This place is the best you will find in Northern Illinois, and in fact, as it appears, it sits in a safe neighborhood. I have gone here a number of times on my bicycle and have had quite a bit of fun, even despite the fact that it is in Illinois, and Illinoisans are generally not very nice people. Of course, then again, it is very close to Chicago proper, and in Chicagoland, people are in fact quite a bit friendlier in and close to the city (outside of the ghetto) than in the suburbs (especially the collar county area). Apparently, it has not one, but 3 dance areas! One in the saloon, another near the main entrance just past the dining area, and another behind the bean bag area. However, the main part of all dancing takes place in the saloon. Social/regular nightclub dancing takes place on Saturday night from about 10:30 pm on. Fridays are Country Line dancing, and apparently, Thursdays are Ladies' Nights. A valid photo ID is required, and there is a $5 cover charge. The club does, however, have a strict and heavily enforced dress code, prohibiting the following types of clothing;
Clothing with rude and vulgar writing, symbols, and such
Clothing with anything gang related (crowns, pitchforks, and such) on them
Basically, it is the exact same type of dress code found in schools, especially high schools.

Info update; There is apparently an elevated wooden platform with black railings in the saloon located on the edge of the dance floor, and for everyone's information, that platform is totally off limits to guys; only women are allowed on that elevated platform. Additionally, plain white T shirts are also apparently prohibited at the club.
Also, as a warning, many single adults will not find 115 Bourbon Street very suitable or fun for them as, despite the club's name and it's Mardi Gras style theme, it is still Illinois, and Illinoisans are, in general, not nice or sociable people. This highly includes Chicago. So basically, don't let the Mardi Gras and "Big Easy" theme of the club convince you; Chicago has totally nowhere near the kind of friendly social atmosphere that New Orleans may have. In fact, Chicago, as well as Illinois, is actually more of a social desert than anything else socialwise.
