We do live music.
Great place to see a show and watch blackhawks games! Also, try the black bean burger it's amazing!
Only tip you need to know is how amazing the back rooftop balcony is on a summer night. Best place to enjoy a cold beer IMO
This was the venue of the inaugural "Rock the Red" show, in 2010!
Order a Schlitz and use the two quarters from your change to play pinball.
They have a Photo Booth
Great sound, but it can be LOUD. Bring earplugs.
For a lot of shows, the security guys will have people waiting outside to get in. If it's cold/rainy/whatever, just tell them you're there to get something to eat and you can wait inside.
Nosh on delish edibles while listening to bands like Blonde Redhead and !!!. For best acoustics, snag a spot in the center of the room.
visit upstairs with Dino!!!
Play pinball: Bobby Orr Power Play, Champion Pub, Creature from the Black Lagoon, FunHouse, Gilligan's Island, Seawitch, The Addams Family
Sucks that they don't allow stage diving or crowd surfing. Pretty good place to see a show, regardless.
Jaegger is for Freshmen. Try a chilled shot of locally-made 70 Proof hum, The World's Most Unique Rum.
Go upstairs and play pinball. They have four games, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Gilligans Island, Champion Pub Fighter & Addams Family...all in decent shape!
Even though this venue isn't downtown downtown there is plenty of ways to get to it! First, there is plenty of street parking. Second, a CTA line runs right by the venue.
FANTASTIC beer selection. Great venue. Cool security (ie, they don't mind stage diving, if you are into that) Veggie food for veggie folks. If it's super late and you need a cab, call American or Yell
Summer Camp 2011 Music Festival artist Two Fresh will be performing here on 2/26! Come check them out!!
Always forget its closed on Mondays.
If you need a cab, the security guys will call one for you .
Great place to catch a show, great beer list. If you work in the loop, grab a bite and then a show.
metal movie nights upstairs on weds.
Belgian frites with fried egg and basil aioli. Oh, and-- I guess-- live music.
As most have noted, this place has a fantastic beer selection
You get really looked after here backstage. sound engineer was great, great quality on and off stage. Nice food too, salads were great, makes a change from your normal bar burgers
Photo booth, good beer selection, and the best crowd! Shame on you if you missed it.
This is literally the worst kitchen I have ever eaten anything from. Ugh.
There are FOUR pinball machines. And one is a BOXING pinball!!!
$3 Schlitz drafts, $4 PBR tall boys, and a pretty nice craft/import list in the bar. As a shorty, I appreciate that I can ALWAYS see the stage. Plus, there is pinball. Wins all around.
Love it! The sound was amazing!
First five people to chexk
the BBQ pulled pork on pretzel roll is pretty awesome
great for blackhawks games. offical viewing party for away games. who knew?
Great beer selection and nice small/mid size venue for concerts. Prices aren't bad either.
Good acoustics. Loud. Cheap drinks.
Nice having 2 rooms for live music as well as a separate main bar for whatever mood.
Park for free at Bottom Lounge on Blackhawks game days! Enjoy a bite to eat and some drinks before catching a ride on the free bus to the UC for the game! Bus starts rolling 1 hour before puck drop.
Great venue for concerts.
Awesome small venue.
Seeing the Billvy again.
Awesome venue with great visibility no matter where you are, which is great for people who are short like me!
Free refills (on pop)
One of my favorite venues in Chicago. Great Beer Selection. Friendly staff. Motherfucking Bobby Orr pinball.
New Year's Eve 2014 Party at Bottom Lounge - Chicago, IL early @ Tuesday December 31, 2013.Grab Your Tickets @ http://tinyurl.com/mzj3nzd
Amazing beer selections and the front bar has super cute bartenders :)
The acoustics need improvement but still a decent place.
Schlitz is cheaper than water.
