Metro is one of the city’s older and more famous clubs. Formerly known as the Cabaret Metro, it hosts a variety of midsize national touring acts of all genres, from rock to hip-hop to electronica. Metro holds a special significance or many established acts, and occasionally hosts one-off performances by bands that have long-outgrown the venue, including Foo Fighters and LCD Soundsystem. Stop by the adjacent GMan Tavern for a pre-show drink (you may run into one of the headlining artists knocking back whiskey) and head downstairs to Smart Bar after the final encore, where the music keeps playing late into the evening.

Metro is perhaps the music venue Chicagoans and out-of-towners are most well-acquainted. Metro is one of the best places in Chicago to see a band before they absolutely explode onto the scene. The sound is well done and the lighting is usually spot on, but like any bigger music venue, don't expect the drinks to be cheap.
