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

    It's not a good idea to try to smoke weed in here. Security is on point and they will kick your ass out!! ...unless you are real sneaky about it

  • Quinn M.

    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.

    Quinn M · August 26, 2014
  • Chris R.

    My favorite place to see live music.

    Chris R · August 25, 2014
  • Micah S.

    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.

  • Robbie H.

    Get there early for a seat along the railing upstairs.

    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.

    The headliner usually goes on around 10 p.m. Get there well before that for sold out shows for a good spot though.

    If you are a short woman, this place is huge and tall people seem to be abundant. You will be standing for a while unless you grab a table, but if you want to see wear tall boots or heels.
