Not to be confused with the Underground (the much buzzed-about River North bunker bar) this no-less-subterranean spot is more about the stage than the scene. Thursday through Saturday, local and touring acts of all musical stripes from jazz to punk take the small, barely elevated stage, and on the off nights, there's always pool.
