Time Out says

Don’t be fooled by its unassuming storefront: This is Chicago’s premier indie rock club, hosting cutting-edge bands from home and abroad. If you need to get away from the noise for a while, the club has a comfortable front room, complete with a pool table and pinball. At the bar, you'll find affordable drinks, yellowed gig posters and tons of strips from the Bottle's old photo booth. Come to see your favorite garage rocker, up-and-coming band or electronic tinkerer (and show up on Monday nights, when most shows are free to attend).
