The only logical conclusion to be drawn is that the name of this iconic singles joint is intended to be ironic… If your mother knew what you did here, she wouldn’t be able to get a good night’s rest for a very long time.
Most people who go to Mother’s are looking for love—at least for one night—especially those who travel from the suburbs or out of town to recreate scenes from About Last Night with Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, which were shot in part here. The heart depicted in the Mother’s logo reveals the truth: most people who go to Mother’s are looking for love.
Since they first opened their doors in 1968, it has been like this. After descending into the subterranean depths, you will arrive in the front area to discover a dance floor and a DJ playing songs from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. The back of Division Street houses its original and largest dance floor, where resident DJs often spin the most up-to-date and popular dance music on weekends.
The Original Mother’s is the largest of our venues on Division Street, and we want you to come to check it out so that you can see what all of your friends and the people in the neighborhoods are raving about. On the dance floor, we’ll look forward to seeing you!
You can also enjoy and do fun at The Signature Lounge at the 96th; this is budget-friendly for a date, and they offer walk-in seating by the window in Chicago,IL only.
