    Here, there are several live lit shows you can catch in Chicago this winter. Guts & Glory, hosted by Keith Ecker and Samantha Irby, is never a disappointment. Read more

    Great music venue. Reminds me of NYC's Mercury Lounge.

    You can always sneak inside and listen to some nice bands live when the guy at the door isn't around ( which happens pretty often).

    Cuban with mac n cheese. Great combo!

    The omelettes at brunch are fantastic. If you're here for lunch or dinner, I highly recommend the Mac & cheese. You can add whatever you want to it and make it taste amazing. Get funky with it.

    One of my absolute favorite music venues in Chicago and it serves some of the best mac n cheese in the city, too!

  • Redeye Chicago

    The beautiful wood-accented back room of this 100-year-old building is one of the city's best places to catch local acts before they get big, while the front bar serves up a mean mac'n'cheese. Read more

    Its Schubas man! ...the best bands in the city play here. They don't let my band play here. Stroll in, pick up a $10 Schlitz and groove. This is where its at.

    Come to see one of many great shows and while the band is warming up you can get ready for a long night out with the Mac'N'Cheese. I love it with the pulled pork and broccoli.

    Fun music venue but gets so packed that you can't fully enjoy or see the performers even if you arrive early and get a table.

    The back room's a great size and has the best touring and local indie acts. The front room is where everybody knows your name. Check them out on Facebook - they're always giving away tickets to fans.
