Thalia Hall

The newest jewel in the Chicago music scene, this antique concert hall in Pilsen was rehabbed and reopened by Empty Bottle owners Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden, in the grand space above their restaurant and bar—Dusek's Board and Beer and Punch House. Yep, you can get Punch House punches at a rock show, too. A balcony wraps around the room and opera boxes hang above the stage, and you can sit inside them for a price during select shows. The bookings lean a little City Winery, a little Empty Bottle (of course) so far ranging from Americana to psychedelic.

Beautiful venue with fun concerts, delightful double-feature movie nights, and street festivals.

I came here for a sold out comedy show, the seating was first come, first served so I was a little worried about that, but we ended up getting two seats on the floor which was amazing. The venue itself is very nice. There is easy access to the bar, and I can see it being great for concerts as well. Both Punch House and Dusek's are downstairs which are great places to go before or after your show. Highly recommend checking out a show here!

Thalia hall is a great music concert. The restored historic building is the perfect amount of grime meets elegance. They book great indy bands and Dusek's is right downstairs in case you get the munchies after your show!

Large space with pretty good acoustics in a beautifully restored historical building. The drink selection is better than a lot of other venues and they usually have a punch option as well. Also sometimes you can grab a hot dog if you're hungry. Although you really should grab dinner at Dusek's downstairs then drinks at Tack Room or Punch House after and make a full night of it. Great lineup of eclectic acts and indie staples.
