Tips

  • Phil Kosch is a golden God.
  • Championship Vinyl employee Barry (Jack Black) finally gets his big musical break, in scenes for "High Fidelity" (2000) that were shot at the Double Door in Wicker Park.
  • no more smoking passes! ask for a smoking bracelet!
  • Live music fans congregate at the often standing-room only Double Door, which has hosted thousands of up-and-coming and established musicians, including the Rolling Stones and the Smashing Pumpkins.
  • Smoking passes! They are great!
  • Great sound system.... One of the best "small show" venues i have been to..
  • You are currently on one of the trendiest streets in Chicago! If you have time, take a walk around the area. There are a bunch of cool shops!
  • Go to a concert here!
  • Classic Chicago venue, too bad the sound sucks.
  • Every trip...all I can think about are TOP 5s...High Fidelity baby.
  • Great bands + good acoustics = good times (acts like Art Brut and Bob Log III). But if you come here during the summer, bring a fan. They have AC, but they never seem to turn it on.
  • We do love a hipster bar - especially one with a great live line-up!
  • Smashing Pumpkins, VAST, Hole, Killing Hanah.... Need I say more? Coming up are Rocklahoma, DJ Quik, RAW and so much more! A staple in Chicago
  • With the feel of a rehearsal room/basement, the club's sound system and layout are prime for music lovers.
  • Get there early enough to snag a seat at the bar. Spin halfway to watch the band, spin halfway again to grab a drink. Repeat as needed.
  • Blah Blah Blah rocked my fucking world!
  • If your a shorty like me go upstairs!! Its a little far away from the stage but worth it to actually see everything if you always have tall people in front of you like me.
  • Large venue featuring great music. Pluses are strong drinks and a great soundsystem.
  • The bartenders actually thank you for tipping! Unlike some venues that act like you lowe them. Crazy!
  • Love this place for hot music! Before your night out double back to @citysoles
