In its half decade of existence, Lincoln Hall has quickly become one of the city's most vital venues. This is typically where you go see that band that is blowing up, or the artier ones that have already blown up. A stone's throw from the gravesite of the legendary Lounge Ax club, the joint books everyone from Foxygen to Charli XCX in this great sounding room (Wilco bestowed some of its high-end sound gear). The design is sleeker and more modern than its Lakeview sibling, Schubas, but the fresh-ground burger and the big booths are just as inviting. Yeah, even the food is good.

Lincoln hall is a great venue that hosts some great big name bands! The venue is just the right size that makes it feel intimate without being too small. They have loads of bars too so its never to long of a wait to get drinks!
Lincoln Hall is easily my favorite venue for intimate concerts in the city. Watch the lineup for appearances by great up-and-coming bands that everyone will soon be listening to in addition to your current favorites. The beer list and food menu here are also solid, especially for a music venue! Highly recommend catching a show here.
Lincoln Hall is a spacious music venue with multiple bars and plenty of options for taking in the music. You can sit at one of the round tables in the back and watch the show on one of the bar TVs, or get close to the action by the stage in the main room. There's also great viewing from the balcony.
Lincoln Hall is charming venue that caters mostly to an indie crowd, but you'll find a few bigger names on stage every now and then. Expect solid lineups peppered with names you haven't heard before, but will listening to for a long time. Oh, and the sound quality isn't too bad either.
