"Set phasers to stunning." - The Daily Mail (UK)
Experience nerd delight! Hang with bellydancing Wookiees, firespinning superheroes, and sword-wielding villains for fire, cosplay, and wonder in an intimate speakeasy - every other month, we pay tribute to fandoms from X-Men to Star Wars, Doctor Who to Silent Hill, Sandman to Lord of the Rings. These shows often sell out!

After the show: Enjoy a specialty cocktail, get a photo to take home, and meet the performers!

Limited capacity (max 65%). Patrons must be fully vaccinated + boosted (i.e. at least 1 booster dose if eligible). Masks required.

"Never seen a Wookiee bellydance? This can be remedied." - MSN
Voted "Best Dance Troupe" (runner up) by the Chicago Reader, Raks Geek is the premiere bellydance, flow arts, and fire performance company by geeks for geeks - they broke the internet's collective brain with a viral video of a Wookiee bellydancing to a four-piece Klingon band. Raks Geek is based in Chicago, but they've made waves nationally and internationally on MSN, The Daily Mail, and WGN-TV through their commitment to blend a high degree of artistic and technical mastery with fun, creativity, and themes from nerd culture.

"Absolutely electric from the moment they took the stage." - Third Coast Review

"Performances that channel favorite characters from movies and video games." - Chicago Tribune
