    The best sound system of any music venue in Chicago. Wildly clean, two levels, and multiple bars make Lincoln Hall a complete joy for enjoying live music.

    The best venue in Chicago? Possibly. Certainly better than the movie theater that was here.

    Joe Carpita · March 4

    Amazing venue that has coat hooks to the left and right of the stage instead of a coat check!

    The balcony was the only place with seats for the Shakey Graves show 12/3/14 and it filled first, so it was good we got there before the doors opened

    Definitely one of the best concert venues in the city. Arrive a little early and get a seat along the balcony upstairs.

    One of my favorite venues in Chicago. Easy to get up close.

    Larger than Schubas, this music venue shares the intimacy, sound and reputation of its Lakeview sibling. Past indie and rock acts include Japandroids, Portugal. The Man and Chicago's Wild Belle. Read more

    Clear sightlines from wherever you decide to stand and an amazing sound system make attending shows a total pleasure. The warm interior is complemented by a friendly staff and a quality food menu. Read more

    The food is great. The beers are even better. And the view from the Mezz cannot be beat. But best of all, the bathrooms are clean! Love this venue 😍👍

    Lincoln Hall is in Lincoln Park near De Paul's campus. It is a great place to go on any given night to listen to your favorite band or be introduced to new music.TIP: buy tickets online;they sell fast

  • Susan A.

    Best place in Chicago to see a show. Get there early to grab a chair in the balcony for a great view. Easy parking. Great beer selection also. Love this place.

  • Joshua N.

    Apparently adding ice also adds $2 to the drink special.

    Great venue with reasonable ticket and drink prices. Simple to get to, easy to park, and surrounded by tons of great places to eat before heading to a show.

    Come for one of the many top notch bands that stop here for the high quality sound, or one of the '3Penny was Here' movie nights, and feel at home with the amazingly friendly staff.

    Lots of room upstairs. Nicest bartenders in town.

    LH is the younger, but bigger brother of Schubas....The sound is just as good, the food is similar and the shows are quality...downfall - the parking SUCKS!

    Center seating in balcony (near railing) is good as any seat if not better. You can order food and drinks up there and there's no pushing or shoving. My favorite venue in Chicago. Acoustically awesome

    Come for a show, stay for the food! Great venue, and the burgers are fantastic.
