    Bigger venue. The balcony seats are find but you have to get early if you want to be in front

    I have a sentimental connection with this venue since some of my first concerts were here but I really wish they would add some AC and serve other drinks besides alcohol! It's a health hazard.

    A favorite place to catch a concert. Great music venue! Love the history!

  • Nick F.

    Cool interior and big pit area for the crowd

    Nick Fruendt · May 28
  • Anamaria H.

    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.

  • Joseph B.

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

  • Hector M.

    The Coke is Fire bro!!

  • Geoffrey Z.

    What a venue for Weezer, Motion City and fun. The ceiling is the best part.

    Geoffrey ZuHone · February 3
  • James M.

    I really like the layout of this venue. The sound is clear and the view from the balcony is great.

    I wish I was on the same drugs as whoever painted the ceiling here

  • Sarah C.

    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.

    Sarah Colvin · August 10, 2014
  • Mike W.

    Cool looking venue.. no ventilation. Prepare to bake.

    Mike Watson · July 14, 2014
  • Tommy A.

    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

    Good luck getting phone or Internet reception. They desperately need free wifi of some sort!

    Andrea Kibler · May 17, 2014
  • Connie P.

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

    Connie Prater · November 23, 2013

    I definitely stand out here, being freshly bathed and all.

  • Matthew P.

    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.

    Matthew Patrick · February 19, 2012
  • Andy T.

    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.
