enter even though he had on gymshoes like my husband did. When asked what the difference was they said that they did not say that. After my husband changed his shoes and his shirt they still did not let him enter this time because of "baggy jeans". When asked to see the manager the manager refused to come out. When my husband originally asked what was wrong with his attire they only mentioned the shoes and tthe shirt not the pants. I guess they were not expecting him to go change so they made another rule to deny us.The bouncers then tried to say we were drunk and that was an outright lie. By the reviews I have read I can see that this is not an islolated case. Why do we continue to give this club our hard earned money when they clearly have a problem with race. This place should be shut down. BOYCOTT

The bouncers laughed at us, then threw us out as we went outside to smoke. We nicely asked why, and they answered"because we can and we have the power" one of the bouncers was blk, while the other was white with slicked back hair. These bouncers are obviously abusing their power. I will never consider going back there, and will inform others of my horrible exeprience. If you want the bouncers to treat you like a worthless piece of trash, then go right in, but if you dont want that, then simly go somewhere elese.

Me and my caucasian friends attempted to go to Mothers. While we were in line, the bouncers harrassed us, informed us that we coudln't get in because we were to f'ed up(none of us had had a drink all day!). We explained that we were as sober as could be, and hand't had a drink all day, and they just refused service to use, and informed us that if we didn't exit the line they would call the Police on us. We did not do a single thing, and we were treated as criminals, while they were simply laughing. These bouncers are jokes and need a dose of reality. We talked to a Cop nearby, and he responded with "its a private business, they have the right to refuse service to anyone they wish, as unfair as it may seem, they have the right" So we walked away and went to one of the bars nearby and had a good time. I will never ever consider going back to Mothers, and will inform others of my experience with them.

Me and my caucasian friends attempted to go to Mothers. While we were in line, the bouncers harrassed us, informed us that we coudln't get in because we were to f'ed up(none of us had had a drink all day!).

Pros: none!

Cons: the bouncers treat you like garbage, they think they own the place

WE MAKE A POINT OF GOING TO MOTHERS AT LEAST EVERY COUPLE MONTHS. THE WAIT STAFF IS GREAT - OUTGOING AND BEYOND FRIENDLY. AS FOR THE ATMOSPHERE IT IS FUN!!! THE MUSIC IS GREAT AND IF YOU ARENT UP TO THE "DANCING" THEN THE FRONT HAS KARAOKEE WHICH IS A BLAST TOO - - WHETHER YOU WANT TO SING OR LAUGH AT OTHERS SING. IT IS A BLAST. BY THE WAY - - IT IS SUPER CLEAN AND YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE.

My girlfriends and I were in town for a long weekend and wanted to have a great time. This was the place to be! The staff was great! If you get to Chicago you need to go to The Original Mother's. In the front room they have one type of music and its more of a sit down bar atmospher. In the back is a big room with a nice size dance floor with 2 bars. The entire staff is HOT, guys and girls!! Gotta go there!!

This is the worst place I've ever been to. They discriminated against us for being hispanic. I'm not saying it because I'm all about Latin pride or anything like that. I'm serious we had a party planned for a cousins of mine and they did eveything in their power to throw us out. The manager was a rudest person there. We've never been as mistrated as wewere when we went to this place. AVOID if possible.... It was horrible....

I've been going to the Division street clubs for years, and recently returned to Original Mothers, and OOH the surprises! First it seems they have new owners, and it looks like the owners CARE! They have re-vamped the inside, and brought back the Live Music to Division Street with weekly summer shows Wednesday through Friday, and a Live Band Karaoke Contest on Thursdays. The music lounge has history back to the 60's and holds some 600 sweaty rockers, and a staff that loves the place. It's a formula for a good time. On weekends, they do live deejays spinning current disco and house hits in the back room. After years of trekking across town to some out of the way venue to see music, I can finally walk down the street. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Pros: Great Sound, Valet Parking, Woman Operated

Cons: Downstairs

To enter, patrons walk downstairs through a menacing plaster mouth not unlike Monstro's in "Pinocchio." There's a good selection of beers on tap at the circular island bar, and the prices aren't bad considering theā€¦
