    You can see the view of the club that played in, in the movie purple rain. I love that view...

    Love the space, it's wide enough that you can see wherever you're standing and not too deep so you're always pretty close to the stage. Large bathrooms too.

    Great sight lines, even when it's packed. I like to stand stage right by the coat check if I want to hear the music but don't really care to watch the band.

    If you have an Illinois license, bring a second form of ID with your birthdate on it. Otherwise they'll try to say it's fake and won't let you in.

    Don't go to all ages shows if you are 21. They suck. If you want a drink they place you in a separate ward behind windows. Terrible sound.
