Time Out says

This subterranean club adjacent to Metro is a testament to Chicago's storied dance music history, hosting a weekly Sunday night party (Queen!) that carries the torch for the city's house music scene. The Wrigleyville venue is the local home base of internationally renowned DJs like the Black Madonna, Derrick Carter and Mark Farina—plus a stacked lineup of resident selectors. Whether you're listening to cutting-edge DJs or dusty old records, Smartbar's cozy confines and European sound system make it an ideal place to lose yourself to dance.
