Set right in the heart of Wicker Park, this venue has a place for those seeking concerts–and for those simply seeking beer. The upstairs is devoted to a live stage, which features heavy rock and hip hop acts nightly, while the downstairs bar serves as a cozy den for a weekly lineup of reggae and house nights. Subterranean is also one of the best places in town for 17-and-up shows.

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.
