Much like the Empty Bottle, this small club books some of the best indie touring acts around, but leaning toward the acoustic singer-songwriter end of the spectrum, and month-long residencies from local groups with a national profile. You can hang out in the front bar area without paying cover for the shows; if you’re under 21, go straight to the back room, which stages plenty of all-ages and over-18 shows. The Harmony Grill serves up a mean brunch on weekends.

Oh, Schubas. Despite the fact the owner recently sold this Chicago icon to the people who run Lincoln Hall, not much has changed. I almost like the bar at Schubas more than I like the place as a concert venue. The quality of the music varies wildly. You could stop in one night and see a show that's downright awful and another that is the best you've seen all year—it's all a part of the Schubas aesthetic.
