    This venue fits a ton of people. If you like pits, come here. If you don't like crowds and people stepping on your toes, stay away.

    The interior has a feeling of grit and authenticity that simply doesn't exist in modern venues.

    Worst venue in Chicago. No air conditioning so it gets really hot and stuffy during a show and you end up sweating like a pig. Way to over priced for drinks especially for what you get.

    Please avoid the Aragon Ballroom. No A/C and $5. for water. I don't care how great the acts are that play here, I and many others will not be back no matter the price. Not worth the cost. #NewOrder

    Decor is cool, but the sound is awful, the place will have you sweating like crazy, and shitty beers are $7.

    Not impressed. The sound here is horrible. They should fire the entire sound crew. Can't hear vocals. Bass/lows distorted. I feel sorry for the bands.

    Hey you! Since you're so close, stop by for some hummus, baba ganoush, Greek chicken or gyros before the show. 1st check-in gets you $10 off the purchase of 2 entrees.
