Dancing Ladies Mural

For my co-workers and I, the happy hour spot of choice these days is a bar in the Chicago Loop called Maxim’s. It’s a funny place for a lot of reasons, but the absolute number one reason is the strange mural covering two of the bars largest walls. The mural, which was probably painted in the 70’s, is of Moulin Rouge dancers, or maybe I should say “of one Moulin Rouge dancer” because, despite the fact that the artwork features about 20 different women, all of them have basically the same face. They all look like a sort of squinty-eyed young Joan Rivers. It’s creepy.
