    Un lugar histórico, musicalmente hablando. Aquí se han presentado grupos como The Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, Wilco, y Cheap Trick. Si te gusta la música, debes de visitar este lugar.

  • Nate H.

    PBR Tall boy = $5

    Nate H · August 26, 2011

    Great bands + good acoustics = good times (acts like Art Brut and Bob Log III). But if you come here during the summer, bring a fan. They have AC, but they never seem to turn it on.

  • Thompson Hotels

    Our concierge Catherine at Sax Chicago says to catch Art Brut at the Double Door.

  • The Feast

    Get there early enough to snag a seat at the bar. Spin halfway to watch the band, spin halfway again to grab a drink. Repeat as needed.
