About Us

In 1999, Some Like It Black opened its doors in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood.

It welcomed artists of all facets to come and express themselves to a diverse group of devotees. People came from all across the city to enjoy live entertainment from local and famous poets and jazz musicians. The vibe of SLIB was something new and refreshing for the community.

Now 20 years later, Some Like It Black has come to the Kenwood / Oakland community with a new style and a new name "Thee Beauty Bar." The intimate space gives you a Miami like atmosphere and home like vibe.  We have added a full service bar with craft cocktails named after famous African Americans. A beauty counter where you can purchase "Thee Rich Girls" cosmetics.  Also known for our good tacos!. Welcome to "Thee Beauty Bar" aka Some Like It Black!
