Chicago Bar Bans 'Make America Great Again' Hats To Maintain 'Classy Environment'

September 24, 2018


A Chicago bar notified people who follow them on Facebook over the weekend that they decided to implement a ban on "Make America Great Again" hats in order to maintain a "classy environment."


"After much consternation and consideration and to maintain a 'classy environment,' Replay Lincoln Park has implemented a new and strictly enforced dress code," the post from Replay Lincoln Park stated. "No face tattoos, no specific hats, please see below. Let’s keep it classy Chicago. Sincerely, management."


The post included a photo of a man with facial tattoos with his eyes rolled in the back of his head and a photo of a "Make America Great Again" hat.


Mark Kwiatkowski, the bar's owner, told NBC 5 Chicago that he wrote the Facebook post himself, noting that he has not had to enforce his new rules yet.

"I was just frustrated and I just kind of wanted to make somewhat of a statement," Kwiatkowski said. "I felt like we did have an opportunity to say something that might draw some attention to this ugliness."


"I think what we would do is kindly ask them to remove [the hat] but we would let them in certainly and maybe have an opportunity to discuss all of this and see their opinions," Kwiatkowski continued.
