    The sound is great. The whole setup was great. And no lame barricades for hardcore shows I saw there like Judge and H20

    Go to the balcony - better view and less crowds (which means better access to bar and bathrooms too).

    Security is fucking tight, sober up for like 5 minutes and don't act a fool. After that drinking and smoking do in the middle of the audience. Good venue tho.

    Premier venue in the city. Hip place in the hippest part of town. Saw the Pumpkins open the Siamese Dream tour here...that's what made me start writing music. Don't blame them...couldn't have known.

    If you're early in the line...marathon sprint inside when doors open. Take the stairs left. 2 flights. And sit at a table like a golden god

    A lot of their shows are 18+ so you don't have to be 21 to get in. Just check online in advance. The tickets are cheaper online anyway!

    One of the best venues in the city (and my first Chicago show when I moved here). Can be hot during the summer, but the quality of acts booked here more than make up for it.

    El grunge tuvo su casa en este lugar, que abrió sus puertas desde 1982. Aquí nacieron los grupos Smashing Pumpkins, Urge Overkill, Local H, Liz Phair y Veruca Salt. Perry Farrell continua visitándolo.
