Set right in the heart of Wicker Park, this venue has a place for those seeking concerts—and for those simply seeking a place to grab a beer. The upstairs is devoted to a live stage, which features rock and hip-hop acts nightly. The downstairs bar serves as a cozy den for the occasional concert, a weekly lineup of DJ nights and one of the city most well-attended hip-hop open mics.

If you're looking for a cheap beer and good local music, Subterranean is worth checking out. It's narrow halls turn every show into an intimate affair, and the second floor balcony offers a birds eye view of both the stage and crowd. Just don't stop and try to watch the show from the stairs...You will be ushered along.
