  • This was the venue of the inaugural "Rock the Red" show, in 2010!
  • Order a Schlitz and use the two quarters from your change to play pinball.
  • Great sound, but it can be LOUD. Bring earplugs.
  • Well maintained AND affordable! They even give you the option to roam in and out!
  • They have a Photo Booth
  • visit upstairs with Dino!!!
  • Play pinball: Bobby Orr Power Play, Champion Pub, Creature from the Black Lagoon, FunHouse, Gilligan's Island, Seawitch, The Addams Family
  • Sucks that they don't allow stage diving or crowd surfing. Pretty good place to see a show, regardless.
  • Jaegger is for Freshmen. Try a chilled shot of locally-made 70 Proof hum, The World's Most Unique Rum.
  • The beer list was brought to you from the heavens, but whiskey is where it's at. We like to be right up front here. Check in and leave a photo of some of those killer wings. TW 's Bottom Lounge.
  • Always forget its closed on Mondays.
  • If you need a cab, the security guys will call one for you .
  • Only tip you need to know is how amazing the back rooftop balcony is on a summer night. Best place to enjoy a cold beer IMO
  • Great place to see a show and watch blackhawks games! Also, try the black bean burger it's amazing!
  • For a lot of shows, the security guys will have people waiting outside to get in. If it's cold/rainy/whatever, just tell them you're there to get something to eat and you can wait inside.
  • metal movie nights upstairs on weds.
  • Amazing beer selections and the front bar has super cute bartenders :)
  • Belgian frites with fried egg and basil aioli. Oh, and-- I guess-- live music.
  • As most have noted, this place has a fantastic beer selection
  • You get really looked after here backstage. sound engineer was great, great quality on and off stage. Nice food too, salads were great, makes a change from your normal bar burgers
