Music, Friendly, Dancing Est. 1992
Music 7 days a week. Everything from Anti-pop Consortium to Trans Am, the indie-rock, electronic, experimental, jazz; post-this and pre-that.
This is Chicago’s premier indie rock club, hosting cutting-edge bands from home and abroad. “Cheap Sundays” and free Mondays remove the financial risk from gambling on an unknown bill.
Check out their free shows on Mondays. They always have cheap beer and beer&shot combos.
Don't pass out on da couch. I did once. Bruce had to carry me and put me on a bus bench. <3 this club.
The Empty Bottle was named one of the "Best Rock Clubs in America" by Rolling Stone magazine!!
A place where you can check out really eclectic sounds for fairly cheap, with a great beer selection. Whoever books their shows has good taste in metal.
They'll occasionally have tickets at the door for sold out shows. Show up early for those, or call, they're good at picking up at the Bottle. And remember, tugging Bob's beard is good luck.
Don't overlook the pinball machines.

Great music venue with pretty awesome acoustics. In between sets for Gang Gang Dance, jump into the old photobooth with some pals. Added bonus - the tamale guy that comes around at the end of the nigh
