National Pastime Theater is located at 4139 N. Broadway, Chicago. Enter through the raunchy storefront, past the years of smoky haze into the authentic speakeasy turned theater where the debaucherous scandals of the past give life to the art of today. Excitement is palpable, temptation extreme. No other theater in Chicago can offer such libidinous exploitation of your senses. Where else but the National Pastime Theater lives the promise of the impossible? There are no other provocateurs in Chicago.
For those with the veracious appetite for sensuality, the theater can be reached by the #36 Broadway bus, the Sheridan El and several other bus lines. Parking is available for $10 one block south-east at the corner of Belle Plaine and Clarendon.
